The Ascent is a co-op action-RPG take on cyberpunk chaos

Housemarque may have stepped away from the arcade-shooter genre, but that spirit still lives on in other games and other studios. At the Xbox Series X gameplay event today, we got an adrenaline-pumping look at The Ascent, an overhead co-op shooter set in a cyberpunk world where the big evil megacorp "that owns you and everyone" has collapsed and chaos is rising.

I was on-board with the general arcade-action vibe in the footage, but the trailer description – that it's an "action RPG" – leaves me even more curious to play this. It'll also be available on Xbox One.
