THE GRAFICAL PART

In this subsection of our review, the main graphical aspects of this game are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphics settings and the quality of the development of the main visual aspects.

SUPPORTED OC AND GRAPHICS API

Ashfall Playtest is supported by Windows 10/11.

steam
 

The priority and main graphics API for Ashfall Playtest is DX11 .

A GAME

Ashfall is a post-apocalyptic MMORPG created by two gaming industry veterans that got off to a rather unconvincing closed beta stage. Over the past three days since the start of the CBT, based on Steam statistics, Ashfall has only 876 simultaneous online users. For a new game that promised to bring freshness to the genre, these numbers are disappointing.

Ashfall 2023 08 06 00 08 15 034

The plot of the game, despite the promises of the creators, is a collection of hackneyed ideas and clichés. Humanity is suffering from global cataclysms caused by global warming, and players are forced to seek salvation in the enclaves. Journey beyond the Core of Creation? It sounds like an echo of dozens of identical stories we've seen before.

Ashfall 2023 08 06 00 13 01 442

The gameplay does not offer anything new or original, and the combat system, although it claims to have a strategy, in fact, cannot offer anything that would make it stand out from other games. Crafting, character development, and talents have all been seen before. Plus, integrating with Web 3.0 and blockchain sounds like an attempt to grab the attention of the modern gamer, but how it will work in practice is completely unclear.

Ashfall 2023 08 06 00 16 10 990

Beta testing also exposed many technical problems that raise doubts about the competence of the developers. Errors, bugs and flaws indicate a lack of attention to detail and product quality.

But what about multiplayer? PvP and PvE sound tempting, but the low online on Steam shows that players are simply not interested in what Ashfall has to offer.

Ashfall 2023 08 06 00 17 15 473

The game may have potential, but the current implementation leaves a lot to be desired. Everything from the story to the gameplay feels retarded and unoriginal. With an online low of 876 on Steam, this seems like a pretty grim prognosis for the game's future. Ashfall needs some serious tweaks and changes if it wants to capture the attention of players and take its place in the market.

DIFFERENT QUALITY MODES

The minimum graphics settings in Ashfall are aimed at increasing performance by reducing the quality of textures, lighting, shadows, and object detail at a distance. Maximum settings, on the contrary, provide high quality in all these aspects, creating a more realistic and impressive visual experience, but lower performance on less powerful systems.

MSI Afterburner

 
All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality by MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment:

Our video cards were tested at resolutions of 1920x1080 , 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 at maximum graphics quality settings.

GPU TEST

Ashfall 2023 08 07 21 14 57 774

In the test of video cards, the default resolution is 1920x1080, other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also select any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected). The test is carried out on the most productive CPU in this game and is scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.
