Pre-order package to play?

Hello. Just wondering, which pre-order package would allow someone to play now? And what beta is the game in currently?

TIA :smiley:

    None of the currently available packs will grant you immediate access.
    AOC is in Alpha 1 right now, which will last until May 2021. If you haven't purchased an A1 key in the past, there's no way of getting in at the moment.

    Next up is Alpha 2 (no date), followed by Beta 1 and Beta 2. You can buy access to these in the shop, but none of them have a confirmed "release" date.

    Intrepid may have some Alpha Keys that you can win by participating in certain events, but outside of that as ShadonSol mentioned you cannot get into it by normal methods.

    Small clarification. The current timeline graphic given by Intrepid has a month long A1 test that ends beginning of May. There may be more A1 testing sessions after that. They have not announced when it will end. Mainly because they don't know.

    Hi there. As others have said, the game is currently in Pre-alpha testing with alpha 1 due to begin soon (see https://ashesofcreation.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016315013 for further details). The highest access you can buy into right now is Alpha 2, which is due to start sometime after Alpha 1.

    I'm going to close this thread now, but if you have any further questions or need more clarification please feel free to reach out again.
