The Ascent, a cyberpunk looter-shooter coming to Xbox and PC, will be released on July 29 – and will come to Xbox Game Pass at launch.

Coming to Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, the game can be pre-ordered now for $29.99 (other regional pricing not available at time of writing). You can also check out brand new gameplay in the video below:

We got our hands on the early stages of the action-RPG, calling it a “dash of Diablo, with a healthy dose of twin-stick shooter”. We also made clear to point out its cyberpunk visual credentials: “If the developers had acquired the Blade Runner license for this game, they wouldn’t have to change a thing aside from the name. It’s really, really potent from a visual standpoint, and I like that about it.”

If you want a closer look at that cyberpunk dystopia, make sure to check out the gallery of new screenshots below:

The Ascent was originally billed as an Xbox Series launch game, but suffered a delay shortly before next-gen consoles arrived. We’ve previously described the game as looking like Diablo-meets-Judge-Dredd, and named it one of the standout Xbox exclusives coming this year.
