Ascend: New Gods, the upcoming Xbox Live Arcade action game that takes cues from games like God of War and Shadow of the Colossus, is taking beta applications.

The game is developed by Signal Studios, which is best known for its previous Arcade title, Toy Soldiers. Ascend is much different from Toy Soldiers, but what little has been shown looks promising.
