Intrepid Studios, makers of the highly anticipated MMORPG Ashes of Creation, have revealed a free-to-play battle-royale standalone named Ashes of Creation Apocalypse, which will be linked to the world of Ashes of Creation and launch in open beta for free on December 18 for Windows PC.
Ashes of Creation Apocalypse will deliver a self-contained, standalone battle royale experience “for fans of competitive action, combat, and chaos”, while setting up a bridge between the two games to increase player interest in both, a bit like Fortnite’s PVE/PVP-hybrid model.
“The game will launch with a full-fledged battle royale mode in which 100 players will duke it out with destructive weapons and magic until the last person is left standing. After release, new unique modes will be introduced, letting 200 players join forces in massive castle siege battles, as well as co-op horde mode missions in which small groups must fight off ravenous hordes of vicious demons“.
Players can register now at Ashes of Creation Apocalypse’s official website to play ahead of the December 18th launch.
