The Ascent is at its best when you’re standing still. When you’re peering off the edge of the world, out at the neon-tinged arcology that encompasses the chaos unfurling around you. Sometimes, the camera will reel in from the sky towards some distant detail plumes of smoke twisting in the wind, gears turning beneath some towering structure and in closer to your character, who’ll be wearing an uncoordinated ensemble of whatever high-stat crap you’ve been able to scavenge from corpses.
