The Ascent Overview

The Ascent is a solo and co-op Action-shooter RPG, set on Veles, a packed cyberpunk world. It launched on Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC on July 29, 2021 and is also available on Xbox Game Pass.

Welcome to The Ascent Group arcology, a corporate-run metropolis stretching high into the sky and filled with creatures from all over the galaxy. You play as a worker, enslaved by the company that owns you and everyone else in your district. One day, you are suddenly caught in a vortex of catastrophic events: The Ascent Group shuts down for unknown reasons and the survival of your district is threatened. You must take up arms and embark on a new mission to find out what started it all.

FEATURES

  • Explosive Shooter | Aim low or high, switch weapons and equip lethal gadgets, take cover and use the destructible environments at your advantage and keep adjusting your tactic as you face new enemies.
  • RPG Elements | Customize your character with cyberware that suits your playstyle. Allocate new skill points as you level-up and try various augmentations to take down your enemies in new creative ways.
  • A Vibrant Cyberpunk World | Meet new allies and enemies and find loot as you explore the brimming world of The Ascent and its wide range of districts, from the deep slums to the higher luxury spheres.
