The developers at Intrepid Studios have released a new dev diary for Ashes Of Creation, showing off their creation of a horse in the game. The company released a new blog and a video talking about the creation of the animal in the game and how they got to where it is. It actually looks pretty cool to us, especially with the Unreal Engine. Enjoy!
In Ashes of Creation, the horse represents one of the first and fundamental animals in the animal husbandry profession. Players can expect to find a wide variety of horse species existing in both domesticated form from stable merchants, as well as in the wild with more exotic features and traits. Many animals that can be tamed and bred through the animal husbandry profession can be found in herds across the lands of Verra. These herds represent a gatherable resource, of sorts, that masters of the animal husbandry profession may then use to discover lesser-known species variants with untold powers and abilities. Mounts play a large role in Ashes of Creation, and animals like the horse are an early gateway into the unlimited possibilities that await those skilled in the arts of husbandry.
