The Ascent video game on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows 10

After being delayed in late-2020, The Ascent has now been given the new release date of July 29th for Microsoft’s Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles and Windows PC. The game will also be added to the Xbox Game Pass subscription service that same day which means that anyone with an active Xbox Game Pass subscription will be able to play it for free on Day One.

Digital pre-orders for The Ascent are now live and pre-downloads have apparently been enabled. As usual though, it won’t be playable until launch day.

The Ascent is an action-shooter roleplaying game that can be played either solo or with up to three friends. On Xbox Series X consoles, the game will support 60 FPS, 4K, and ray tracing.

A new trailer was released today which you can watch below.
