A new action RPG has been revealed by Curve Digital by the name of The Ascent. The Ascent is a sci-fi shooter that will allow for players to tackle the story alone or with a team of up to three friends through either online or local co-op in a cyberpunk world. Players take on the role of a worker, 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.
The reveal trailer as well as a number of screenshots can be found below and The Ascent is currently set to be released sometime this year for Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC.
