Ashes of Creation 優先測試產品包:

Ashes of Creation

Ashes of Creation website redesign preview (WIP).[47]

Ashes of Creation 設定在中世紀奇幻世界,將想像結合尖端的遊戲畫面。我們希望透過獨特、新穎的機制,賦予玩家行為意義,將大型多人的元素體現出來。Ashes of Creation 將傳統 MMORPG 最出色的特點與創新的沙盒概念結合。玩家可以自由決定自己的命運,而玩家作出的選擇都伴隨着後果,讓任務線會根據玩家與世界的互動而改變。文明會打擾大自然的規律,令怪物到處肆虐。決定市鎮的位置以至城市的大小都將改變世界的面貌。每個世界都有獨特的文化、生態和經濟。[48]

Ashes of Creation 是一款開發中、設定在古典奇幻世界的 MMORPG,玩家的行為將影響世界的形成。[49]

Ashes of Creation 打造的 MMO 體驗是個獨特新嘗試。有着動態的世界,並會隨着玩家的行為而改變,繼而出現的是經歷興衰存亡的城市、隨歷史變遷的人口、以及因人口聚集和需求增長而解鎖的任務和秘密。藉着實時的NPC架構,玩家可以摧毀自己創造的一切,開闢全新的發展和人口,帶來真正的改變。政治紛爭和陰謀也對世界的形成影響深遠。靜止世界不復存在,改變將成常態。[48]

Ashes of Creation 的暫定名稱原是 The World of Origins[50]

Alpha-1

Alpha-1 Teaser.[51]

This is a true development alpha. This is not a marketing alpha; and what that means is as you know part of the process here in developing Ashes of Creation is being open with that development so you guys can see that progress; and it is a double-edged sword. There are going to be a spectrum of people that exists who are very involved with the game's development and those who are just completely at an arm's length away in understanding the process; and they may look at alpha one- the people who don't really understand the development process or haven't been a part of it- they may look at it and they may think oh you know this is trash, looks like trash, you know whatever it's the end-product. But at the end of the day what's important for us and what yields the best possible product is for us to include as much as possible the community in that development process with no NDA so that you guys give valuable feedback; and as we go through the iterative process in further defining the game and fleshing out that content were doing so with the player in mind and their voice in our ear. That is I think one of the key distinguishing factors between our development and many developments that you guys may have seen in the past.[52]Steven Sharif

Alpha-1 preview ancients mobs.[53]

What this experience for Alpha one is going to be- that month-long experience- it is not intended to be a content experience... It is not intended to be a game experience. It is not intended to be a fully-fledged content experience. So keep that in mind.[54]Steven Sharif

Alpha-1 is a testing release of the Ashes of Creation MMORPG.[56] Alpha-1 will test:

The weapon attack is an important component of the combat system, so we want to make sure that as we're doing this combat revamp that we are essentially taking into consideration player feedback and sentiment about how they want a reactive and more mobile weapon attack system.[58]Steven Sharif

  • 成長 to level 15.[61][62]
    The composition of class skills or archetype skills has to tread a fine line between two roads: One we wanted to be representative of skills not just that would traditionally be found 1 through 15 but we're actually introducing some skills that might be found later, because we want to test those particular ideas and how the skill functions.[61]Steven Sharif
  • 4 playable races.[57]
    A lot of times people ask well why haven't we seen the other races and stuff? We want to establish the quality bar and process with these races first and then when we move into further content production for the other races we have have those pipelines in place and we have the processes in place and we know how to approach them.[64]
  • The economy present in Alpha-1 is not reflective of the final state of the game.[78]
    We have an economy but it's not really going to be reflective of the final how the economy is going to work. It'll work for alpha one and there'll be plenty of things to trade and buy and exchange, but it's not going to be really super representative what the final state is. So keep that in mind as well it's a stubbed-in system. It's not a complete or really finalized system at all.[78]Jeffrey Bard
  • 船舶 for "island hopping".[90][91]
    • Temporary teleportation points are present in early tests until ships are introduced later in the alpha testing.[90]
info-orange.pngSome of the following information has not been recently confirmed by the developers and may not be on the current development roadmap for Alpha-1.

Alpha-2

Alpha 2 測試目標是推出幾乎所有核心系統,玩家到時候將可以開始看到更完善的系統。[96]Steven Sharif

Alpha-2 將為不關機 Alpha 測試。[33][34] 預計屇時將推出所有核心遊戲系統,包括:

第一次 Alpha 測試中,介面、教學系統、以及大部分任務都是暫時性的,較正式的版本於第二次 Alpha 測試時才會推出。[23]Steven Sharif

擁有 Alpha-1Alpha-2 測試資格的玩家將有機會被邀請參與 Alpha-2 測試前的抽樣測試。[96]

Beta 測試

The Beta-1 and Beta-2 testing phases of Ashes of Creation will be short.[102]

The game should be pretty much done (at beta stage) and final polish and stuff like that being put in. We don't want people to get totally burnt out on the game before we actually release. So once we get to the beta phases it should be short and sweet.[102]Jeffrey Bard

Beta testing of Ashes of Creation (the MMORPG) will be closed.[105]

搶先體驗

搶先體驗 grants early access one or two days prior to the live launch of Ashes of Creation for crowdfunding backers at the Founder level and above.[106]

  • Head start is a means to gradually ramp up the population to avoid player concurrency issues at launch.[107]
  • Head start will also be a way to address any last-minute launch or deployment issues.[108]

The point of head start is twofold: One for testing, making sure that the live launch servers pre-wipe are good; and then Two, it's a way to stagger the population move into the game. Because if you have servers with 10,000 concurrent player capability and you have everyone logging in at the exact same time, that is a problem I've never seen an MMO tackle successfully, ever.[107]Steven Sharif

搶先優驗伺服器

The number of head start servers is estimated to be three. This is subject to change.[109]

  • There will be an OCE headstart server.[110]

搶先體驗的限制

The game functionality is limited during the head start period so that players cannot decide the world-scape earlier than others.[111]

  • During the head start, the node system will be deactivated.[111]
  • Head start specific servers are also planned.[111]
  • It will not be possible to secure player housing during the headstart period due to the deactivation of the node system.[111]

Head start was not a mistake, I tend to listen to my development team with regards to their vast past experiences in mmo launches and development. Advice from engineering on head starts was they are extremely desired in order to test any last minute launch/deployment issues that “always” happen. So I did as much as possible to mitigate the potential p2w elements/issues while still adhering to sound development principles. Including designating which servers are head start servers. So wanna make sure we don’t “chop” this one as a mistake or misstep. Everything done is done to ensure a quality launch/product.[108]Steven Sharif

保密協議

We are extremely excited to invite folks to this glorious milestone of our development journey with NO NDA as we want everyone to be able to provide feedback unfiltered. During Alpha One testing, we'll be looking for your feedback specifically on the following things: download and installation process, client performance, and server performance.[2]

參加人數

Alpha and Beta participation is expected to grow with the sale of pre-order packs.[117]

刪檔

Alpha and Beta servers will be wiped prior to launch.[118]

  • Alpha-1 testing phases will include full wipes.[119]
  • Servers may also be wiped between individual tests, unless the developers require progression to be saved for certain spot tests.[120]

As a general rule, if the testing phase contains the word Alpha, it is safe to assume there will likely be wipes.[121]Steven Sharif
