Top Critic Average
Leaving my mark on the map, and contributing to the history and legacy of a town once long gone, From the Ashes adds a meaningful economic layer whose influence stretches across the entire map.
From the Ashes meshes well with the base game, and it might help you discover some overlooked side quests. The village building and management is interesting, but ultimately superficial. The conclusion feels somewhat anticlimactic.
Overall, the appeal of Kingdom Come: Deliverance – From the Ashes might heavily depend on where you are in the game. This certainly is not end-level content. It is somewhere in the middle and when played through, it flows pretty naturally as yet another set of tasks that need to be done.
An interesting experiment for a DLC. It is a flawed experience but it can still be fun. This will be quite challenging for newcomers but if you take your time with it, chances are that you will end up loving it.
From the Ashes is not necessarily a disappointment, but if you aren't a hardcore fan of the original game, it's not really a must play DLC due to the lack of truly interesting content.

From the Ashes. while not a perfect DLC, has potential. If you are a new player, it fits in great with the game. If you're a returning player in hopes of getting new content, you will be very disappointed. This was a poorly implemented DLC in my opinion, I have high hopes, however, that Warhorse Studios can bring a lot better, more engaging content to the game with future DLC's.
Those of you who are begging for a reason to load up KC:D will find something to spend a few hours on. But 'From the Ashes' will do little for anyone else. The low asking price however, takes some of the edge off of the criticism.
There's literally not reason to try out Kingdom Come: Deliverance - From the Ashes. It's pretty weak DLC that, instead of breathing new life into the core game, just adds a short, and not that engaging (or rewarding), quest line.
