The lights are on
Update: You can now watch the trailer for this newly announced title from Signal Studios.
Original Story: Signal Studios, the team the Xbox Live Arcade game Toy Soldiers, is moving out of the strategy genre and into violent action-combat.
The announcement trailer for Ascend: New Gods showed a bulky red soldier with a skull mask using a scythe to violently destroy enemies. Along with the smaller guys, there was also a large ogre-type enemy that Mr. Scythe-skull-mask was able to climb and kill by flying into its face, scythe extended.
As the trailer closed out, red light engulfed Mr. Scythe-skull-mask as he ascended toward the sky from the shoulder of the dead ogre.
Ascend: New Gods is set for a 2013 release.

It looks like a lot of fun. I want to see more about it.
this REALLY doesn't appeal to me
This was really bad...
i dont know about this...
Looked pretty interesting for an arcade game.
There has to be more depth than what they showed. The same studio that built Toy Soldiers wouldn't just have a hack n' slash game.
I loved the Toy Soldiers games so I am psyched for how the developers create an action combat game.
Interesting to see how it will turn out.
I just hope to God that it's not a God of War clone.
I would like to know more.
Hmmm... I like the armor he is wearing. I would need more details on this game before I make any sort of decision on it.
My interest is piqued.
