Intrepid has been cooking up a lot for us who’ve been following and keeping up with the latest news when it comes to Ashes of Creation! Here are some of the updates and topics that were discussed on their latest livestream regarding on what they’ve been doing and are planning to launch.
The topics discussed were some daily reminders and studio updates which consisted of the new cosmetics from the cosmetics store. The result of the current discussion from this month which was the ideal class and the announcement of the upcoming hybrid combat. They also announced a new discussion about guild halls.
They have stated that they will NOT be opening Alpha One key sales right now as they have hit quite a few snags during their testing recently so they are working around the clock to fix these issues and they will keep up update when these keys do come back on sale in the future.
THE GAMEPLAY (DUELS)
A 30-minutes clip of the Intrepid team where they showed us how much the underwater scene looks which was obviously a great change and most of us are pleased because they are taking our feedbacks so quickly. After they went to shore, they went ahead to discuss the issues they were having this month that caused the delay in Alpha One. Then they moved on to talk about the Fireball Spell. They talked about changing abilities to be more free flow for players allowing them to move easier in combat without committing to long animations that root you in place.
They continued to doing a bit of quests that involved talking to NPCs, spawning giant spiders, killing tiny birds, until finally, abandoning the area when they acquired a compass spell animation to retrieve 10 blown away pages. Then followed by some duels where Steven was being destroyed in the first half.
Next they showed us some ruins pieces and interestingly, Jeff said they have recently done a corruption pass around here which changes the area drastically which also sounds super cool.
Then they showed us some concept pieces for some environment props followed by a mount that looks wickedly and insanely good and on top of that, it is earnable whilst in-game!
Up comes next is another samples of concept art that is also earnable in-game which is a Kirin. One of these the creatures of Aereon and the other one is the mount.
They also showed us an armor set which was the Protector Armor. Congrats to anyone who manages to buy this because it’s just truly amazing!
The final concept art they showed us a couple of art pieces of what appears to be a place for an NPC race. This one in particular is called the Salari and they look like a tribal race of birdlike creatures.
