Independent game developer and publisher Playwing is thrilled to announce that dragon riders can take to the skies today in Century: Age of Ashes, their free-to-play multiplayer arena shooter set in a dark fantasy world! Century: Age of Ashes unleashes today on Steam, with three competitive game modes, and will follow shortly on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10/11 and consoles in 2022.
Century: Age of Ashes invites players to become legendary dragon riders and rule the skies with their friends in this competitive Free-to-Play team-based shooter where skill and strategy are the only things that separate victors from the fallen. Master a growing roster of classes and dragons, compete in fast-paced 3v3 and 6v6 game modes, gain experience through fights and special challenges, unlock hundreds of epic customizations, and grow baby dragons into fearsome beasts to ride into battle.
“After two successful public betas that allowed us to gather precious feedback from our players, we’re proud to release Century: Age of Ashes,” said Pascal Barret, Playwing Bordeaux Art Director, and Studio Manager. “We’re so excited to see fans take to the skies and experience intense dragon to dragon skill-based combat. We promise you, this is only the beginning!”
“Our launch marks the debut of our “Season 0” with a rolling roadmap of live events and updates. Every month, players will have the opportunity to take part in two main events; each with its own set of rules and themed rewards. These events will also serve as testbeds for potential permanent features, and will be key to the launch of our competitive Season 1 later in 2022,” continues Barret. “On top of live events, we will roll out regular tentpole updates to introduce core features to the game. For example, we’re working on a fourth Rider class and Dragon species, new maps, and a PvE mode. We can’t put a date on these updates yet, but there’ll be plenty more to come so keep your eyes peeled.”
As part of the launch, the Playwing team is also celebrating with a festive event this December, revolving around a limited-time Free For All game mode, a themed variant of our Harbour map, and three new Dragons to add to your roster.
Century: Age of Ashes has been announced for PS4, PS5, Xbox One S/X, Xbox Series S/X in 2022, and will follow on mobile platforms later in development. At launch, Century: Age of Ashes is supported in English, German, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, French, and Japanese.
