Earlier in June, the Ascenders dev team took to Twitter to announce the arrival of its upcoming whitepaper, following a teaser campaign that saw the studio drop hints regarding the different aspects of the game.

“Ladies and gentlemen, we got ‘m. Our White Paper was successfully transmitted to our office and here to read, share (and love?),” the team’s tweet reads. 

Ascenders is a sci-fantasy game on the Avalanche blockchain, created by game development studio Legendary Foundry Games. At this stage of the game’s production, Ascenders is already gaining a lot of traction and hype within the blockchain community.

The whitepaper’s release will provide clarity to interested players who wish to join the game once released. Here’s what we know from it so far:
