Get ready for some cyberpunk fun!

The Ascent, an upcoming cyberpunk action RPG developed by Neon Giant and published by Curve Digital will officially come out on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass on July 29th, 2021.

The rumour started to spread after a post on Weibo made this morning by Curve Digital; according to it, the game will be released on July 29th as a PC and Xbox exclusive and it will be available on the Game Pass on the same day. Pre-orders start today, May 18th.

The game is a twin-stickied shooter, which gives the ability to aim both high and low on targets, differenciating between shooting closer enemies or further away. The character’s appearance is customizable and players can get new skills and abilities through cyber ware upgrades. The game environment is fully destructible and it reacts to the players actions such as impacts, skill powers and explosions. Defeating enemies will allow the player to collect a variety of loots (a system similar to the one used in Diablo series). The game can be played in single player, local co-op and online co-op (up to 4 players).
