Curve Digital has announced a new cyberpunk solo and co-op action RPG, The Ascent. In this game, you assume the role of 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.”
Through out the game, players will make allies as well as enemies as they explore the brimming arcology and its wide range of districts. Players will have to consider enemies’ height and weaknesses into account when fighting, making the most out of every opportunity. Moreover, players will have to take down even the worst opponents to find the rarest loot.
Enjoy the game’s debut trailer and stay tuned for more!
