The Ascent is an action RPG developed by Neon Giant and published by Curve Digital.
It is set in the cyberpunk world of Veles, and can be played both solo and co-operatively.
The cyberpunk action RPG shooter launched in 2021 to great success and is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC.
Kraftos has also revealed that Neon Giant is working on its next project, which is an open world first person shooter.
Available for PC, Xbox and PlayStation, the DLC includes a new arcology, new main and side missions, melee weapons, and new enemies.
The new DLC brings missions and side missions set after the events of the base game, on top of new weapons and overworld locations.
The Ascent's developers are celebrating the game's first anniversary by taking to Twitter and teasing a new expansion. Sadly the studio hasn't revealed more details just yet.
Cross-generation play was unintentionally added to the game on PS5 and PS4, and needs more testing to ensure the best and most consistent experience.
Set in the cyberpunk arcology of Veles, players fend off hostile gangs and factions following the mysterious fall of The Ascent Group.
A "technical issue" caused a delay for Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S players, which Neon Giant is "working to resolve as soon as possible."
The new DLC adds Samurai armor with seven pieces, two new weapons, three new weapons skins and a new tactical item for $5.
Pre-orders can net an exclusive weapon with the RPEG 33 which comes with a laser sight and fires energy shots. It's also blue.
Neon Giant's cyberpunk action RPG launched last year for PC and Xbox, and a PlayStation launch hasn't yet been officially confirmed.
Neon Giant's top-down cyberpunk action RPG The Ascent launched for Xbox and PC earlier this year, and was recently rated for PlayStation in Taiwan.
You can now visit the Stylist in each of the game's three safe zones, who will allow you to transmog any and all armor items.
For $4.99, you get the NEWT Grenade Launcher and RECOIL Ballistic Burst Rifle along with the GR00P Cluster Grenade as new Tactical Gear.
