Ascend: Hand of Kul Gets Discontinued on Xbox 360 [Updated]

Dear Players,

Signal Studios must regretfully announce that despite our best efforts and the games success, Microsoft has discontinued support for Ascend: Hand of Kul on the Xbox 360 and removed the game from the Xbox Live Marketplace. This surfaced to us while investigating various issues players have been experiencing over the weekend.

We are deeply saddened by this decision and the impact it has on our community. While Microsoft discontinued support for the Xbox 360 version of Ascend, Signal has released a free BETA version of the game on Steam with a wealth of gameplay improvements where the community can still enjoy slaying trolls and converting altars.

In appreciation of our fans, Signal Studios will grant all new Ascend PC players a starting bonus of souls totaling 25K which can be used to purchase gear, spells and buffs. All existing Ascend PC players will receive a 10K soul bonus just for playing.

Visit our Steam page for more information:

For any support questions pertaining to the Xbox 360 version of Ascend: Hand of Kul, please contact Xbox Support:


Signal Studios


We’re happy to comply with Microsoft’s request to post the following message:

Effective November 18, 2014, Ascend on Xbox 360 will close and all Soul purchases have been disabled as part of the Marketplace shutdown. Players will still be able to play Ascend on Xbox 360 and use any content they have already acquired until the game closure date. This only applies to Ascend on Xbox 360 - Ascend will continue to be available on the Steam gaming platform.

Thank you for your support and we hope to welcome you into our other gaming communities.
