Playdek and Stone Blade Entertainment have released Rise of Vigil – an in-app expansion for the iOS card game Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer. The expansion adds a new energy shard mechanic, which gives players the ability to upgrade heroes, monsters, and constructs. This changes the dynamic of certain cards; making weaker ones potentially much more powerful.
Rise of Vigil also includes 46 new center deck cards; including 11 new Monster cards, 24 new Hero cards, 11 new Construct cards, and new starting deck art as well as new background theme art and music.
Joel Goodman, CEO of Playdek says, “We’re excited to release this new expansion to the popular Ascension series and we thank fans for waiting. The new energy shard cards energize the gameplay by making players rethink old strategies.”
You can download Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer for free, and purchase the Rise of Vigil in-game update for $3.99.
As part of this agreement Playdek is committed to maintaining the current online infrastructure (no fretting over the possible loss of multiplayer anymore, yay!), including cross-platform multiplayer functionality. But wait, isn’t Ascension currently iOS-exclusive, you say? Well our friends over at AndroidRundown have plenty to be excited about too, because shortly after the new expansion lands on the App Store, the title will be launching on both PC and Android for the first time.
For now though, you can brush up on your deck building skills by downloading Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer for free on the App Store.

Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, which actually received the honor of being a 148apps Editor’s Choice game, was recently updated to include a new “Promo Pack;” a purchasable upgrade that packs a variety of new cards. Instead of charging you outright for the game, the developers behind Ascension have decided on a free-to-play model, including a variety of packs and features within in the game that are only obtainable as in-app purchases.
Today’s update to Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer brings Promo Pack 4, which is said to be a “a digital exclusive ready to challenge how you play Ascension!” The update packs “3 new Heroes, 1 new Construct, and 1 new Monster,” according to the game’s version 1.6.0 update notes. This pack is the fourth Promo Pack to be released, but actually one of 7 sets of additional features which are purchasable in-game.
