The Gods have been taken out of Ascend: New Gods.
The title, a free-to-play XBLA strategy game from Signal Studios, is being renamed to Ascend: Hand of Kul.
“A year has passed since our big unveil at E3 2012, and the New Gods are no longer ‘new,'” a representative told PlayXBLA. “It was a tough decision, but during their board meeting in The Sanctum a couple of weeks ago, the New Gods decided to step down from power.”
The only reason given for the name change is that it is a “more story-centric name.”
