Ashen Leak Suggests Surprise Launch Tonight [Update: Live Now on the Epic Game Store]

Another leak.

Update: Ashen is live now on the Epic Game Store.

Original Story

Ashen, an indie action-RPG developed by A44 and published by Annapurna Interactive could be gearing up for a surprise launch tonight based on yet another leak ahead of The Game Awards.

A launch trailer for Ashen was accidentally put online before getting taken down from Xbox's YouTube channel. The trailer, which was set to run during The Game Awards, ended with the words "available now" which considering tonight's timing suggests a surprise launch.

Ashen is just another in a line of leaks ahead of tonight's awards including the release of a Devil May Cry 5 demo tomorrow, exclusively on Xbox. Fair to say, Microsoft might want to double-check to make sure all of its trailers are locked tight until the actual show tonight.

Ashen was announced back in 2015 and from what we played of it, Souls-esque is actually a very accurate term to use here. The stylized art is also reminiscent of somber indie titles, but the scope is one of the larger worlds we've seen from a game this size.
