Ascend: New Gods is a huge single-player RPG that also has an important online component and puts the player in control of a Caos (a giant warrior). The game includes many staples of the RPG genre, including a vast land filled with dungeons, a large variety of enemies that come in many shapes and sizes and plenty of loot to collect. What sets the game apart is its multiplayer, which allows a player to see other players progressing through their own separate world. While players can’t effect each other directly, they will be able to use their powers to send either help or hindrance into each others’ worlds.
Once released, Ascend will be free-to-play. You can find out more from our E3 preview here.
