Age of Ascent (AoA) is a great looking new space-based sandbox MMO, that is so big, that they’re planning on breaking EVE Online’s world record (4070 concurrent pilots fighting) by staging the largest PvP battle ever seen.
As if that wasn’t enough, they’re planning on beating EVE Onlines record with the battle taking place in a single, continuous unsharded battlezone, all in real time (EVE uses time dilation). If Age of Ascent manages to pull it off, this will be the MMO equivalent of beating an opponent blindfolded, with your arms tied behind your back, while balancing a tea-cup on your head.
The Alpha test will be for the PvP component only, but the devs promise that the full game will include exploration (in a map of our real galaxy), a completely player-driven economy, PvE missions, modular ship designs, space station construction and management, and all the alliance organisational tools you’ll need.
To top thing off, although the game looks pretty spectacular, it will play on any browser (Other than Safari), and doesn’t require the installation of any game data or plug-ins. All you have to do is turn up at the website on March the 14th, where you’ll be assigned a side, jump straight in and take part in a world record breaking battle!
