You have an opportunity to participate in building a new village from the ground up and experience first-hand what it was like to create a new settlement. As a newly appointed bailiff, you must decide what buildings to erect and what people to bring in, and you must also settle disputes between the villagers. Each building is unique and comes with its own upgrades, material and labour requirements, so you will face some difficult decisions. A bailiff's lot is not an easy one, but he can still enjoy some fun after a hard day's work. Get yourself one of the new horses available and take it for a ride, throw a few dice against seasoned players in your new local tavern, match your skills against variously skilled opponents in your combat arena or just rest at home in your own comfortably furnished house.

    While there's not much in Pribyslavitz that's worth returning to, rebuilding it and reaping the monetary benefits is a great experience.

    For those at the end, this probably isn’t going to be the most enthralling.

    From the Ashes has a great concept, but the result feels sluggish and never reaches its full potential.

    From the Ashes is a poorly-crafted good idea for a DLC.

    From the Ashes is a content that we hardly recommend to recommend for the proposed price.

    From the Ashes is superfluous, a lazy addition without any impact on the gameplay of Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

    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.

Rest assured this won't be easy and you will have to travel all over the land to get the resources, the craftsmen and the money to raise up a new settlement. If you enjoyed Skyrim: Hearthfire then you need to get your hands on From The Ashes. Expand

The place is large and makes no sense the needing of choose to build one thing or another. If you have the money you should build everything. You don't have a proper house, only a floor that you divide with random NPCs. Many things are needed in the town like a Tailor to repair your things. Fortifications like palisades around the village would make it feels like a real thing of the time.

    By the end, is a DLC not worth your money because it has many potentials that was not explored by the developers. Is a waste of money and time.

I honestly can't tell if those that left positive reviews (on SteamAn abysmal addition that the developers have the gall to call paid DLC. I honestly can't tell if those that left positive reviews (on Steam or here) actually played through it or not.

    If you think this DLC will provide some kind of sophisticated village-building mechanic, you are sorely mistaken. You have to talk to the master builder and tell him which building you want. Then (this is not a joke, seriously, this is literally how they did it in game) the master builder runs to the construction site and you have to follow him and talk to him again to confirm that you are still interested in building there. You do not decide the layout of the village or the aesthetics of buildings, it is all predefined.

    If you think that you will be able to build yourself a fine mansion, fit for a man of your station, you are again, mistaken. If you think that you can build a homely wooden hovel for yourself, let me just clarify, no you cannot build your own house. The best you can do is live at the Rathaus with the other riffraff of the town.

    If you think that you will be able to build a village that, at the very least, has the core traders/merchants (such as a tailor, butcher, cobbler, or bath), what do you know, you are still mistaken! The businesses that I just listed above are not available to be built. Let me repeat, the tailor, butcher, cobbler, and bath are not available and you cannot establish them in the town. Not to mention, you have to choose either an armor-smith or a weapon-smith and a guard house or a stable. You cannot have both and the decision is final.

    If you think you're going to get an expanded story with Theresa or some other love interest that can move in with you, then you are "correct". . . I'm just joking of course, you're still mistaken. Theresa is still blissfully unaware that the town has been built and you cannot even mention it to her. I will say that you can hire certain memorable NPCs as skilled laborers that garner extra income, such as sending Kunesh to work as a lumberjack.

    Lastly, the means of which you construct things is not at all interesting. It is literally you walking to towns, asking if they want to supply you with grain or coal. You then pay them and that's it, it's over. This DLC is just a matter of how much Groschen you have laying around and how to get more of it. If you have more than 12,000g, than rebuilding the town is a walk in the park.

    At the end of the day, I would say this DLC is worth buying at $1.00 and that's the score I'm giving it. It fails to add anything of substance to the game and is simply a desperate cash grab by the developers. Avoid it like the plague of Merhojed.

    One final note: This DLC can be improved if the developers wish to redeem themselves. Adding the remaining businesses not available, adding more judgements, introducing village raids from Cumans and bandits, and allow building walls and your own personal house would certainly help this travesty rise from the ashes.
