This summer, Ascension fans who love their Android devices will be pleased to hear that it is coming to the Android platform. Previously only available on iOS, Android users and PC users will both be seeing the game available to them now that Stone Blade and Playdek have renewed their partnership. The Rise of Vigil expansion will come out for iOS this summer, with the Android version launching soon after.
The two companies will work together to continue to fulfill digital rewards from the Ascension Online kickstarter that started it all. The game will be cross-platform, so you’ll be able to play with your buddies who use different platforms and show of your skills. Both parties are pleased with their agreement and are anxious to move forward.
“We’re thrilled to continue working with Playdek,” said Justin Gary, Founder and CEO, Stone Blade Entertainment. “They did an incredible job on the original Ascension app, and we look forward to bringing the same high-quality game experience to our Android and PC fans.”
The announcement includes some words from Playdek as well, and appears very positive that the game will bring Ascension fans a great experience as does the board game. With their recent release of Solforge to Android going smoothly for the most part, I have high hopes for Ascension Online coming to the platform. The announcement also teases that the game may be coming to other platforms, which makes me wonder if it will be coming to some video game console settings as well. We will wait and see!
