Ascension: Deckbuilding Game released on PC

You can get the original base game as well as all five of the expansions and promo packs for $9.99. In case you were wondering, this is a fantastic price for all of this content.

In Ascension: Deckbuilding Game, you battle against one to three players to take over the game’s fantasy world, Vigil. Online play is real-time and asynchronous, and you can also utilize the pass-and-play feature. The game “also boasts cross-platform connectivity to allow players across all platforms to play against one another online.” As someone who regularly destroys the AI, this is extremely appealing.

Playdek’s CEO, Joel Goodman, said, “We’re pleased to bring our first PC game to fans… PC gamers can now get the same engaging and strategic Ascension experience that mobile users have enjoyed and made the No. 1 deck-building game on iOs.”

Ascension: Deckbuilding Game is available now on Steam for $9.99.
