Take a look at 12 minutes of gameplay footage (yes, it's actual gameplay!) from the Xbox Series X exclusive action-RPG, The Ascent.
O.o The attention to detail... is... INSANE I love how Phil is making RPGs and Horror games on Xbox a prority. Regarding this particular game: Day One!
Day one for everyone, im buying 30 xbox series x because why not, its the internet i can say anything without showing proof.
The hate Hahahahha
@Neutralgamer His name really suits him well doesn't it haha
I applaud you for the excellent post! Well played.
Ps4 has this game! It's call Alienation ;-)
it does look great
Super interested in the game and day 1 for me as I love twin stick shooters and I love the setting and colour pallet but the games clearly alpha and clearly in need of lot of work still, animations at the end, performance issues and little skips or jumps and a lot of signs you couldn't read as too pixalated so again more work needed but it does look good and right up my street. Not bashing but clearly alpha but very promising
Loving what I'm seeing here. This looks right up my alley.
I agree. I actually love the look of this game.
This man attacks Godfall at every turn but this game impresses him wowwwww 😱
Looks really fun! I’ll be right there with you on day one
It does look good. Alright, alright, I could play that.
Ok that does look pretty good.
To be honest, it looks like a VERY bad Alienation remake.
I was going to say Alienation but you beat me to it. Not that there's anything wrong with this genre, but I don't need next gen hardware for this.
Reminded me of the game before that, dead nation, both great games though, this one should be fun too.
Obscure Really? “Attention to detail is INSANE”? Either you are easy to satisfy or I’m losing my eyesight.
@StormSnooper "Really? “Attention to detail is INSANE”? Either you are easy to satisfy or I’m losing my eyesight." Or Digital Foundry´s John Linneman and Alex Battaglia should be fired and replaced by experts such as you. 24:05 https://www.youtube.com/wat... I would suggest you to see you eye doctor, but I guess you know better than he do. S/
Wow man relax.
Seems it wouldnt be a new gen without a twin stick shooter to go with it. I remember playing a lot of Geometry Wars at the start of last gen and just as much Super Stardust Ultra this gen.
Resogun for me! Platinumed that baby.
Are you sure it is a twin stick shooter? Isn't tagged such on Steam. I was thinking this is more like a sci-fi Diablo. I could be wrong though. https://store.steampowered....
Look at it's gameplay what do you mean are you sure lool??? What else could it possibly be!?
@PrinceAli Didn't I answer that question before you even asked it? " I was thinking this is more like a sci-fi Diablo."
You are correct. My understanding is also that it is sci fi dungeon crawler
My understanding is that it is not a twin stick shooter and that is actually a dungeon crawler like Diablo.
This is an RPG. And probably twin stick controls. I love twin sticks and RPGs. In the XB presentation this one most interested me because it wasn't something I was expecting.
The setting, aesthetics, and overall presentation looks incredible but it plays like a twin-stick shooter with co-op and I don't really like that if this truly an RPG. I can't really tell if it's a Diablo-like game or what is really going on. That dark and metal Si-FyberPunk style is badass though.
The gameplay is so stuttery and choppy this proves that all the ssd hype is just pure marketing bullshit.
My base ps4 can run this, maybe even 360 and ps3.
No it can't.
Dissidia Could I ask why a base PS4/Xbox one couldn't run this? What's so next gen about this gameplay demo that isn't possible on current consoles ? Not saying it doesn't look good but I don't think this is the type of game that will make people say oh wow this is next gen game
@neutralgamer1992 The game is releasing on the base xbox one too so of course base ps4 can run this so I'm assuming he's must be responding to the ps3/360 part of the comment if not then he smoking something
"Could I ask why a base PS4/Xbox one couldn't run this?" I think Dissidia's point is that it can't because it won't be available on PS4.
You ok bro?
PS exclusive feature of this game is being able to find The Ascent on the PS store. First person to find it there gets it free. Start searching.
360 and ps3 wouldn't be able to handle that lighting at all.
Not at 4k 60, the series x will run it at those settings I bet
you do live up to your name..
