Ascend: Hand of Kul is a free-to-play multiplayer action RPG developed by Signal Studios. The game has been in closed beta over the last few months but is now ready for the masses this coming Wednesday, September 25.
Signal Studios, which previously worked on the Toy Soldiers franchise, is hoping to shed the stigma that is attached to many F2P games by offering a free game that has zero premium content. Instead, there are weekly and community challenges to entice players to come back consistently to further try to balance the powers between the three alignments: Darkness, Void and Light.
Players will quickly realize that even though they are playing a single-player story they are not alone in this universe. Having created a world in which players can seamlessly go from a single to a multiplayer experience, Signal Studios is hoping to attract the attention of players who are drawn to the MMO action-adventure genre.
Look for Ascend: Hand of Kul this coming Wednesday and also be on the lookout for community announcements from Signal Studios, as it’ll be posting ways in which players can unlock special rewards for competing in various challenges.
