Ascension X: War of Shadows coming this July!

April 26, 2016 - 6:42pm
ascension x Ascension X: War of Shadows is a new standalone expansion to the beloved deck building series. Coming this July and available for order on May 27th, this newest entry to the Ascension series follows the trend of it's predecessors of adding in a new twist to the otherwise time-hardened mechanics of the long running series. As described via press release:
New dual-cost Heroes and Constructs require players to use both resources to acquire them and receive incredible power! As the balance between Light and Dark shifts, cards gain additional powers depending on whether it is Night or Day.
Containing 177 new cards, more honor tokens, and a new board, Ascension X is ready for both new and loyal fans. Dual-cost mechanics are a welcome addition to the characteristically rich environment of Ascension, and I imagine the new cards will have power worth their investment. As a fan of the original game, it's always a pleasure to see the series grow and evolve. One can tell the pride that Stoneblade has in their product and it's lineage - look at that cover art! It's gorgeous! Stoneblade is really putting something special in this box, and eager fans can get their hands on it soon!
