Aurora44's Ashen continues to be a game I need in my life, the action RPG looking more necessary each time I see it. The following is our first proper look at it since a few-seconds-long gif sparked imaginations at around this time last year.
Yeah, Ashen was featured in Microsoft's E3 conference, but it's defo coming to PC as well. So what is it? Well it's a "3rd person action RPG about forging relationships", featuring an open world, "passive" multiplayer, big ol' beasties, high-stakes combat and "non-linear progression".
So it sounds a bit like Dark Souls meets Journey. You can see some of the not-particularly-passive-seeming multiplayer in action in the above video, which also features a friendly sky whale. Sky whales, naturally, are awesome.
There's no release date yet.
