[AoC] Ashes of Creation (MMORPG Coming 2018)

Developed by San Diego-based Intrepid Studios, there are several former developers who had worked previously for SOE/Daybreak. Clearly the influence of the ill-fated EverQuest Next can be seen here. I can't know until after launch if this should have been EverQuest III or not. But I do wonder.

They initiated an All or Nothing Kickstarter with a goal of $750,000. As of this posting, the funds generated have reached $2,792,884.

Please let this not be vaporware. Please let it not be vaporware.

It looks really good and takes a lot of the concepts I loved from EverQuest Next, but I'm holding my breath for now. Every time I get too excited over a new MMO that has stuff that would be great for RPing, something goes wrong. Good to see they far surpassed their funding goal, though.

I was following this on Kickstarter, but it got to sounding like way more than they could conceivably deliver. Particularly with all the stretch goals they chalked up.

If anything ever comes of it though, I'll happily eat those words someday.

It's easy to make promises, much more difficult to deliver. But I'll be keeping my eye on this, because if they can deliver it could be a lot of fun to play.

Glorious Citizens of the MMORPG genre. As part of our open and transparent development process, we are showing you today an EARLY look at our first testing environment called Alpha Zero. This is a Work in Progress and rough look at what over 60 developers are hard at work preparing Ashes of Creation's Alpha Zero. There are many internal testing phases that will lead up to our Closed Alpha One launch in 2018. The team is grateful for your support and enthusiasm for Ashes, and we promise not to let you down. With Love, - Steven
