Release schedule

Glorious Ashes of Creation community, the month long Alpha One testing period has come to an end. On behalf of the entire team at Intrepid I would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our amazing A1 testers. They have endured a lot of spot tests, during crazy hours over the last several months. The data, feedback and conversations with our players has been a wealth of help in guiding our hands for the trek to Alpha Two.

I also want to thank our wonderful community, for following along with the testing, development updates, and giving your thoughts across the discord, forums, Reddit and all of our social channels.

Ashes is a huge endeavor and it’s being built with passion from our magnificent team at Intrepid. So I want to express mine and John’s deepest felt thanks to the hardworking colleagues we go to work with everyday. This is a big milestone for the project, and I think I speak for our community when I say, Great job Intrepid team.

We have a lot to do, and as always we will be keeping everyone informed on our progress with our monthly updates. Our goal has been and shall continue to be a quality focused MMORPG to make us all proud to call Ashes of Creation. Much love to everyone.[33]Steven Sharif
