Meanwhile, the free update introduces a Transmogrification feature, "allowing Indents to change their appearance to match the visual style of any armour currently in their inventory by visiting the Stylist and paying a small fee."
The Ascent is far from finished in terms of post-launch content, with plenty more new features set to arrive over the next few months. Here's what Tor Frick, Creative Director on The Ascent had to say about upcoming plans:
“We’ll be introducing features such as NewGame+, new VO lines for side missions, a free Winter Pack in December and a paid update to the Chongqing Pack and a brand new Cyber-Warrior paid pack early next year.
As always we’d like to thank our wonderful community for all their support - we hope everyone enjoys the new content!”
Happy with this new content for The Ascent? Will you be buying the DLC? Tell us down below.
Is the text still ridiculously small in this game? We're gaming on a 32" TV so the game has been somewhat unplayable, at least when we tried it at launch.
Is this game still buggy in co-op? My brother and I tried it together at launch and, while we loved the aesthetic, we had to stop due to the bugs - characters freezing, quests not loading etc. It was a mess.
I feel like a big fraud. I was so pumped to play this game and still haven't tried it. Really looking forward to Halo and playing through the old games just killed my time. Hopefully in the new year I'll get to finish up Pshyconauts 2 and maybe start this bad boy up finally.
All i want for Christmas is game time lol.
Looked forward to this game. Tried it. And was really like, meh.
Did this get a physical release? Looking for exclusive titles for my new series X that I can't get on my ps5.
Liked the atmosphere, played it for hours, but had some trouble with completing objectives, but damn this game is beautiful, gonna try it again this weekend, and see what's upgraded... .but then again they dropped so much this week, it's really getting silly... and bought physical copies of games during black friday, cheaper than digital including shipping, but it only adds to my backlog, wish we could buy time, cause that's the only commodity which I lack at this moment.
Awwwww maaaaaaan, when I read the title I thought some big juicy expansion was on the way!
I'd love that, the game is superb and I'd love more content to pull me back in 😊
I love this game but my noob roommate and cousin stopped playing it with me because it was too hard for them. I stopped playing to accommodate them with easier games on our game night. I'll be jumping back into it by my damn self soon enough.
