The Ascent, the indie cyberpunk-themed game developed by Neon Giant, has received a small patch. Patch 9 was released for PC via Steam. While it doesn’t add new content, it brings a plethora of bug fixes that should improve the gaming experience.

General Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where purchased items from the various Vendors would not show for Client Players.
  • Fixed an issue where the title takes a noticeably long time to recognize that the Player has left the lobby, which could prevent a Client Player problems trying to rejoin.
  • Fixed a potential crash after triggering the "Photomode" button and disconnecting the controller at the same time.
  • We fixed a number of stability issues around controller disconnections that could happen at various points.
  • Fixed a potential issue where Players could get trapped inside a small area next to the elevator in corpZone.
  • Resolved an issue in Local Co-op where a soft-lock could potentially happen if multiple interactions were triggered at the same time.
  • Fixed an issue where a Client Player NPC dialogue is progressed by the Host Player clicking next in a dialogue with an entirely different character.
  • Fixed some general stability issues in NG+.
  • Resolved an issue in NG+ Online Co-op where currently equipped weapons are not shown in the Player's HUD for Clients after the cutscene.
  • Fixed the issue where the animation of hammer hitting the ground of Hammerhand Larkians was missing.
  • Fixed some NG+ Tutorial display issues.
  • Minor camera fix in the Silo 86 area where the Player view could be cut off at the bottom of the screen.
  • Fixed a number of minor collision issues that could happen when using certain Augmentations.
  • Fixed a number of minor general collision issues.

The complete patch notes are available on Steam as well.

The Ascent was released on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on July 29. The game was also released on PS4 and PS5 on March 24, 2022.
