If you are wondering if The Ascent has crossplay, the answer is yes, and it will also the release next month on July 29th, 2021, and launch on Xbox series X/S and PC.
The announcement was made during today's e3 Xbox event, where The Ascent was showcased as coop ARPG set in a distant cyberpunk future that can be played either solo or with other players.
The premise behind the game was also revealed to be a world filled with mega-corporations, and players will take on the role of a mercenary for one of these corporations. The Ascent also takes place on a distant world where the Ascent group (a mega corp) has just collapsed, and the player will have to fight criminals, rouge mercs, and all sorts of aliens to survive.
The game will also feature cover and destructible environments and numerous RPG elements, such as a skill point system and customizable cyberware.
Players will also be able to take on numerous augmentations to give themselves an advantage when fighting foes. We imagine these will also be upgradeable and come in the form of equipable items similar to Cyberpunk 2077.
Looting will play a strong role as well in the overall gameplay of Ascent, and players will be able to gather as much as they can carry as they explore the world.
