Shown off yesterday at Microsoft’s big third party event for Xbox Series X, developers Neon Giant are bringing you The Ascent and they are going to take you on a journey through a cyberpunk dystopian world.
Tor Frick, Art Director and co-founder of Neon Giant says “We wanted to create a sci-fi RPG where players can play in the way they like, building up their character with cyberwear, augmentations and looting in a story-driven environment.”
The Ascent will feature:
- A free-roam play style in a cyberpunk inspired dystopian world accompanied with classic RPG mechanics to enable players to build up their character including cyberwear, augmentations and looting.
- An unprecedented sense of verticality within its world, with different levels and platforms discernible within play.
- Double-aim mechanic enables players to utilize the full screen and choose between multiple targets anywhere in the environment.
- A narrative-led adventure playable in single and up to four-player co-op modes.
The Ascent will be releasing on the Xbox family series of consoles and PC in 2020. Check out the trailer above and screens below. lookout for more info before release on Dual Pixels.
