The Ascent is a solo, and co-op, sci-fi shooter set in a cyberpunk world where a Mega Corporation owns you and everyone else.

With Cyber Heist players will be able to experience an all new environment and new locations with a lot to explore. Importantly, you’re going to be needing some new gear. Luckily for you contractors there is a host of new weapons to try out, including new melee weapons. Now you can get up close and personal. Additionally, you’ll be able to use all of this new gear in new main and side missions. Players can get a glimpse in the trailer for the Cyber Heist DLC.
