2020 will prove to be a year of progress and MMORPG testing. Next month, we will begin internal testing of the MMORPG Alpha One client. I am also proud to announce that at the Game Developers Conference in March of 2020, we will be showing off an early look at Alpha One.[1]Steven Sharif

We have a lot of work ahead of us. In 2020, we will be inviting you into the Alpha One test phase where you will get to experience the systems and mechanics of the MMORPG we have all been waiting for. We are excited for all of the data this will provide us with and cannot wait to make the iterations necessary to create the MMORPG of our dreams. The Alpha One experience will not be under NDA, so our glorious community will be able to watch along as our Alpha One testers take their first steps into Verra.[1]Steven Sharif

Additionally, 2020 will see the public testing of our Castle Siege mode in Apocalypse, where players will be able to experience our objective-based warfare, siege weapons, and destruction systems that will be employed in the MMORPG. As we continue development, we will be working to always improve our communication with our amazing community.[1]Steven Sharif

The Ashes of Creation release schedule is subject to change.[2]

In 2020, you can look forward to new blogs on classes, node types, freehold buildings and equipment. As well as, more in-depth videos that showcase a whole host of systems our Alpha One players will be experiencing in their testing.[1]Steven Sharif

Pre-order packs

Ashes of Creation Silver Sheens and Gleaming Dreams pre-order packs.[27]

The pure shine of sterling is joined with the prismatic brilliance of rubies. Kaelar nobility have long had a flair for the romantic, and only the Vek's mastery of silverwork can meet a noble's exacting standards. Here, no expense is spared on a display fit only for the most passionate of royalty.[27]

Pre-order packs are available from the Cosmetic store.[28]
