Action role-player The Ascent expands this month with “Cyber-Heist”

One of the bigger action-RPG titles of recent years, 2021’s The Ascent is about to expand with a loaded piece of DLC called “Cyber-Heist”.

Expansion pack

While The Ascent wasn’t the best received game critically, it did look sharp, and garnered some acclaim from fans. It was also an action RPG. And outside of a few big names, you don’t see a ton of those out on the market these days.

And far from drifting away into the neon-hued night, The Ascent is back and ready for more thanks to a new expansion pack. Once again from both Curve Games and Neon Giant, Cyber-Heist will be available this month.

In Cyber Heist, Kira, your former employer, has a new top-secret job, and as a newly independent contractor how could you refuse?  Venture outside of your familiar arcology into a brand new arcology owned by the Malhorst-Gelb Group. There’s some new ground-breaking tech ripe for the taking, but you’re not the only one with their sights on the prize.

Curve Games press release

Cyber-Heist will offer both solo and co-op play, and include more than just new missions and side-quests (though it’ll have both). Also loaded into the DLC will be new weapons with the Rock Crusher and Guillotine, and a new location with the “arcology owned by the Malhorst-Gelb group”.

Get ready for more cyberpunk action in The Ascent, with Cyber-Heist this August the 18th.
