Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I download the game?

The game is still in development and, therefore, not available for download.

When will the game be finished?

Since we are a team of volunteers doing this in our free time, we cannot give you an estimate beyond "as soon as we can get it done".

How do I get alpha/beta?

The game is not yet in any public alpha or beta stages.

How will we progress through the skill system?

As the player uses skills they will gain experience dependent on the action taken to the respective skill.

How will the leveling work? Can you expand more than "It will be a grinding style level system", and let us know how effective quests will be?

Quests will grant experience and rewards in 5 tiers dependent on the floor they are on. They will be faster than grinding mobs but not so much that mob grinding is nonviable.

What's the guild member limit?

For now - undecided.

Where is Alfheim?

In Alfheim.

Is this really SAO?

No, this is Age of Aincrad.

Where can I get a game key?

The alpha and beta stages of Age of Aincrad have not started yet. The alpha stage will consist of finding bugs and fixing initial problems in the game, probably having the first 2 or 3 floors done. The beta stage will have more open slots for testers and will consist of a maximum of 5 floors. The only way to gain alpha keys are giveaways and contests held during Age of Aincrad Livestreams on Twitch. There are no other ways of gaining access to the test phases for now.

Will there be a dual wield skill?

Yes.

Will the Oculus Rift be compatible with the game?

Not certain, depends how well it works with third person, but we would like to implement it.

How much does/will the game cost?

We want it to be Free 2 Play, however it all comes down to our budget, and if we can sustain our servers.

Where are the developers from?

The majority of members are located in the US, the rest are from many different countries.

Where is the game being developed?

The game development is located in the UK for now.

Where will the servers be available?

Yet again depends on our funding, how far we can expand. We would like to see a server each in Europe, US and Asia.
