Greetings, glorious adventurers! If you're joining in our Alpha One spot testing, please follow the steps here to see all the latest test info on our forums and Discord!
I've casually poked around the site looking for any information about signing up for a beta. Is this only accessible through the games' kickstarter? The Founder tier looked like it provides access to alpha phase 2 - I think that's where the game is at now?
Also, a2 is next but not for months yet. If u want a2 package, wait for one you like.
Alpha 1 was almost 2 years ago. It ended on August 15th 2021. There are no dates for Alpha 2. Steven said in the March livestream that "Alpha 2 is not right around the corner but is not years away". He said the plan is to begin internal testing (meaning internal at Intrepid) around the end of this year/early next year and then gradually invite testers in, most likely beginning with Phoenix Initiative members.
I can't find my request for ue5 upgrade thread prior to ue5 upgrade so I'm not sure if its been scrubbed or when exactly I made the request before the dev announcement. Thus, a1 might not have been ue4 but my memory thinks it was.
I think it will be fast once a2 is dusted. Much of the game will be nailed down by the end of a2.
He is just being a doom poster.
Idk mate we are pushing 3 years since A1 by the time A2 launches, A2 will probably be atleast 18 months long then a 6 month break between betas
They're definitely meant to be brief but we've never known the timeline of how quickly they'll occur after A2.
See if you can make a tulnar snorse Maggie
Hopefully the a2 duration is a year or more. I remember the devs saying it would be a year. I want an rtx 5090 or 5090 ti laptop to play ashes on it they won't release until around q1 2025.
a year is to long man, we are probably a year off A2 atleast, then a year of testing, then a year of waiting for betas, then 6 months each beta, game will never release
Thus, there should be only 2 or 3 years until launch.
Don't forget COVID happened, that set everything back a bit.
It'll probably be around a year. With the pre order packs being 250 and all, they need to start collecting subscription money around the 1 year mark to start paying for the additional 50 + employees they'll need for the live product.
