The Ascent launches for PlayStation next month
Curve Games has announced that Neon Giant’s cyberpunk action shooter RPG The Ascent is coming to PlayStation consoles on March 24th.
The game is set on The Ascent Group arcology, a corporate-run metropolis, and places players in control of a worker who has been enslaved by the company. One day, the Ascent Group shuts down for unknown reasons and now players must fight to find out what happened and for their survival.
Players who preorder the game on PlayStation will receive the RPEG 33 rocket launcher with a unique blue laser sight.
To accompany the PlayStation announcement, Neon Giant has released New Game+ mode for the PC version of the game. This new mode unlocks after completing mission 12 of the game and features tougher enemies with extra abilities, faster enemy projectiles, a level cap increase to 30, and the ability to upgrade weapons past Mk.10.
The Ascent is available now on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, with a PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 release set for March 24th.
