Ashes: Dead Man Walking (Released!)

In the wasteland, death comes fast and it comes easy. It doesn't take much: overconfidence, a moments inattention or just a little bit of bad luck. Carpets of parched bones speak to this brutal truth.

You reflect on this thought as you fade in and out of consciousness, lungs half filled with a mixture of brackish ditch slime and your own blood. It only took a second. A moment where you looked right instead of left, and then some bandits bullet was embedded deep in your chest. You didn't even have the strength to fight them off as they stripped your pockets, stole your weapons and rode off on your bike.

But you're harder to kill than most people. And you're going to pull yourself out of that ditch, back onto your feet, and set about finding those bastards.

You are The Scav.

You are a ...



(Shout out to Vostyok for the amazing title screen!)



Ashes: Dead Man Walking

Ashes: DMW is an expansion campaign ( or dlc, as the kids call it these days), for Vostyoks Ashes 2063. You reprise your role as the Scav, hunting the wasteland for those who tried to kill you.

DMW was developed with the approval of Vostyok, who was very helpful throughout the entire process.

It Features:
-3 new levels of mutant-blasting, vent-crawling, radiation-sickness-getting action.
-1 new town map.
-5 New tracks by PRIMEVAL, the very same gentleman who made the awesome Ashes 2063 Soundtrack.. Note: New tracks begin on map 3
-The same Ashes gameplay you all know and love

Soon friend. Soon.

Not deliberately, but maybe unconsciously :P

There are a handful of places in the mod that do draw inspiration from real life and fictional locales. Once people play this, it'll be interesting to see if anyone is able to pick them out.

Thanks for the interest folks.

Release is very close.
All that's left is a bit of light script work and some game balance stuff. Geometry is 99% done, excluding some lighting tweaks and general polish.

I might put out a call for playtesters. Keep an eye on this thread if you're interested, details will follow if I decide to go that route.

Here's one last pair of shots:

I mean, I will do a playthrough on this on my YT channel, but I think you should get, aside from Vostyok some people, that helped making Ashes reality, but that's just me.

I helped Vostyok big time, because he included me as a playtester! That means you may consider adding me as well. No bragging here! Because i'm absolutely fall in love with Ashes and any related mod. Just ring me when ready!

So the final version is coming together.

If anyone else is interested in doing some playtesting, please let me know. I'll be sending PMs either tomorrow or Friday.

If you don't get picked, please don't take it personally :( . I want to keep it a very small group.
