  • Ashen Released on Epic Games Store and Xbox

    Ashen Released on Epic Games Store and Xbox

    Try to stick with me on this one. Ashen was released on December 7, 2018 for the Xbox One and PC via the Epic Games Store.

It "may" also be a timed exclusive for the Epic Games Store, which means it will come to other digital retailers on the PC at some point. Why are we not sure? Because every publisher and developer are being cheeky as hell when it comes to th...
