Ashes of Creation is a unique take on the MMO experience, featuring a dynamic world structure built to react to the actions of our players.

Pitting 100s of players at a time against each other in a massive world of high fantasy and all-out warfare, Ashes of Creation Apocalypse builds upon and refines many of the core systems at the heart of Ashes of Creation while letting players experience its stunning action and visuals right away.

Ashes of Creation Apocalypse delivers a self-contained, standalone experience for fans of competitive action, combat, and chaos. The game will launch with a full-fledged battle royale mode in which 100 players will duke it out with destructive weapons and magic until the last person is left standing. After release, new unique modes will be introduced, letting 200 players join forces in massive castle siege battles, as well as co-op horde mode missions in which small groups must fight off ravenous hordes of vicious demons.

The Open Beta tests for Ashes of Creation Apocalypse are ongoing, and Intrepid Studios are in the middle of another long weekend event right now, but revealed during livestream is a feature the devs think will help separate Apocalypse from the throng of online battle games - castle siege mode.

Trebuchets, ballistae, catapults, siege towers, giant balls of fire and broken castle walls... It's gonna be a good time, right?

But wait - there’s more!

Intrepid Studios also revealed the classes that are coming to the same with the Castle Siege update. There are six in total, spread across three disciplines - Warrior, DPS, and Support. The Guardian and Weaponmaster are your Warrior classes, while the Archwizard and the Hawkeye are ranged DPS experts, and finally the High Priest and Engineer will be your support classes. You'll be able to see them in action very soon.

And don't forget that you and anyone else can hit up the ongoing Open Beta test weekend which began this morning and will run through Sunday, January 13th at 10pm PST.

To further reinforce the bridge that Ashes of Creation Apocalypse creates to Ashes of Creation, every cosmetic item that players earn or buy while playing Ashes of Creation Apocalypse will be added to their Ashes of Creation account for use in the MMORPG when it goes live.

To recap: Ashes of Creation Apocalypse is a precursor to Ashes of Creation. It’s high fantasy battle royale and a cooperative horde mode experience and a massive siege warfare destruction-fest, all in one. Players around the world can play with and against each other, with no region lock in place. All of this will connect to Ashes of Creation when it arrives. And it’s free!
