Signal Studios has announced that its closed beta for Ascend: Hand of Kul has opened.

The free-to-play action-RPG title comes from the developers of Toy Soldiers on XBLA, in which players are tasked with fighting various creatures. Persistent multiplayer also allows players to assist or hinder other players in battle.

The studio confirmed the news on the game’s website, which states that testers who previously applied should be on the lookout for an email within the next 24 hours.

There will be future beta opportunities later on, so don’t fear if you’re not selected straight away in the first batch. You can also still sign-up here.

The full game launches later this year on XBLA.
