The Wonders Of Ashen Come To Xbox One

Australian developer Aurora44 took the stage during Microsoft's ID@Xbox showcase segment of its press conference to debut Ashen.

The game's demo showed off two explorers in a lush but lonely landscape. Opening a tomb-like underground vault, the pair get more than they bargained for.

Skeletal beings of different sizes come to life and attack the explorers. According to the demo, their adventure isn't over, however. 

Back outside, we see one of the explorers sitting atop a sweeping mountain summit. Above it hovers a massive whale-like animal.

Aurora44 says that choice will be a big factor in Ashen, forcing the player to decide who to trust in the world.

Ashen comes out on Xbox One first.
