Confront True Darkness – Face the Reapers in Today’s New Ash of Gods

Ash of Gods content update: A quiet, long-standing peace has been broken, and the lands of Terminum are set to face horrors like no other — in the form of the Reapers, the harbingers of death, famine, plague…and the dreaded “Harvest.”  The relentless, and some say soulless, Reapers, are just one of the many challenges players will face in Ash of Gods the story-driven tactical RPG coming to PC in March 2018. Today, developer AurumDust brings you a brief overview of the “worst” three of their kind – Dorpal, Atraa, and Adna. Thes villains are far from mindless killing machines, and their story will be intertwined with yours as you explore Terminum and create a unique story in the game.

Ash of Gods is a ​turn-based RPG featuring constantly evolving storytelling with risks that truly affect gameplay, along with an extensive online PvP mode.

Depending upon a player’s decisions, no two playthroughs of the game will be the same.

Along with a constantly evolving storyline, players will be treated to a fantastic visual and aural experience, featuring stunning hand-drawn characters and environments, coupled with music from Adam Skorupa, whose previous work includes The Witcher, Bulletstorm, Painkiller, and EVE Online.
