Since “The Ascent” released on July 29, 2021 and has been gaining traction with fans. Before you decide whether you’re ready to dive into this cyberpunk RPG, you’ll want to know what you’re in for, especially when it comes to how much time the game takes to beat.
“The Ascent” takes place in a sci-fi world where a giant corporation known as The Ascent Group “owns you and everyone.” That is, until it collapses and you’re left to your own devices. The game is published by Curve Digital, and it’s the first game ever from the 11-person Swedish development studio Neon Giant. Though it’s got a cyberpunk vibe, it’s not to be confused with the glitch-filled title “Cyberpunk 2077.”
