We are extremely excited to give you an early preview of our Freeholds in Ashes of Creation, including some updated design information! This 4K video is just a taste of what’s to come!
Reminder that Ashes of Creation is an open and transparent development project. As such, you will see work-in-progress art, systems, and mechanics. Leave us your thoughts on our progress in the video comments!
On Friday, June 30, 2023, we broadcasted our Ashes of Creation June Development Update live on Twitch with Steven Sharif (Creative Director) and Margaret Krohn (Director of Communications). Viewers got to see a our progress towards Freeholds. Afterwards, we shared images from our Character Art Team, and answered quite a few questions.
Freeholds are critical for guilds. Why? Because the BiS gear in the game will be crafted gear, and the only place with BiS craft tables are Freeholds which are owned by guilds.
FYI, Gear will be very important to the economy because all gear degrades over time/with usage to the point where it is permanently broken. So players will always have to have their next set of gear in the bank
So like Star Wars Galaxies, the game is going to need Players who are just professional crafters.
