Yes, the rumors are true! We have changed our name from Ascend: New Gods toAscend: Hand of Kul. We think it’s more fitting, don’t you?
While the internet offers many speculations on why the sudden name change, the real reason is this: A year has passed since our big unveil at E3 2012, and the New Gods are no longer “new”. 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.
Although the news came as a sudden shock to us, we agreed with their decision. Left without a governing body, we decided on our own that it would be more appropriate to give the title a more story-centric name. How? Well, you’re just going to have to play the game to find out.
