Bluehole Studios, the developers of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, one of the most popular and most played games of 2017, have revealed details about their latest upcoming title. Bluehole’s upcoming release, Ascent: Infinite Realm, is a fantasy game published by Kakao Games.
Kakao revealed further details about the game, stating an AIR beta will launch in the first half of 2018, and says the following about its combat:
“Vehicles and mounts in A:IR serve more than just the purpose of transportation; they will also provide adventurers with the ultimate battle experience: A:IR’s Realm vs Realm (RvR) PvP mode.
In RvR, factions fight for fame and glory, taking turns to lead offensive and defensive efforts using all kinds of fantastical flying vehicles. Players can also join the fight from the ground with mechs and the use of anti-air artillery to fight airborne threats―or initiate ground based aerial attacks depending on the map and strategy.
Various strategic weapons such as cannons, mines and attack buffs are at each faction’s disposal to tip the balance in their favour. The combination of ground-based and aerial combat makes each fight strategically challenging and dynamic.”
Bluehole also released a 5 minute long reveal trailer of its upcoming title.
