The Ascent: available as an Xbox platform exclusive in July.

The Ascent, an action-shooter, will be available as an Xbox platform exclusive on July 29.

The Ascent’s release date has been set for July 29, according to publisher Curve Digital, so it won’t be long until we can shoot ’em up in style. In terms of platforms, The Ascent will be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S, as well as PC.

When The Ascent is released on July 29, it will be immediately available through Xbox Game Pass on all platforms. Furthermore, the shooter will include 4K visuals at 60 frames per second, yet the press release from publisher Curve Digital only mentions the Xbox Series X as supporting both 4K and 60FPS.

If you’re not acquainted with The Ascent, it’s a 2.5D shooter that can be played solo or with up to three additional people. As one of the playable characters, you must fight your way through swarms of adversaries in a neon-lit future cityscape, gathering components and weapons along the way to improve your firepower and skills.

The Ascent is being developed by Neon Giant (a appropriate name for such a neon-themed game), a team of 12 veterans from the Gears of War and Wolfenstein series. This team of devs certainly understands what it takes to create a captivating shooter.
