smoke and sacrifice review xbox one 1

Looking to craft, fight, explore and ultimately survive in a brand new open world? Smoke and Sacrifice on Xbox One and PS4 will see you right.

Available from today on the two most powerful consoles the world has ever known – Xbox One and PS4 – Smoke and Sacrifice combines multiple elements into one adventure as you take on the role of Sachi, a young mother attempting to discover the truth behind her firstborn child and a secret underworld.

Priced up at £15.99 (although an initial launch discount sees the opening salvo fired with a £12.79 price in place), Smoke and Sacrifice on Xbox One promises to deliver a new open world in which every element is narrative driven. With multiple RPG mechanics in place, and the need to craft, fight and explore all necessary to your survival, this world won’t be an easy one to traverse – but chances are it’ll be hugely rewarding when you do.

Hand painted visuals will delight those who gaze with awe, whilst the living breathing ecosystem that plays host to Sachi’s journey will both intrigue and frighten in equal measures. Do you have what it takes to uncover multiple secrets, or will you fail Sachi and see her falling to the deadly smoke within?

To find out you’ll want to hit up your favourite digital store. In our case – as Xbox One gamers – we much prefer the Xbox Store over the PlayStation Store, but obviously those running on PS4 will do well to visit the latter.
