Take a Look at 12 Minutes of The Ascent Gameplay From the Xbox Series X

We didn’t see much during the Xbox livestream, but IGN has delivered something of substance

Microsoft’s May edition of Inside Xbox might have been a big letdown in terms of gameplay presentation and, while we’ve already discussed why you shouldn’t be that disappointed, we can largely agree with everyone that there should have been more gameplay. Thankfully, IGN has managed to come up with 12 minutes of gameplay from The Ascent, one of the very games that was announced during the Inside Xbox stream.

The gameplay you see above backs up previous thoughts that The Ascent is an action-RPG set in cyberpunk world. It looks like a blend between Diablo and Judge Dredd while the city itself reminds a lot of Blade Runner (old and new.) The gameplay you see here is based on solo mode, but IGN has said that there will be a co-op mode so that you can play along with others.

The Ascent is a launch title for the Xbox Series X, but it’s also set to be available for the Xbox One though Microsoft’s Smart Delivery feature, so it’s not actually a next-gen game. It will simply be enhanced for the Series X. It will also be available on PC via Steam and, possibly, other channels. For now, we don’t know exactly when it will launch, but since it’s being considered a launch title for the Series X, you can imagine it will launch the same day as the console during the “holiday 2020” window.

We’re posting the announce trailer below in case you missed that – it’s certainly something to watch, and be sure to stay tuned as there will surely be more to talk about in the coming weeks and months. Oh, and if you haven’t heard the latest Series X news yet, word has it that Microsoft could price the console at just $400!
