Ashes of Creation New Gameplay Video and New Dev Hires
Sharif warns that this video is early, pre-alpha video footage, so is not merely likely to change - it will be changing as the game is developed. But Intrepid is determined to be as transparent as possible, and they will continue to provide footage and information about each stage of development as it is reached.
"Please enjoy this PRE-ALPHA gameplay and note that many things are placeholders including the combat! But we wanted to show you the state of our Pre-Alpha at the moment, and keep our development as transparent as possible.From everyone at Intrepid, thank you so much for the amazing support you have shown us!" -Steven Sharif
These new hires bring a wealth of experience to Intrepid, ranging from historic titles like Everquest to new favorites such as H1Z1. I'm excited to see an actual economist on the team, hopefully this will mean a more functioning economy than is typical in MMOs!
