A steady climb
The Ascent was met with slightly mixed reviews when it launched on PC and Xbox platforms around eight months ago, but it arrives on PlayStation 5 a much improved game. A slew of updates have fixed bugs and rebalanced various gameplay elements since the title's 2021 release. What's more, new content — like New Game+, a transmog...
Sorry, no The Ascent screenshots yet.
The Ascent is a high-octane, top-down shooter set in a grim cyberpunk world. We liked it, and are looking forward to jumping into the new Cyber Heist DLC, which is available now on PS5 and PS4. Cyber Heist adds new missions, areas, enemies, and the inclusion of melee weapons, all of which can be experienced alone or with a friend in...
For additional testing purposes

On the up
Cyberpunk shooter-RPG The Ascent is making the jump to PlayStation platforms after roughly seven months of exclusivity on Xbox and PC. It's a title that we've had our eyes on for a while, so we caught up with creative director Arcade Berg to find out what the updated game has to offer on PS5 and PS4.

For those who may not be familiar, The Ascent is an isometric shooter with RPG elements, like side quests, character building, skill trees, and loot. It received decent reviews at launch,...
Roll out the red carpet
At the end of last year, The Ascent — currently on Xbox and PC — was seemingly outed as coming to PlayStation as well, albeit a little late. A Taiwanese rating appeared, more or less confirming a port to PS5 and PS4. It wasn't quite enough on its own, but this rating has just been backed up with another, from American...
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.
SOLO OR CO-OP Play the entire game alone or work together with up to three friends in local or online co-op.
EXPLOSIVE SHOOTER 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.
RPG ELEMENTS 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.
A VIBRANT CYBERPUNK WORLD 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.
