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 for a select number of dungeons.
The world of Verra is meant 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 creates the opportunity for change in the world that can be catalyzed by the players.
The world size at launch is 1200 square kilometers which include water and land content. The land content is expected to be 480 square kilometers. There are also up to 100 square kilometers that may also be taken up by the underrealm.
