During Microsoft’s E3 2017 E3 media briefing, a new trailer was shown for Ashen, an upcoming Xbox One exclusive role-playing game that seems heavily influenced by titles like Dark Souls.
The trailer showed off intense battles, exploration and massive enemies. All of it was rendered in a unique art style that’s semi-polygonal and less detailed than a lot of modern games. It also showed multiple adventurers fighting together, suggesting that co-op will be important to the game.
Ashen was first announced during Microsoft’s 2015 E3 media briefing. During that reveal, developer Aurora44 spoke of a game with a huge open world and multiplayer elements. It was originally intended for a 2016 release date. A new date has not been announced.
