Set in a fallen, ever-changing fantasy realms swith ruins, beasts, and cities, Ashes of Creation will have players "rebuild, repopulate and rediscover this uncharted realm.
As one of the most anticipated upcoming MMOs, the results of this one month fundraiser and the amount of support, Ashes of Creation has risen to become the most funded MMO on Kickstarter to date. In fact, so many people wanted to share their interest in the game that Sharif released this statement:
Because of the high amount of members that requested alternate payment methods that Kickstarter did not offer, I have decided that during the month of June I will extend our crowdsourcing through our website for those of you who were unable to purchase packages through Kickstarter. All backers from Kickstarter will benefit from this additional month of funding with some pretty awesome backer goals and rewards, which we will be releasing today. We will have the ability for Kickstarter pledges to be upgraded as well.
The statement also confirms the biggest question of all: when are they releasing this game? It is not yet certain what Intrepid Studios will do with the extra funds, but they did mention some big announcements in the coming weeks. To stay updated go to their website for day-to-day information.
