Signal Studios, developer of the action-strategy game Toy Soldiers, announced its latest game at E3 on June 4. Ascend: New Gods, published by Microsoft, will be on Xbox Live Arcade sometime in 2013.

The game, which looks to be a gory hack-and-slash in the vein of God of War, will have what the developers call “parallel multiplayer.” This unique feature will put you in your own single-player world, but will allow you to see other players in their identical campaign – and possibly impact them in some way or another.

Upon release, the game will also be playable on Windows Phone, and players can transfer their progress to their 360 version.

About Will Whitehurst

Will joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign soon after news broke of that infamous French interview about Xenoblade. Subsequently, he got actively involved and became a staff member in July/August 2011. He is currently the head of the Japanese translation team, and loves to play, discuss, debate and learn more about games. Will gravitates towards unconventional action games and RPGs, but plays pretty much anything except Madden. He is also currently attending college, honing his Japanese skills and preparing for medical school. (Coincidentally, Trauma Center is one of his favorite game series of all time.)
