I’m a voracious Souls player. From multiple playthroughs of the Dark Souls trilogy to games like The Surge and Nioh, I can’t get enough of moody exploration and tough boss fights.
Ashen, a new Souls-like published by Annapurna Interactive, released last week on the Epic store and Xbox One, and while it doesn’t reinvent the wheel, its small refinements have made for a memorable journey thus far.

Ashen, a beautiful survival game we first wrote about in 2014, is finally nearing the finish line. It was at Microsoft's E3 presser earlier today, and will be out later this year. Here's a trailer.
Ashen sure looks pretty. And Ico-inspiried. It's "an action RPG about a wanderer in search of a place to call home." Also the world has no sun. Bummer. Damn, though, that art. It's coming to Xbox One and PC.
