Microsoft Studios have teased a sampling of the kinds of weapons players will be able to find in their upcoming action RPG Ascend: Hand of Kul
. Of course, the weapons that you will ultimately be able to wield are entirely dictated by the in-game God that you choose to serve:
As shown above, the weapons will include the usual hacking, stabbing, or bashing varieties. Obviously, the better weapons give a greater chance of success in combat and help the player to obtain "Crusade" points when their characters Ascend. To get your greasy mitts on better weapons, simply level up. Some weapons are more common than others, with the more customisable weapons able to hold up to three rune slots, allowing an increase to the player's speed, might, or magic attributes.Ascend: Hand of Kul
is expected sometime later this year for XBLA.
