Ashes of Creation developer Intrepid Studios is growing on all fronts. The team has been expanded by seven, though we have yet to learn who these folks are. In addition, the tester pool has grown to over 2,000 and the game is progressing towards Alpha 1. Lastly, there are a bunch of new cosmetic items that can already be preordered from the Store.
We've just completed a two-week straight stable test with over 2,000 players (who are sworn to silence by NDA and honor bound to keep our secrets). We're getting closer and closer to the Alpha 1 testing phase, and we even showed off some of the updated gameplay HERE on our recent livestream.
All this means that we are currently AHEAD OF SCHEDULE for our Alpha 1 deployment. Once we've got a solid date, we'll be sure to sound the horns and let the cat out of the rather large bag of holding.
