The Ascent Release Date

29Jul2021in 4days


developer: Neon Giant publisher: Curve Digital Official website

The Ascent is Neon Giant's debut project. The team was founded in 2018 and was made up of industry veterans who worked on titles like Bulletstorm, Far Cry 3 or Doom. The first work of the developer is a cooperative cyberpunk shooter with RPG elements. Curve Digital is responsible for releasing the game.


In accordance with the cyberpunk convention, The Ascent action takes place in the future. The world is ruled by a huge corporation The Ascent Group, controlling everything and everyone. But this time nobody has to go to fight the greedy company. The Ascent Group falls at the very beginning of the game in mysterious circumstances, which - unlike it may seem - is no reason to be happy. A society deprived of supervision and protection is at the mercy of bandits and small companies fighting each other. The main hero stands in their way, trying to discover the truth about the fall of The Ascent Group.


The Ascent uses the classic isometric shooter scheme. So we are going through various locations full of enemies, which we are dealing with using a diverse arsenal. In the fight we have to take into account the size and weak points of our enemies in order to best lead the battle. For victories we receive valuable loot, including equipment and upgrades for our hero.

Game modes

The Ascent allows you to go through the campaign alone, but there is also the option to play with up to three friends in cooperation mode.

Technical aspects

Neon Giant studio used Unreal Engine 4 and typical dirty cyberpunk style. The graphics, although relatively realistic, are also slightly exaggerated in the style known from Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden.
