The beautiful Souls-like title comes to other consoles later this year.
Annapurna Interactive and indie development studio Aurora44 released their Souls-like title Ashen late last year for PC and the Xbox One (where it also released on Game Pass day and date), and it received widespread acclaim for its beautiful visuals and art style, its compelling world design, and its tight, solid combat.
Back then, focused on their Xbox One/PC launch, the developers didn’t have any plans to bring the game to any systems- but that’s changed now. Publishers Annapurna Interactive recently uploaded an accolades trailer for Ashen, highlighting some of the praise the game received from critics at launch. At the very end of the trailer, they also confirm that it’ll be coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch (as well as GOG.com and Steam for PC players after its year-long exclusivity to the Epic Games Store) on December 9th this year.
In our review of Ashen, we opined that the game “displays an excellent understanding of what makes the Soulslike genre tick, and implements those borrowed ideas with great aplomb”, rewarding it a score of 8/10. Read our full review through here.
