View author's profile

Toy Soldiers dev Signal Studios has launched sign-ups for its closed beta of Ascend: New Gods on the Xbox Live Arcade, giving players the opportunity to get involved with its unique blend of open-world RPG shenanigans and asynchronous multiplayer, with integrated SmartGlass features.

A free-to-play title for XBLA, Ascend: New Gods has you entering the world of Caos, where you can “wage war against Xbox 360 players from your mobile phone, gain power and prestige, and transfer it all to your console — anywhere, anytime.”

If you're interested in signing up for the Ascend: New Gods closed beta, you can sign up via the official website here. Ascend: New Gods will take you to a variety of landscapes and dark dungeons on your quest, with unique and interesting features promised. It'll presumably be heading to XBLA sometime this year.

I remember been excited when I saw this at E3 last year, but hearing that is is actualy free 2 play, has kind of soured it for me, but I'll give it a go.

@Defiance comments
Everyone that is accepted for the beta gets access to the PC version regardless of chosen format.
The codes for the 360 version have yet to be sent out. The beta doesn't start until tomorrow so from what I've read, we should expect codes to be sent out either later today or tomorrow.

@9 And at which point were the people who make Defiance going to announce this? They've had the beta on PS3 already. And from what I remember, it shouldve started 3 days ago.

Plus, I even contacted them via email and Twitter. No responses. They must really NOT want me to buy their game.

My mistake. 360 beta doesn't begin until the 25th. That should give me time to download the whopping 5.29GB :p

@13 While it's definitely nice when developers respond, you should take into consideration how busy the developers are right now. They are probably getting 1000's of e-mails and twitter questions per day, probably impossible to answer them all with the betas, getting them set-up, and the launch of the game in 2 weeks.

@14 Thank you for the link.

@4 It's not bad :) but it would flow better if:

"I signed up, but i was surprised that you can`t choose germany as *the country* where you live.....sorry for my bad english ;)"

OT: Time to sign up...

"To help increase your chances of being accepted, share this link with at least five of your friends and accrue referral credit!" - From registration email.

I'd rather they give people with smartglass on their mobile devices a better chance to get in than annoying my friends with referrals.

Looks like it's PvE, which is fine by me. Can't stand PvP.
