Join us for a 30 min multi-player playtest on Saturday, 29th of August, 2020

We’re running a public, open Alpha playtest of Age of Ascent (AoA) on the 29th of August at 1900 UTC. That’s 8pm in the UK, and 2pm Central US time.

AoA PVP Combat 29Aug2020

The playtest will run for half an hour only.

To reserve your place ahead of time, sign your pilot up!

Please come back on the 29th to the Age of Ascent portal and you will be admitted to the playtest. You can add to Google Calendar or download .ics event if you want a calendar reminder.

We’re testing the PvP combat module again - but with the new technology base and our awesome new visual style! Everyone will be in the same ship loadout, and it’s everyone for themselves!

Other modules of the game such as trade and industry, mining and mission running will be in other playtests later this year.

After the playtest has finished, please do come back to this thread to give us your feedback and comments!
