$1,750,000 Stretch Goal Unlocked! With over 10K backers...

Posted by Steven Sharif (Collaborator)

My fellow Ashes of Creation lovers,

We have unlocked the Underrealm territories!!!

The team is ecstatic! We have sooo many cool ideas that we are getting to work on with this vast underground area.


The Underrealm will be a rich environment where bioluminescence abounds in the fauna and flora that exist here.  These deep caverns and underground valleys will provide new destinations for civilization to develop.  Bringing the node system into the depths of the world, may awaken darker creatures than the surface. Be careful...

But enough about deep darkness! Let's talk about the light!

Today we debut one of the unique racial skins from our $1k package.

Racial Skin (Angelic)
Racial Skin (Angelic)

Once you step foot into this world, it will be known that you have been destined to serve as an agent of the light. This racial skin will transform your appearance into that of a herald of the Gods.

The demonic racial skin will be released next week :)

From everyone at Intrepid Studios, thank you all for your unbelievable support and for helping to spread the word about Ashes of Creation.

With love,


PS Let's go!!! :)

      Love the skin. There is no way I can back at that price range. Founder was even pushing my budget. Will there be other racial skins available in-game, or as rewards? I'm an admin on the wiki at Fandom and I am looking for details! Really curious about how the costumes will work too.

      How about a utility for Mage class to walk & breathe underwater inside a magic bubble/barrier[shareable buff(?)] ? Or Underwater treasures? Skills?

      Hope to see the game evolved, just hope that you gonna do your best to make this comfortable to play and dont be lost with all the responsabilities / possibilities like a Black Desert Online exemple :)

      @Kyle Pattison I feel the exact same way. I had to go all in with the 1000.

      Congrats Intrepid!

      I'll be looking forward to the underrealm and the angel/demon skin. I am not an expert in this field like you all but I cannot wait to see what this game will hold.

      The Alpha bug testing will be hard work and can't wait to help you guys with it.

      Please dont let this be one of those game where it's over hype to the point that it make the game feel average when it come out.

    14. Fury Bladeborne on

      Perhaps the next poster will make a statement that makes logical sense =)

    15. Abdullah Fahad Al-Mowiyjed on

      People who backed you with $1000 are expecting too much from you, they want to support you, not for the worthless rewards. Please considerate. Don't be such disappointment.

    16. Abdullah Fahad Al-Mowiyjed on

      Or optional holy walking animation(floating?) during non combatant.

    17. Abdullah Fahad Al-Mowiyjed on

      No customization? or optional halo ring either on back or head with different size, colors(white, yellow and black at least) and shapes? As well as for the wings. Or maybe, light aura during non combatant mode or while idling?

    18. Crymoar on

      Sounds incredible!

    19. Miry-chan on

      Ooooooh ♡♡

      I am actually rather impressed on the size of the team :) I would love to see on your site some behind the scenes workflow stuff .... game dev related stuff maya/blender/max, 3d-coat/Substance zBrush etc.... just the overall coolness of the actual work that it takes to tackle a job at your level :) (I am faaaaar from being able to do something at this scale.)

    25. Maxeren on

      Well they said "seasoned veterans".. so im going to hold them to it :D

    26. Joshua Johnson

      Super excited about he stretch goals but are you going to be really able to add so much more content to the game? I'm just worried about possibly trying to add too much to your production schedule.

    27. Ceivent on
