the ascent is coming to PlayStation consoles next month, developer Neon Giant announced this week. The game was first released in July 2021 as a console exclusive on Xbox systems, but was also available through the PC platform. It’s a bullet-riddled cyberpunk shooter where players fight their way from the bottom of the industrial ladder to the upper ranks of the corporations that rule the land. It will be playable on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles on March 24.
The announcement was shared on social media this week with a brief trailer below to show off some of what the ascent consists of. Pre-orders are also live now for the game starting at $29.99 for the two-in-one PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 deal, but if you buy it between now and when it’s released, you’ll apparently save 10% if you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription.

One day, you are suddenly caught in a whirlwind of catastrophic events: the Ascent Group closes its doors for unknown reasons and the survival of your neighborhood is threatened.You must take up arms and embark on a new mission to find out what started it all.
Although you can farm all cyberpunky abilities, weapons and other resources by yourself in the ascent, you can also play with others, as the game supports up to four players at a time in a co-op session. You can allocate skill points to different stats and attributes to create a character to suit your playstyle while amassing your arsenal and taking down normal grunts and bigger baddies.
We have revised the ascent back when the game was first released and I found it had some great ideas that were being held back by technical issues and abilities or special effects that just didn’t work as intended. These issues have hopefully since been resolved to ensure a smoother experience.
