Vote Now for May 2019's TA Playlist Game

By Mark Delaney,
I admit, as the sole person coming up with these polls each month, I definitely swayed this one toward a theme very dear to my interests lately, but I think you'll like it too. It's co-op month, and every game is in Game Pass! Pick your favorite, the one in your backlog, or the one you want to gush (or rant) about. We'll post the results in one week!



Ashen is an open world co-op action RPG about a wanderer in search of a place to call home. As you adventure through Ashen, you'll occasionally encounter other players in a massive open world, akin to the passive multiplayer of Journey. It's up to you to decide how to deal with them - fight together against evil, invite them into your party or simply ignore them.
