Ascension Tactics will be a new spin on the traditional deckbuilding game that will utilize miniatures to add to the overall strategy element of the tabletop experience. Miniatures-use as a strategy element is relatively unexplored territory for deckbuilding games, and Gary is clearly looking to bring an innovative design to market:
“Ascension Tactics is the culmination of everything I’ve learned from a decade of making Ascension and a lifetime of designing and playing tabletop miniatures games,” said Justin Gary, CEO of Stone Blade Entertainment. “This is the most ambitious tabletop game we’ve ever attempted, and I am excited to partner with Ultra PRO and our fans to bring it to life this summer.”
This new Ascension game will feature new art, high-quality miniatures, and story-driven scenarios. The crowd-funding campaign launches on Kickstarter on July 7,2020.
Ultra Pro also announced Ascension: Eternal set, scheduled to release in late summer (see "Ultra Pro Makes 'Ascension: Eternal'").
