Developer Neon Giant is celebrating its third anniversary with a new trailer for its upcoming game, The Ascent, which follows a 4K gameplay trailer from March. Set in a cyberpunk world, it is a single-player and co-op action-shooter RPG using the Unreal Engine. Based on the recommended specs (Intel Core i7 and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070), the game’s stunning visuals could be a bit demanding. The install size is a modest 35 GB. It will release on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One consoles on July 29.

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?

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
