Cyberpunk Shooter/RPG “The Ascent” Launching in July for Steam PC, Xbox Platforms

Publisher Curve Digital recently announced that Neon Giant’s cyberpunk-inspired shooter RPG The Ascent is scheduled to release on 29 July for Steam PC, Xbox One, and SeXbox. It will also be available via Xbox Game Pass on day one.

You can check out The Ascent’s latest trailer below followed by the breakdown of the game from Curve Digital.

The Ascent will see players dive into ‘The Ascent Group’ arcology, a self-contained corporate-run metropolis, stretching high into the sky and filled with creatures from all over the galaxy. Taking on the role of an indentured worker, the world starts to go haywire when The Ascent Group shuts down for unknown reasons. Life becomes a case of survival, with rival corporations and crime syndicates looking to fill the empty space. Players will have to take up arms and hold them off. The Ascent begins here.

The Ascent will offer players the chance to step into an action-orientated sci-fi RPG powered by Unreal Engine that takes the genre to new levels, available to play in both single-player and up to four-player co-op.
