Ascend: Hand of Kul Wages War

Ascend: Hand of Kul Wages War

How will your decisions change the course of the Crusade?

Written by Lexley Ford (Lexual) on 17 July 13 at 14:57

Signal Studios have released a new trailer for their upcoming free-to-play title Ascend: Hand of Kul, that delves into some of the finer points of the game's never ending online combat, or Crusade. While serving your chosen god, other players will be encountered in spirit form and you can choose to help or hinder them. This can be done by sending useful blessings to allies or banishing creatures into the world of your enemies.

For those that are eagerly awaiting this title, it may be worth remembering that by purchasing any two titles from this year's Summer of Arcade line-up, you will receive a free “Souls Pack” worth 800 MSP for use when Ascend:Hand of Kul launches later this year.

Well that certainly sounds interesting, it seems to be taking a leaf from Dark Souls.

Really enjoying what I've played of the beta. Just wish I had more time to put into it before they perform the reset!

So can you play real co-op in this game?
Reborn Insanity - For those of you on Steam, I highly suggest playing Dirty Bomb. It's one of the best F2P games out there IMO.

Looks pretty good and seems really interesting for a f2p. Still waiting on more news about the (WP) version.
Does this smell like chloroform to you?

Definitely excited to try this game out!
Is the beta closed now? And I take it theres no specific release date or month?

Also, does anyone know anything about the other upcoming F2P title World Series: Full House Poker? And a loose release date for that?
