Ashes of Creation Apocalypse will be coming soon for players to jump into, hitting Early Access on September 24th.
Being treated as a prequel to the upcoming Ashes of Creation MMORPG, the standalone battle arena will give players a chance to both test new systems and content before the Ashes of Creation launch.
Via a press release from Intrepid Studios:
In Apocalypse, the world of Verra is on the brink of destruction - the only way out is to be the last one standing. It is an arena-based game which will support several different game modes, including battle royale-style gameplay, castle sieges, and gigantic monster horde battles! Our high fantasy setting, the vast array of gear and spells, and our massively destructible environments make for an experience unlike anything you’ve played. Hop in, stay alive, and win the glory.
Key features will include multi-mode matches, ranging from solos to 4-player squads, building destruction, diverse combat styles and more. Additionally, any armor, mounts or cosmetics earned in Apocalypse will transfer when the MMORPG goes live.
You can check out the official post on the Ashes of Creation website. Apocalypse will be free to play, so players can start slinging spells on September 24th.
