Ascend: Hand of Kul is a free-to-play multiplayer/singleplayer hybrid title in which you wage war as warrior chosen by your god to head on the road to ascension. In a similar manner to the Souls series, Ascend: Hand of Kul allows you to invade other players games in order to aid the fight or wreak havoc. The single and multiplayer experience is reportedly seamless as you engage on your journey to ascension through Ascend: Hand of Kull’s fast-paced action RPG gameplay.

Ascend: Hand of Kul allows for several different types of customization. These include armor, weapons, and appearance.

The game features parallel multiplayer, wherein the player goes about his or her own single-player adventure, but can see other players going about their single-player adventures at the same time.The player cannot work together as in traditional co-op modes, but can purchase and send “blessings” and “curses” to one another.Curses summon monsters into the targeted players realm and players are rewarded if their target is defeated.Blessings send buffs to targeted players. It also allows for connectivity between Xbox 360 and mobile via Smartglass. Smartglass integration comes in the form of showing the map of the dungeon that the player is in, as well as showing any enemy caos’ stats that they are fighting.
