The Ascent will be coming to PlayStation platforms next month but before that, PC players can enjoy some new content and features. A new update has added New Game Plus and there’s a new paid DLC, the Cyber Warrior Pack, which adds new weapons and cosmetics for $5. Check out the latter in the trailer below.

The Cyber Warrior Pack offers a spiffy new Samurai armor set with seven different pieces. Two new weapons have also been added – the Interuptor and the Brosnan – with the latter receiving three new weapon skins. A new tactical item, the PLM22 Surge, is also included.

As for New Game Plus, it’s available upon completing the main campaign. Simply go to Single Player and select New Game+ from the main menu to proceed. This allows for carrying over all of your weapons, gear and skills to fight against tougher enemies. The level cap also increases to 30 and weapons can be upgraded past Mk.10.

Check out the patch notes below for more details. The Ascent is currently available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. It launches on March 24th for PS4 and PS5.
