Ashen has a cool tackle action-RPG multiplayer
Ashen, an upcoming action-RPG from Aurora44 and Annapurna Interactive, has an intriguing tackle “passive” multiplayer. Whilst you’re out adventuring, you may stumble upon one other participant — however they will seem to you as a related NPC no matter that participant’s precise gear or customization decisions.
“We actually need gamers to deal with the personalities and tales of those quest givers,” famous the studio on this narrated footage from gamescom. “When there is not any multiplayer connection to be discovered, an AI truly takes over these quest givers and the expertise stays the identical.”
That is my first time seeing Ashen since final 12 months and it appears noticeably extra refined, simply as I might hoped. Different takeaways: it is satisfying as hell to see footage of a Souls-like sport the place the participant has huge well being and stamina bars, and the flexibility to throw a spear to teleport appears to be like dope.
Ashen is deliberate for PC and Xbox One this 12 months. I am planning to test it out this weekend at PAX.
