During their March Update, Ashes of Creation revealed the Character Creation for the upcoming Alpha 2 test. The Character Creation is a far leap from the Alpha 1 Character Creation with improvements on every front. Ashes of Creation stated that there are plans to improve it even more before launch.

Players in the Ashes of Creation Alpha 2 phase will be able to customize many options on their characters. This includes options such as body type, hair, scarring, Tattoos, and more. The Character Creator has the option to use sliders, detailed color pallets, and more. The Creator also has an interactive “drag and move” system similar to Black Desert Online. In the video, they showed off two of the game’s races: The Vek Orc and the Kaelar Humans. There will be more races added to the character creation soon!

Steven Shariff again confirmed that they would be opening up Ashes of Creation’s Character Creation prior to Launch. This will allow players to be able to create their character prior to launch. The Character Creation will also be used to create NPC to hire in the game’s Freehold System. The Developers will also use it to create NPC out in the world of Ashes of Creation.

Ashes of Creation also gave a Studio Update during the March Development Update stating that hiring was going well. They have hired 20 New Department heads to help develop alongside the current staff. Steven Shariff mentioned that they are still looking for more people to work on Ashes of Creation. They would like to have around 200 staff members by the end of the year.

We will have more on Ashes of Creation news and the upcoming Alpha 2 test soon! As a reminder, Alpha 2 is set to release in Q3 of 2024.
