Ashen has players exploring a unique and mysterious world as an Ashen. There’s a touch of Dark Souls-esque feel to the combat along with the riveting setting and exploration mechanics. A cooperative multiplayer mechanic is also available which sees player either working together – or trying it alone.
Below are the main features in Ashen from the official website:
- Passive Multiplayer – While exploring and completing quests for characters, you’ll come across other players in the wilderness. You can choose to work together on a quest, tackle dungeons or go your own way. It’s up to you.
- Open-World Exploration – Ashen is filled with sweeping, hand-crafted environments waiting to be explored. From rugged coastlines to dark intricate caverns and sprawling cities from civilizations past, each region is unique and will reveal more about the lost history of the world.
- Stamina-Based Combat – Each encounter has the potential to end in disaster. Discover unique weapons and equipment during your journey which will let you develop your own play style to defeat the shadows. But knowledge of the land and patience are as valuable as any weapon in Ashen.
- The Town – In Ashen you’ll have a settlement where characters you encounter on your adventures will return to and make their home. As you complete their quests, they will expand their own dwellings and provide you with services to help you on your journey.
Ashen is set to land on the PS4, Switch and PC on both GOG and Steam on December 9, 2019.
