The Ascent, a cyberpunk RPG shooter, could be coming to PS5 and PS4 soon.

It just so happens that The Ascent’s PlayStation release date is approaching. The game has been rated for PS5 and PS4 in Taiwan, according to Gematsu, and ratings normally indicate that formal news is on the way. We’re not sure if The Ascent will be released before the end of the year – a suitable Christmas release, perhaps? — but it’s not far away.

The Ascent is a cyberpunk isometric action RPG shooter that was published early this year on PC and Xbox. It drew a lot of attention thanks to its extraordinarily realistic surroundings and aggressive gameplay, and it received mostly excellent reviews. Our pals over at Pure Xbox loved what they saw, so we were curious when it will be released on PlayStation platforms.

The Ascent is a solo and co-op Action-shooter RPG, set on Veles, a packed cyberpunk world.
Welcome to The Ascent Group arcology, a 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, you are suddenly caught in a vortex of catastrophic events: The Ascent Group shuts down for unknown reasons and the survival of your district is threatened. You must take up arms and embark on a new mission to find out what started it all.

The Ascent was, for me, one of the standout games from Microsoft’s very first next-gen showcase exactly one year ago, when they showed off a ton of third-party exclusives like Bright Memory Infinite and Second Extinction. And so I was pretty excited to finally get to play it – which, for transparency, was with mouse and keyboard controls through a PC streaming service. Anyway, it quickly became clear that The Ascent is an action-RPG that’s more like a twin-stick shooter; you’ve got melee special abilities but, from the couple of early missions I played, you’ll primarily be slaying bad guys through a Halo-style two-slot gun system. I’ll talk more about gameplay in a moment, but one thing is absolutely certain: The Ascent has its cyberpunk aesthetic nailed to a ‘T’.

I’ve got to talk about that cyberpunk vibe first, because The Ascent absolutely nails it. Bright, oversaturated pinks, purples, and blues are everywhere, and the world has an appropriately dirty and gritty feel. If the developers had acquired the Blade Runner license for this game, they wouldn’t have to change a thing aside from the name. It’s really, really potent from a visual standpoint, and I like that about it. It even managed to take me a bit by surprise when I dropped into the game world, because the character creator you start out in is fairly ho-hum compared to the fully decked-out cyberpunk world you get dumped into after finalizing your appearance.
