Here Are The Release Times For The Ascent On Xbox Game Pass

This is a huge week for Xbox Game Pass. Not only has Microsoft Flight Simulator launched, but the cyberpunk RPG known as The Ascent is also dropping on July 29. While you may assume it's a midnight launch, it's actually coming quite late in the day, and developer Neon Giant has confirmed exactly when.

If you've booked the day off work to dive in, then unfortunately it may have been wasted as it's not actually launching on the Microsoft Store until the evening in Europe. If you're in the US, then you'll benefit from it being a little earlier at least, as it's scheduled to launch at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST.

Thankfully, you can pre-load the game now ahead of release, ensuring you're ready to go once it unlocks in your territory. It's currently sitting at 16.9GB on Xbox Series X, so it's not too big of a download.

If you want to know more about The Ascent, we sat down with the team earlier this year to talk about everything included in the upcoming adventure. We've also prepared an all-encompassing guide ahead of tomorrow's Xbox Game Pass release. Be sure to have a read prior to launch to get prepped for some cyberpunk goodness!
