April 7, 2022 / Developer AYGames is excited to announce the console launch and DLC release for Deck of Ashes! Coming April 21, Deck of Ashes: Complete Edition will be available on Playstation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch for the first time! A new DLC, called “Tome of Dimensions,” and game bundles will also be available on Steam, where the game first debuted in 2020. The base game + DLC bundle for consoles will retail for $24.99, while the DLC alone will retail on Steam for $4.99, each with a 10% launch discount.

A mashup of card battlers like Slay the Spire and Darkest Dungeon, Deck of Ashes challenges players to build creative decks to survive and take down enemies. Lead a group of rugged antiheros through a hellish fantasy world decimated by the Ash Curse, a plague that unleashed monsters and other mutations upon the land. Deck management is key, and every choice a player makes can strengthen their odds in battle or make things significantly more tricky. Find resources and upgrade items to further bolster HP and attack power. Deck of Ashes’ roguelike element means it's especially vital to keep an eye on health–if the player dies, only the help of dark magic can prevent permadeath.



In addition to the base game, players can experience a new Deck of Ashes adventure with “Tome of Dimensions,” a DLC featuring a brand new character, Sibyl the Dark Soul. Sibyl is a lonely character looking to bring her race back from extinction. Use Sibyl’s Deadly Shot ability to deal critical hits with different arrowheads. She can also strengthen her power by resurrecting fallen enemies in the form of skeletons. Finally, Sibyl brings two new effects to assist in battle, Fear and Hysteria.



Check out Deck of Ashes and its new DLC when the game launches on Steam, Xbox, Playstation, and Nintendo Switch on April 21. See the official website for more info or join the community on Discord! Review codes will be available upon request!
