Century: Age of Ashes is an upcoming, free-to-play game from developer Playwing Limited where players can ride dragons and take to the sky to battle one another in intense duels. This game was first announced at the 2020 Game Awards Show and has held two betas. The official release date has been announced as November 18 of 2021 alongside a new trailer.
Playwing Limited has revealed that over 200,000 players took part in the betas and used their feedback to finalize the game. They also announced that a new game mode, called Spoils of War which will have its own map, would launch alongside the final game. It primarily offers 3v3 and 6v6 game modes as well as unique classes with their special abilities. These include:
- Skeldin Windguard
- It is said that seeing them in nature brings good fortune. They rescue the brave in the darkest hours.
- NAERDOR PHANTOM
- A stealthy and terrifying creature. Those whom she spares eternally fall into madness.
- SVARD MARAUDER
- The ultimate alpha predator, capable of smelling the scent of blood from the top of the mountains where it resides.
Of course, the main appeal is the dragons that make up the premise of the game. Players can unlock and collect new dragons as well as customize them and their riders. Century: Age of Ashes allows players to hatch dragon eggs to get new rides. One of the most requested features to be added were baby dragons and Playwing Limited listened to the fans by adding them in the final release. They haven't said exactly what role they will play.
