In their latest live stream on January 18th, Intrepid showcased pre-recorded footage of both a prototype under-realm environment which is present in their ongoing Alpha Zero game build as well as a new Dunir themed dungeon environment which they are working to add to the game world. I've embedded links to the Twitch recording, each starting at the time-stamp when the relevant dungeon was shown. It's definitely worth taking a look, the new environments are beautiful.
The underrealm video showcased both environmental footage as well as some new crystalline feline predators which dwell in these caverns. Unsurprisingly, the colorful bioluminesence of the underrealm areas really showcases Ashes' high fantasy color palette and makes the most of Unreal 4s potential for gorgeous lighting.
The Dunir dungeon showed some new art assets which have been integrated into the game engine and also reinforced the impressive way that Intrepid is using the z-axis to provide additional depth and a sense of scale to their locations in game.
