New Xbox One/PC Souls-Like Game Ashen Is Out Now, Free With Game Pass
Go on a dark journey.
Ashen is now available for download. The Xbox console exclusive is a part of Game Pass, so members can download the indie title for free.
First announced at E3 2015, no news for the game came out until its E3 2017 trailer. We saw the game at E3 2018 and enjoyed our time with it. The game's developers, A44, promised the game would release prior to the end of 2018, but with only a few weeks left in the year, many thought the game might be delayed to 2019. Instead, it's out now, and quite good, as you can read about in our Ashen review.
The indie action RPG takes inspiration from both Dark Souls and Journey to create a challenging combat experience that's also relationship driven. Fans of Soulsborne games will feel right at home with Ashen's stamina-focused combat, and the in-game world is inhabited by NPCs and players alike in a shared world, much like Journey.

You can commune with other players nonverbally in Ashen to get to out-of-reach areas and explore the world, as well as work together to take on the game's difficult bosses. The launch of Ashen adds another console exclusive to Xbox One's game library in a year that didn't see all that many. The title is X-enhanced for Xbox One.
