Ultra Pro and Stone Blade Entertainment are proud to announce their upcoming expansion to the Ascension universe, Gift of the Elements!
Gift of the Elements is our eleventh Ascension set and we’re excited to bring back two popular game mechanics: Events and Transform. Much like in our previous releases, Storm of Souls and Immortal Heroes, Events enter the game via the center deck and create an immediate impact for all players. However, unlike previous sets, Events can now be acquired and transformed into powerful Hero cards.
In addition to these fan favorites, we’re also introducing two new mechanics to Ascension: Infest and Empower.
For the first time in a full Ascension release, you can “infest” your opponent’s’ deck, forcing them to draw useless cards. This gameplay feature can slow down a player that jumps out early and introduces a strategic element not seen in previous sets.
But fear not! We’ve given players tools to deal with these cards in the form of Empower cards. When the player acquires an Empower card, he may banish a card played that turn. In other words, you can gain the effect of a card and then banish it. This added flexibility creates a lasting impact in each game and we’re excited for everyone to experience it.
Gift of the Elements will be released on Monday, March 20, 2017. And, if you preorder on AscensionGame.com, you’ll receive an exclusive preorder promo!
