Fire Emblem: Three Houses was one of the best tactical RPGs we got to play in 2019, and offering players four different routes to go through meant that there was a ton of content to dig into. Intelligent Systems is looking to extend your playtime of this game even further by releasing the first story expansion, titled Cindered Shadows.
This isn’t just some new quest that you can bring your students on; it introduces an entire fourth House to Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and there’s a lot of new stuff to dive into. Here’s everything you need to know about the Cindered Shadows DLC.
The Ashen Wolves
As mentioned previously, this DLC will introduce a fourth House called the Ashen Wolves. It’s not exactly a full House, as it only contains four new students at the moment.
From what we’ve learned from the reveal trailer, these four students have been basically living in the basement of Garreg Mach Monastery for years. There’s a whole settlement down there, full of people who have never seen the surface, and it really raises the question of how they’ve survived all this time, and why Byleth and gang never saw them when they ventured into the basement.
The Ashen Wolves are Yuri, Constance, Balthus, and Happi. All four characters will be playable in Cindered Shadows.