Such disingenuous nonsense. Nobody could possibly believe that indies and smaller scale games would just disappear, or that the ushering in of next-gen means these types of games will or should fall out of existence. Also, for what this is, it's fantastically detailed and visually impressive overall.
Not at the level of detail and fidelity. And, I think most games will be cross-gen this time around anyhow. XBO and PS4 are both still very capable consoles. They just don't hit 4K without going to Pro or X versions. And the Pro and X versions probably can't do the detail we see here.
Lol when COVID-19 has driven you from mad to insane!!!
I love twin stick shooters with a Cyberpunk feel.
This gameplay video releasing now sure seems like a reaction...
1. No it isn't. IGN First's are planned way ahead. They didn't just suddenly throw this together at the last minute. 2. Even *if* you were right, why would it matter? People wanted next gen gameplay and now they have it.
Chop So you are saying fox is wrong but than you said he could be right so his comment stands ? I am sure it's so hard to set up a IGN first 12 minute demo here is how hard it is IGN: do you want to show gameplay Developer: yes here demo video IGN: let's publish this video N4G Xbox fans: amazing only possible on next gen
IGN XB20/20 recap video said they have seen and have extended gameplay demos from the games (questioning MS's reasoning behind not using them), more than likely they were not allowed to release until now, post show. Either way, bitch there wasnt gamepay, release some gameplay, bitch about the reasoning behind releasing it.... People love to moan.
@neutral I didn't say he could be right. I was being hypothetical. He is absolutely wrong because as I clearly stated IGN First's are planned far ahead.
Man, neutral, your interpretation skills are just nonexistent. Then, after you're done misinterpreting everything, you invariably make the obligatory "xbox fans" blah blah blah comment. Tighten those screws.
The Ascent already had plenty of actual gameplay in the presentation where AC had none so..
Yeah, you can smell the damage control xbox is trying to do. And by showing a game that look like a mobile game... Honestly, how low have xbots standards got? If this was a PS5 game people would be writing articles left and right on how doomed sony was.
You sound like a hurt ex girlfriend. Grow up. The fact that you call people “xbots” shows your true colors. And all that “if this was a ps5 game” crap is just made up bs out your mouth. In fact if this was a ps5 game this thread wouldn’t be over run with haters.
@-Foxtrot "This gameplay video releasing now sure seems like a reaction..." To this day, Naughty Dog couldn´t give us that TLOU 2 PAX demo because it´s not as simple as people think, yet, somehow, The Ascent devs had no problems puling that magical hat trick to give IGN a demo to "react" the day after Inside Xbox. S/
Are you being sarcastic?
Looks and plays amazing. Niceee...
The Nintendo Switch can probably run this game
I think it looks good but I don't think a game with that sort of camera angle can really show much of what a machine can do (not saying it doesn't look good) there will come other games like action adventure and FPS that will really show what these next gen consoles are capable of Because of no E3 I guess IGN will do doing a lot of these IGN first sort gameplay
Ya a PS3 could run that.
Powwa of da Cell
Now this is something I can get behind. Even though it looks like it’s getting played by a 12 year old girl. But I think this is just what interests gamers most is game play whether you’re an Xbox guy or PlayStation. Pretty sure we can all agree to that. If you want to share a trailer do so discretely on your channels or for a television commercial. Save resources and market more strategically this way you don’t get shunned for showing a bunch of trailers that gamers are not hungry for.
I have played mobile games that look just like this. So much for the 12 Teraflops.
exactly !, why MS brag about so much power and then these are their offerings at moment, don't have too much hope for their exclusive game presentation in July still let's see what happens, at this point their damaging a lot their next gen xbox console with this kind of presentations.
You're right, games like Horizon Zero Dawn makes this game look last Gen more like
Funny how a lot of sci-fi future games have us interacting with aliens and shooting laser guns and yet they are always using inferior neon lighting with ballasts which is almost obsolete in the 21st century already
Releasing gameplay after the 20/20 event. Is this a way too intellectual move I am dumb to understand?
IGN First, bright red. And yes, You are.
I like these arcade/lower budget shooter games which reminds me of the games Ruiner & Alien/Dead Nation.
