Ascend: New Gods getting PC version with cross-platform interactions

XBLAFANS writes: Action game Ascend: New Gods will be ported over to the PC, developer Signal Studios has informed Co-Optimus. The PC version’s content is said to mirror that of the XBLA game, though Co-Optimus says “some details remain up in the air.”

New Gods places a heavy focus on its unique multiplayer functionality and Microsoft SmartGlass. These features are designed to bring players together without having them actually play alongside each other and using the “second screen,” respectively. The PC — perhaps the original second screen — version will push that idea even further, allowing those playing the game on it to interact in some ways with XBLA players. Specifics were not discussed, but the game’s E3 demo showed how gamers could send “curses” or “blessings” to and from the game worlds of others. (Ascend: New Gods, PC, Xbox 360)
