The World of Verra
Ashes of Creation aims to deliver a truly seamless open-world experience. This means there will not be a loading time or loading screens between zones and regions on the world map. Instancing is only intended to exist for a select number of dungeons.
The world of Verra is intended to feel like a realistic ever-changing world as a result of the choices of the players that occupy each world server. The Node system is intended to ensure the opportunity for change in the world can be catalyzed by the players.
The world size at launch is 480 square kilometers which includes water and land content. There is also up to 100 square kilometers that may also be taken up by the underrealm.
