The Ascent Celebrates One Year Anniversary; Teases New Content

A recent Tweet by developer Neon Giant looks to be teasing some new content coming to The Ascent. The post shows a ten-second video which celebrates the first anniversary of the game. According to the video, we should “gear up for a new contract” which suggests that a new DLC or expansion is underway.

The video is short but sweet, also accompanied by the line “…we’ll just leave this here…” in the post. This implies there could be something on the horizon.

The Ascent was released last year in July, bringing its own flavour of classic RPG inspiration in a top-down styled shooter. The game utilises cover systems and destructible environments. The title gives both single-player and co-op options, with up to four players. Players transcend its vertical design through a giant skyscraper with the freedom to roam the rundown world. Its fast-paced action is paired with cyberwar customisation and loot ’em gameplay. We gave it a solid 8.5 in our The Ascent review, which gained high points in story, gameplay and more.

In March this year, the game received a New Game+ mode, as well as CyberWarrior DLC which included new weapons, armor and skins. New Game+ means you can bring in all the gear, weapons, knowledge and skills received in your first run, now with a higher level of difficulty.
