Ascendant Studios Partners With EA Originals For First-Person Magic Shooter, Immortals Of Aveum

Ascendant Studios, an independent team of veteran developers has partnered with Electronic Arts’ EA Originals Label to release the studio’s debut title, Immortals of Aveum.

EA Originals is a program within Electronic Arts that was created to support independently developed video games. Immortals of Aveum is a new single-player and first-person magic shooter that’s set in an original fantasy universe engulfed in magic, rife with conflict, and on the verge of oblivion.

Bret Robbins, CEO and Game Director at Ascendant Studios commented, “I was the creative director on four big games in a row, the original Dead Space and three Call of Duty titles, and I had an amazing opportunity to start my own studio and build an incredible team that I’m lucky to work with every day. I founded Ascendant Studios to make original and epic games, and here we are, four years later, about to finish our first one. What started as a crazy, exciting idea has grown into a crazy, exciting triple-A game. I chose EA as our publishing partner because we know they’ll help Immortals of Aveum reach the biggest audience possible. I’m thrilled to have the expertise and resources of EA backing us and I can’t wait for everyone to play!”

Robbins has spent years directing some of the industry’s most beloved titles and commenced assembling a team of passionate and experienced storytellers in 2018 to bring this magic shooter concept to life.

Jeff Gamon, General Manager of EA Partners stated in a press release, “The roster of talent Bret and his team at Ascendant Studios have gathered under one roof is incredible; they are exactly the right team to bring an ambitious project like this to life. Every team member has a wealth of experience developing many of gaming’s biggest cinematic action and first-person shooter games over the past decade. Immortals of Aveum is the result of Ascendant’s vast collective experience and great ambition, fused with their bold and creative vision. EA Partners is proud and excited to collaborate with Ascendant in launching this epic, action-packed brand new IP; a game players will never forget.”

EA Originals will allow players to discover untold stories, unseen worlds, and unheard voices. The program is currently working with several new studios on exciting projects that’ll be released next year including Ascendant Studios’ Immortals of Aveum.

The game will be launched on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC in 2023.
