New company Gamer Entertainment will launch Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, a new deckbuilding game, in August. The new game joins Dominion, the highly successful deckbuilding game in a box, in a relatively new category that gives CCG fans a way to enjoy the type of gameplay they prefer at lower cost and without the “chase.” Ascension reduces set-up time and increases replayability “…by refreshing the cards that are available during gameplay,” according to the announcement.
It features multiple factions, demons, heroes, and constructs from different planes in a battle to determine which player will ascend to godhood.

In-store events and exclusive promo cards will support the launch.
