Return here in 4 days, 13 hours, 8 minutes, 53 seconds

We run free public alpha PvP playtests, currently every second Saturday, so please come join us! If you took part in the last test, please don’t hesitate to give us feedback on your experience!  Note that we are aware of a low frame-rate issue with nvidia’s “Optimus” laptop graphics cards – there’s nothing we can do to fix it. nvidia are looking into this now and will hopefully come up with a better fix, but there is a workaround outlined on the top part of this page.

Please do join in and share this around – 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.

It’s absolutely not the full game, by any means; we’re just demonstrating the server architecture and networking communications, and testing the basic PvP component to make sure it works for the full MMO game that we’re going to develop over the next year.

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


  • Free
  • No download or install
  • No registration required

The full game of Age of Ascent will be launching in early 2015 and you can find out more about the full game on our about page.

“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
