Legendary Star Studio, a team with extensive experience in the FPS and RPG gameplay genres, has announced Ashfall, a new post-apocalyptic adventure shooter MMORPG set to release in 2023 for PC, mobile (including both Android and iOS devices), and consoles. At the Tokyo Game Show 2022, Ashfall made its debut with an explosive trailer. It came after an in-depth deep dive into its gameplay in a presentation during the IGN Showcase live stream, giving gamers all over the world an in-depth first look at Ashfall.
Assume roles as Wanderers and soldiers to explore the post-apocalyptic wasteland in Ashfall
As humanity's greatest creation once turned against them, Ashfall takes place in a post-apocalyptic world scorched by nuclear war. The war was brought on by a vast artificial intelligence that betrayed humanity and attempted to exterminate all life on Earth except the robots. Humanity, on the other hand, survived, and the last survivors established pockets of civilization among the ruins of their former glory.
Natural resources are depleting, and the last survivors of humanity compete for resources. But all is not lost, as rumors of the Core of Creation, which may be capable of healing the shattered land, continue to circulate. Wanderers, soldiers, and explorers are tasked with leaving the safety of their Vault and exploring dangerous lands in search of mankind's salvation.
Rebuild civilization to reclaim the wasteland and use team tactics to defeat enemies
Ashfall is an upcoming third-person adventure shooter for mobile devices. To defeat enemies, it emphasizes the use of cover and team tactics. The goal of the game is to rebuild civilization and reclaim the wasteland, but this will be a difficult task. Not only is the land dangerous to explore, but many enemies, such as bands of raiders, murderous war machines, and packs of mutated animals, now live in the ruins of society.
Combat is just one facet of Ashfall. A vast world awaits exploration, full of loot to be discovered and secrets to learn about the previous society. Players can complete a variety of quests. There are also interesting NPCs who live in Ashfall and are waiting to be met.
Create your characters and play Ashfall in both single and multiplayer mode on its release on mobile
The player in Ashfall creates their Wanderer from a plethora of options in the character creation mode. It is then followed by arming them with a slew of futuristic weapons and gear that they will need for the trials ahead. There are numerous possible character builds that players can tailor to their preferred gameplay style.
Players can also customize powerful equipment salvaged from other players to gain a competitive advantage. The player uses cover and the environment to their advantage as they face off against a variety of different foes in the combat.
The most powerful of these can be faced in tense boss battles. These battles range from giant beasts to elite solo enemies with abilities similar to the player's own. Fortunately, Ashfall includes both single and multiplayer modes, so players will not have to face these challenges alone. This enables groups of friends to explore the wasteland and face the challenges as a group.
Ashfall's creators are huge fans of post-apocalyptic games, particularly the Fallout series, and were inspired by some of the genre's biggest names. With Ashfall, the team was able to add an Eastern flavor to the game's aesthetics. Eastern imagery is frequently associated with cyberpunk and is uncommon in post-apocalyptic fiction. Ashfall has a unique opportunity to create something new in the post-apocalyptic genre while remaining familiar.
The developers have gone to great lengths to create a visually stunning world to help bring the wasteland and its inhabitants to life. Realistic weather effects, motion-captured actors for character animations, realistic glass-shattering effects, and advanced lighting and reflections are all included in the game.
Ashfall’s music features loneliness and danger of the end of civilization while also stirring when adventure arises
To be truly immersive, Ashfall's wasteland must also sound the part. Ashfall's music must evoke the loneliness and danger of the end of civilization while also stirring when adventure presents itself. To that end, Ashfall has assembled a band of world-class musicians, including Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer (Dune, Dunkirk, No Time to Die, Gladiator), Inon Zur (Fallout 3, Fallout 4, Fallout: New Vegas, Dragon Age Origins), and Steve Mazzaro (Fallout 3, Fallout 4, Fallout: New Vegas, Dragon Age Origins) (No Time to Die, Army of Thieves, The Amazing Spider-Man 2). This team has an impressive pedigree. Few lineups are better suited to bringing Ashfall's world to life than this one.
Legendary Star Studios gave the world its first taste of Ashfall at the Tokyo Game Show 2022, but it won't be the last. The team is planning multiple betas to allow players to shape the world of Ashfall before it is released on both PC and mobile platforms. Those who want to be among the first to experience Ashfall's mysteries should add the game to their Steam wishlist. They can also stay up to date on Ashfall by following the game's official social media channels and being notified when it finally launches.
