The upcoming action RPG, “The Ascent” arrives on July 29, on Xbox Game Pass, and is one of many launching onto the service over the coming months. “The Ascent” is not a Microsoft-developed title, but it is console-exclusive to Xbox, something that has been rare since the new consoles launched back in November. “The Ascent” is not a AAA release by any means, but the game looks like a cross between “Diablo” and “Cyberpunk 2077” in an interesting way. The co-op RPG will be targeting 4K 60 FPS on the Xbox Series X, looking to take full advantage of the brand new hardware.
“The Ascent” also had a number of previews go up recently, including one from Windows Central, which have been generally positive. The twin-stick styled combat and the flexible RPG skill tree make for a fun and creative action RPG. Add that to a game with cross-play and four-player co-op, and you have a game that will tide over action RPG fans until “Diablo 2 Resurrected” launches later this year.
