Launching in early 2016, Age of Ascent is a truly massive multiplayer game set in Humanity’s near future.  It features direct-piloting realtime combat on an unparalleled scale, an entirely player-driven economy, multi-device support – and it’ll even run in your web browser without plugins or installs!

We run free public alpha PvP playtests, currently every second Saturday, so please come join us! It’s free and there’s nothing to download or install; you don’t even have to register or create an account. If you want to find out what to expect, please watch the video to your right, recorded last weekend.  If you took part in the last test, please don’t hesitate to give us feedback on your experience.

Our fortnightly playtests are not the full game by any means; we’re just demonstrating and testing the server architecture, networking communications, graphics rendering and testing the essential PvP component to make sure it works for the full MMO game that’s in development.  You can find out more about the full game on our about page.

So invite your friends, come back on Saturday and have a blast!


  • Free
  • No download or install

“Age of Ascent will usher in a new era of ultra-MMOs… the first in a new generation of MMO games that break through these barriers, and create truly open worlds on a scale never before seen.”
White Paper, Microsoft
“Age of Ascent is poised to become something special, one of those games that players will point to years down the road and say, ‘Yep, that was the one that changed everything‘.”
“… something so vast, it trumps anything seen before, supporting thousands of players simultaneously in-browser.”
“Take a look at the video below to understand how much, and how deep, these devs will take us into the web, the enveloping world Age Of Ascent and how your browser will simply fade away.”
“Oh man.. look at that! Look at those particle effects just going everywhere…. Oh my god. Sorry. I need to take a second here and take a few screenshots.
“I’ve always enjoyed Illyriad’s epic scale, but this is not only larger than anything it has ever done… but larger than anything that has been done before… by anyone.”
“…nothing can prepare you for the unparalleled scale of the epic experience… some of the most exciting, adrenaline fueled PvP matchups in the world of online gaming!”
Review, xMMORPG
“… thousands of players from around the world in dogfights across a single, continuous battlezone without sharding or slowing down gameplay… grand experiment
Review, PCGamer
