Twin-stick shooter with a cyberpunk theme The Ascension is given free transmog

The most recent version also includes eight free items of clothing—streetwear such as caps, jeans, and t-shirts—for you to try out the transmog feature, as well as the photo mode that was added in a previous release. It also fixes issues such as stability, achievements, and co-op players being unable to hear each other shoot. See the official patch notes for further information.

The Ascent portrays a very fashion-forward future, where you may wear a tank top with a cartoon cat or distorted smiley face to balance out your monstrous robotic servo arms and enormous weapons, and disable helmets to leave your mohawk or skull tat visible at all times. The most recent version features transmogrification, which allows you to change the appearance of any piece of armour or make it invisible. For a price, the Stylist, a business located in each safe zone, may transmog any equipped armour.

The Ascent may have some jarring difficulty spikes, but it’s a quality arcade shooter with a setting you’ll want to descend into and take screenshots of. As Andy Kelly said in his review, “From the lavish Golden Satori casino to the bleak, dilapidated Black Lake slums, this is a masterclass in creating a sense of place and establishing an atmosphere.”

Did you groan when you read cyberpunk in the title? We are with you, given 2020’s debacle with the much-awaited Cyberpunk 2077, which got fixed a bit too late. Fortunately, 2021 has brought many surprise hits: Outriders on PlayStation 5 and now The Ascent.

A surprising indie game from a small team of developers — Neon Giant, based in Sweden — that will put most AAA (i.e. the ‘blockbusters’) titles to shame. Also, it reintroduces the ‘punk’ into ‘cyberpunk’ with a gorgeous neon-clad — and, yes, dystopic — world drenched in rain and ultra-violence.

You play an indentured labourer, known as ‘Indents’, working for an evil conglomerate known as The Ascent. Doomed to live out the rest of your days undertaking menial tasks, you crave freedom… until one day The Ascent suddenly shuts down and all chaos breaks loose.

The Ascent gives you a lot of guns, lets you upgrade them and there are plenty of satisfying pops and explosions. In fact, more than the time you spend shooting them, you will spend tweaking their various stats, and trying it on the local enemy population to spray paint the walls shades of red.
