Ascension & Nightfall Announcements

Ok, well one is more of an update than an announcement, but let's jump right in as these are both great things to see, hear, and know about!

First up is the announcement that Ascension Storm of Souls will see it's expansion, Immortal Heroes coming this Summer!  Now, while this means great things for Justin Gary, John Fiorillo and the crew at Gary Games, it also means that we may see Storm of Souls on the iOS version of Ascension, not too far behind!

Ascension: Immortal Heroes is designed to be a 2-player standalone game in addition to being an expansion for Ascension: Storm of Souls to play with up to 6 players! The 69 new center deck cards feature tons of new Events and Trophy monsters introduced in Storm of Souls, as well as all new cards for every faction. In addition, players will be able to tap into the power of Soul Gems - trapped souls of heroes from the past.

From their official announcement:

The next Ascension expansion, Ascension: Immortal Heroes, is coming to stores this summer! Wield the power of past heroes with new Soul Gem cards, and stop the rebel godling Kythis from fueling his mad ascent to godhood. Expanding the hit 2011 expansion, Ascension: Storm of Souls, Immortal Heroes offers more of the deckbuilding action you love for only $29.99 MSRP.

Here's what you get in the expansion:
  • 164 Cards, Including:
    • 69 New Center Deck Cards
    • 40 Soul Gem Cards
    • 2 Personal Starting Decks, Each containing 8 Apprentice and 2 Militia cards
    • 35 “Always available” cards (1 Cultist, 2 Fanatics, 16 Mystics and 16 Heavy Infantry)
  • 30 Deluxe Honor Tokens
  • Full-Color Rulebook

Next, speaking of the iOS version of games, is the update on Nightfall, an AEG made Deck Building game for Vampire and Werewolf lovers!  This is slated to come out in a few short weeks, and is made by the same company, Playdeck, that did the greatly reviewed Ascension iOS app!  As part of an update on BG we get some great looking screenshots as well!
