The Ascent is a solo and co-op action RPG set in a cyberpunk world. Ever since Cyberpunk 2077 got announced, there seems to be an uptick of cyberpunk-themed games, but I ain’t complaining about that as this game does look very impressive and promising!

The Ascent is a solo and co-op action RPG, set on Veles, a packed cyberpunk world.

Welcome to The Ascent Group arcology, a self-contained corporate-run metropolis, stretching high into the sky and filled with creatures from all over the galaxy

You play as a worker, enslaved by the company that owns you and everyone else in your district. One day, whilst sent on a routine assignment to make use of your skills with a cyberdeck, you are suddenly caught in a vortex of catastrophic events. The Ascent Group, the largest mega-corporation on the planet, shuts down for unknown reasons, causing the automated security systems to go haywire.

The survival of your district is threatened: rival corporations are trying to force appropriation and crime syndicates are looking to boost their black-market augmentation trade. You must take up arms to stop them from seizing control and embark on a new mission to find out what started it all.

You belong to the corporation. Can you survive without it?

It’s a pretty interesting asymmetric game that seems to be going all the way with the details and customization. Heck, you can even call it the “next-gen” ARPG! I remember when I first saw this game revealed six months ago, but as more details came out, I really began to appreciate the work that Neon Giant is doing, especially for a small indie team!
