Yea, it seemed like a shitty fantasy version of Fortnite battle royal.

Honestly, the fact that they put out a battle royale PvP thing out bothers me less than the massive amount of "click here to pay to unlock features" buttons in the AoC:Apocalypse beta. It has the unpleasant smell of financial desperation, which is always a bad sign in game studio.

Hopefully I am wrong, because i'd love a nice, new, fun MMORPG to come out!


This. I surely hope this whiff of bullshit turns out to be a false concern. I will not be downloading...they already have my money anyhow.

Battle Royale was a Japanese book/movie where kids were thrown on an island and forced to battle in a last-man-standing contest. Later, the Hunger Games books/movies were the same theme.

It's a popular game mode right now thanks to games like Fortnite and PUBG, but PvP was never my cup of tea.

from what I understood from following the forums is that they wanted to stress test the PVP aspect of the game for large node attacks and figuring that to be one of the bigger hurdles for the game to be able to handle. so they did a massive PVP style event. never had a chance to get into it myself but supposedly once they're satisfied with this they will focus more on the rest of the game. or something to that effect.

for some reason there is a meme going around calling it "Battle Royale" but I only recall a movie or two of that name and not any MMO- unless they mean the movies?

Everywhere I click, there are places for me to spend Embers (in game currency) to unlock something.

Yea. I was wondering if they actually expected you to spend real money on a very much in beta game that was really clunky and all that.

I eventually got into a queue. It felt like Fortnite. We stood around in a city. Eventually, a big portal flashed and engulfed us all. We all ended up on griffins and flew down to the surface. I picked up a weapon and some armour and then someone shot me in the head. I had no idea what was going on.

And now the game installer won't uninstall from my computer. I would suggest not downloading this crap.

Ashes of Creation is officially out for me.

I am waiting for Anthem to go live.


EDIT: I had to install iobit unistaller to get rid of the 16gb game installer and all the associated files. It wouldn't uninstall. Annoying.

I downloaded this Apocalypse beta, but haven't played.

I was expecting the MMORPG beta... but this prequel seems seriously sketchy. Everywhere I click, there are places for me to spend Embers (in game currency) to unlock something. When I choose solo mode and try to Play, I just get stuck in a queue for awhile until I get bored and quit the game.

Whatever this "Apocalypse" battle royale prequel is from Intrepid Studios, I am pretty sure I want no part of it. Feels like a money grab where they try to keep the place alive long enough to finish the MMO.

Like EQ Landmark ahead of EQ Next...  :pms

I haven't been following developments religiously, so I didn't know anything about this.

It sounds like some sort of beta test for a high fantasy battle royale mode for the full MMO.

Just FYI, it is really buggy and slow. You need to log into the new website with your old username to transfer it to the new one. Then you can login to the client. Then you need to probably restart it a bunch of times to get it to start downloading properly. I finally got it going. It is downloading right now. I will take a look after it is finished. If it doesn't crash in the process.

EDIT: Actually, I don't know what the hell this is. I thought ti was supposed to be beta for am MMO but it is asking me to queue into games? There is no character creation? I have no idea what is going on with this.

EDIT: I think I queued into a PvP match? Someone just killed me. Wtf? I am confused.
