Three-year-old card battler Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer has just received another huge expansion pack, in the form of Ascension: Rise of Vigil.

The update gives you 46 new center deck cards (11 Monster cards, 24 Hero cards, and 11 Construct cards). Plus, new energy shard cards unlock the latent power of Heroes, Monsters and Constructs to make them more powerful.

The expansion also features new background art, redesigned card backs, and fresh music. It's available as an IAP, now, for £2.49 / $3.99.

Back in 2011 - practically the cretaceous period when it comes to iOS games - we called the game "a clever and tactical game that just lacks the extra features to truly ascend to the top of the deck". We were big into puns in 2011.

Ascension supports real-time and asynchronous online play for one to four players, as well as pass-and-play multiplayer features or play against AI opponents. The base game is free.
