Ascent gameplay PS5 vs Xbox
“Formerly an Xbox console exclusive, The Ascent is finally available for all PlayStation 4/PlayStation 5 consoles. Oliver Mackenzie tests all versions, stacking them up against the Xbox experience. The Ascent might now be a year old – but the port to PlayStation is excellent and the game itself is well worth checking out.”
“The Ascent is presented from an isometric view overlooking the character(s). It is a twin-stick shooter. It includes the ability to aim both high and low on enemy targets, allowing the player to differentiate between shooting enemies closer or further away. This mechanic is key to the game’s cover system, allowing the player to aim at enemies over the top of the props in the environment.
The player can fully customize their character’s appearance, and can augment their character with cyberware upgrades to get new skills and abilities. Players also have an upgradeable cyberdeck device, which they can use to gain access or “hack” into previously locked areas and loot certain chests.”
