In recent days we reported to you about teases from The Ascent developer Neon Giant, that DLC was incoming for their popular 2022 cyberpunk-inspired title. Now the word is out, and it’s official, DLC is on the way! The Ascent‘s DLC, titled Cyber-Heist, will be arriving for the game imminently, August 18th to be exact.
In a press release Neon Giant and publisher Curve Digital say about the coming expansion:
“The Ascent: Cyber Heist is set after the base game’s main story and is accessible for those who’ve completed the main campaign and want to take on a new contract for a top-secret mission. Continue the story either solo or co-op with friends in a range of all new main missions and exciting side quests. Players can blast or smash their way through with brand new weapons, including advanced melee combat, in a new never explored before location.
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.
Solo or in co-op with your friends, take on new challenging missions, explore brand new environments, fight your way against new enemies, and experience new ways of fighting using melee weapons!”
The DLC promises a continuation of the story, solo or in co-op, new weapons, new overworld locations to visit, new main, and side quests, and will be launching at quite a fair price of £7.99/€9.99/$9.99USD.
