  • 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 available now on PC via the Epic Games Store and Xbox One. The game hacks and slashes its way onto Steam, GOG, PS4, and Switch on December 9. Will you be buying the game now that it’s available on more platforms?
