We’re excited to announce that The Ascent will be available with Xbox Game Pass at launch in 2021. Developed by Neon Giant and published by Curve Digital, The Ascent will target 60 fps and full 4K on the Xbox Series X, offering amazing gameplay performance for the new generations of console players.
We want to give you The Ascent at the best possible quality so on Xbox Series X consoles you’ll see increased fidelity, Ultra HD support, and improved loading times which will make each thrilling moment in this corporation-run universe feel ever so real.
Today, we’re also happy to say that development is progressing well and we’re illustrating this with new footage of Neon Giant’s vision of Veles, the cyberpunk planet that The Ascent takes place on. You can see this world in action here.
The Ascent will see you 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, your 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. It’ll be your job to take up arms and uncover what’s happening before it’s too late.
While the team of 11 at Neon Giant is small, their ambitions are large, and The Ascent is proof of this! With destructible environments, solo and co-op gameplay, bionic enhancements, customisable weapons and a story that takes you from deep slums to luxury spheres, the team has created a living, breathing cyberpunk world that rivals the best of sci-fi novels.
The Ascent is coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles in 2021 and will be available with Xbox Game Pass from launch. Make sure to check out the new video and subscribe to the Curve Digital YouTube channel here and follow us on Twitter here to keep up to date with The Ascent. We look forward to sharing more details with you early 2021.
