Rising High: Multiplayer Action-RPG The Ascent Coming to Xbox Series X and PC
from Curve Digital in 2020

Dystopian Cyberpunk Epic Debut Game Developed by Neon Giant

London, UK – 8th May, 2020: As a new console generation dawns, Curve Digital is
excited to announce it has an Xbox Series X title in the works, courtesy of brand
new Swedish studio Neon Giant – an 11-person development team formed by individuals
with considerable Triple-A experience on titles such as the Bulletstorm, Gears of
War and Wolfenstein franchises.

Also launching on Xbox One and PC, The Ascent will offer players the chance to step
into an action-orientated sci-fi RPG powered by Unreal Engine 4 that takes the genre
to new levels, available to play in both single-player and up to four-player co-op.

“We wanted to create a sci-fi RPG where players can play in the way they like,
building up their character with cyberwear, augmentations and looting in a
story-driven environment,” says Tor Frick, Art Director and co-founder of Neon

Arcade Berg, fellow co-founder and the studio’s Game Director adds – “For us,

The Ascent will feature:
* A free-roam play style in a cyberpunk inspired dystopian world
* Classic RPG mechanics to enable players to build up their character including
cyberwear, augmentations and looting
* An unprecedented sense of verticality within its world, with different levels and
platforms discernible within play
* Double-aim mechanic enables players to utilize the full screen and choose between
multiple targets anywhere in the environment
* A narrative-led adventure playable in single and up to four-player co-op modes

“It was obvious from the moment we met that Tor, Arcade and the whole Neon Giant
team that they were doing something very special,” says Simon Byron, Publishing
Director, Curve Digital. “They know how to make games where combat feels right, and
even in its very early stages, The Ascent has been enormously playable. Everyone at
the studio is determined to show how a tightly-focused, passionate team can create
something which will stand shoulder to shoulder with games whose credits run into
the hundreds, and The Ascent truly is an audacious debut.”

“The fact that Microsoft has seen enough behind the scenes in the early stages of
development to very publicly give The Ascent such overwhelming backing should give
you an idea of its promise. I’m relieved we are finally able to start showing it

The Ascent will launch on the Xbox Family of devices, including Xbox Series X, and
PC in 2020. Look out for further details on the game’s launch in the months ahead.
