New Game+ hits Steam today
Curve Games and Neon Giant have announced that The Ascent, a cyberpunk RPG, will be releasing on PS4 and PS5 on March 24th, 2022.
There’s more good news, too, as Steam players will get an update today that adds the oft-requested New Game+ mode to The Ascent, completely free of charge.
If you’re interested in getting stuck into The Ascent on PS4 and PS5, pre-orders are now open and if you pledge your pre-order before the game releases, you’ll get an exclusive RPEG 33 energy-type Rocket Launcher for your trouble.
Co-founder and Creative Director of the studio Arcade Berg said: “We’ve been blown away by how amazing the response to The Ascent has been so far on Xbox and PC, so we are thrilled to be bringing the game to a new audience of PlayStation players. We started making The Ascent because we love making games and we want to share what we’ve made with as many gamers as possible in the hope that people enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
Tor Frick, Creative Director and fellow co-founder of Neon Giant added: “ Our wonderful community and their feedback is so important to us and helps us shape the game. It’s amazing to look back and see how far we’ve come even since The Ascent first launched in July last year. We have been able to add new features that players want such as Photo Mode, Transmogrification and now New Game+, as well as the DLC packs. We’re super excited to now be able to bring all of this to players on PlayStation and grow our great community.”
In addition to New Game+ on Steam, which is free, there’s a new DLC pack for PC players and it’s the Cyber Warrior DLC pack. Included in this DLC are two new weapons, seven pieces of armour, and three new weapon skins, and it’s all for the price of $4.99/£3.99/€4.99.
