  • The Ascent

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.

You belong to the corporation. Can you survive without it?


Play the entire game alone or work together with up to three friends in local or online co-op.


Aim low or high, switch weapons and equip lethal gadgets, take cover and use the destructible environments at your advantage and keep adjusting your tactic as you face new enemies.


Customize your character with cyberware that suits your playstyle. Allocate new skill points as you level-up and try various augmentations to take down your enemies in new creative ways.


Meet new allies and enemies and find loot as you explore the brimming world of The Ascent and its wide range of districts, from the deep slums to the higher luxury spheres.

The Ascent is a bit of a mess on Windows 10. I've already reported how the cyberpunk twin-stick shooter's latest patch negatively affected the Windows 10 version of the game, with stuttering, poor framerate and other technical struggles experienced by players. I'm in the same boat. I'm playing The Ascent via Xbox Game Pass on PC, and therefore the Windows 10 version, and ever since the recently-released patch came out, it's been pretty much unplayable.

The Ascent's first major patch brought stability fixes and ray tracing to the Windows 10 version of the game earlier this week, in line with an earlier Steam patch. Unfortunately it looks like it's also brought new stability and performance issues for a number of players on the Game Pass version. Read more
