Ascend: Hand of Kul is a free-to-play action RPG with seamless single-player and multiplayer gameplay. It is entering an Open Beta phase for Xbox 360 players on September 25th at 12pm PST. To be honest, the game looks pretty cool. I had signed up for the beta under the impression that there was also a PC version, but apparently that is further down the road. Here’s some game info and a trailer for you to check out!
“Wage war for your God as a brutal Caos warrior in Ascend: Hand of Kul on a unique journey to Ascension. You will be able to play with and against other players. Destroy the spawn of the Titan, invade other players’ worlds, and tip the balance in the Crusade between the alliances. Ascend your warrior to engage in the ultimate Crusade, crossing over to battle in other worlds.”
When you Ascend a Champion it actually becomes an NPC in the game that fights on your behalf in the Crusade! You will also be able to Legacy any item from your Ascended character, which then become permanent items in your inventory and available to all future characters. This feature allows you to mix and match items, spells and weapons from different alignments and create far more powerful Caos Warriors.
There’s no official release date yet, but it is expected sometime this year. More info can be found on the official website. If you try the game out, let us know what you think!
