If you are a big fan of MMORPG's, then you will likely have already heard of Ashes of Creation- a sprawling ever-expanding RPG that is set to take up a lot of time for video games fans when it eventually gets a full release.


The game has been in the testing stage for some time as it works to perfect things and whilst some players have been a part of that, there are still many of us waiting for the full version to really sink our teeth into what the world has to offer.

Here’s everything we know so far about Ashes of Creation.

When is the Ashes of Creation release date?

While we still do not know the actual date we will see the full game, many gamers have already been playing thanks to the numerous tests that have been done on the various aspects of the game, dating back to late 2017. The most recent was in May of this year with another, Alpha 1, planned for later in the year. Expect more details for that to be announced soon.

What platforms can I get Ashes of Creation on?

As things currently stand, this is a game for Windows PC only and while there are no plans for that to change just yet, the developers have said they are open to the possibility of porting the game over to consoles in the future. Being a Microsoft game, look for this to be Xbox only if that does happen.

What is the Ashes of Creation about?

As per the official synopsis: Ashes of Creation is a unique take on the MMO experience. The world structure is dynamic and built to react to the actions of the players. Cities will rise and fall, their populations based on the history of the world as the players create it. Quests will unlock as these populations gather, their needs grow, and secrets are unlocked. As the world’s NPC structure is established in real-time, players will have the ability to destroy what they’ve created, paving the way for new development, new populations, and real change. Political strife and intrigue will play a very real role in the structure of the world. Gone are the days of static worlds, change is here to stay.
