The Ascent release date revealed
Neon Giant’s cyberpunk action-shooter RPG The Ascent launches July 29th, 2021, publisher Curve Digital has announced.
The upcoming game puts players in the role of an indentured worker for The Ascent Group arcology, a corporate run metropolis. One day, The Ascent Group shuts down for unknown reasons and players must take up arms to fight for the survival of their district against rival corporations and syndicates looking to fill the space left behind.
“We are super excited that people will soon be able to jump into the world of The Ascent,” Arcade Berg, creative director and co-founder of Neon Giant, said. “We love making games and we do it because we want people to enjoy the experience and world we have created – so we’ve designed a game that lets all players have fun with the element of gameplay that interests them the most. Whether you’re someone who enjoys exploring every corner, loves exciting combat or gets invested in the story and lore, we’ve tried to put something in The Ascent for everyone.”
The Ascent launches July 29th for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. The game will also be available through Xbox Game Pass from day one.
