Description: The Ascent is a Free-Roaming highly immersive virtual reality experience harnessing the power of under-floor bass-shakers, haptic suits, smart-plugs and gun stocks. With additional hardware, The Ascent brings you and your team right into the game with tailored special effects: feel the ground beneath your feet shake when enemies approach, feel the grasp of your enemy with tailored haptic body feedback, feel the air rush over your head with smart-plug climate control.

Designed for VR from the ground up, The Ascent is a premium VR experience where you and up to four friends work together to clear the FuriCorp research facility of its infestation. Bespoke Boss’s have special abilities that shake the ground beneath you, an intuitive weapon and healing system allow players to get into the action fast without complex controls. In multiplayer mode, a detailed administration UI make running the game a breeze, where every aspect of the game is controlled from a central server. In single-player mode put on your wireless headset or backpack PC and face the challenge alone over 5 terrifying difficulty levels.

Review: Once you understand that this game is about a free-roaming franchise you might consider the £999 price to be a little acceptable. But then you read that this game is NOT for commercial use in Ireland or UK! For that high price you get terrible graphics, only 5 levels and you can’t use it to open your own VR arcade. Yep, its way overpriced and pointless to all but a few people. None of those people are basic VR players like you and me.
