E3: Ascend New Gods

Do watch the start of this trailer, at least, and let me know if you think it looks almost wargame like in style. I think it does.

After a bit of digging, it turns out that Signal Studios, the developers, also created “Toy Soldiers” and so this makes some sense. Microsoft describe Ascend New Gods as an “action RPG”. Action RPG seems to mean limitless dungeons and immense landscapes.

Players are Coas – a breed of warriors created to serve the will of the gods. Combat is not just against the Titans but also rival players. The goal is to esbalish yourself as important in the global conflict.

Ascend is a game that works on the Xbox 360 but also, we’re told, from your smartphone.
