Ashes of Creation is an upcoming MMO that has caught my eye, it is meant to be released towards the end of 2019, so it is far away from being finished. Ashes of Creation Apocalypse Beta is a standalone prequel of Ashes of Creation that we will be able to play from December 18 and onwards up till launch. It is used as a testing ground for new systems and to test network stability etc. If you are interested in playing Apocalypse open Beta you can register https://accounts.ashesofcreation.com/users/register. You can download the game via this link https://ashesofcreation.com/launcher/latest. I do like the game because the combat system is very similar to ESO, fast paced action combat. And I am also looking forward to play Ashes of Creation alongside Elder Scrolls Online.

I also plan to create content similar to what I do in ESO for Ashes of Creation. I am going to live stream the beta on https://www.twitch.tv/alcasthq if you want to see me play the game if you need some more pointers whether the game is something for you or not.
Ashes of Creation Apocalypse will test various different game modes, such as Battle Royale, Castle Sieges (100 vs 100), Horde Mode and open World Exploration. To take a look at their schedule, here you can see the dates when what will be tested, the date of certain things might change over time if they run into some difficulties, but up till now they have always been ahead of schedule, so lets hope it will stay like this.
The Dates are not super accurate, if I recall correctly the Castle Sieges are meant to start at the end of December, but it should help getting an idea of what to expect approximately when. The picture is from Ashes of Creation Discord.
