Neon Giant’s new title was released yesterday July 29 both in digital stores and Game Pass. The Ascent has received very good reviews in general, both in the press and among users, thanks to its excellent visual level, its cyberpunk setting, or its gameplay that draws from the Action RPG. Some users had a doubt about a graphical feature of the title on consoles, and Neon Giant has had to clarify that The Ascent does not have Ray-Tracing on Xbox X Series X|S, leaving the PC version as the only one that has.
In an interview, the creative director of the title, Tor Frick, confirmed that the only version that has the Ray-Tracing option is the PC version, leaving out of the equation the Xbox consoles, both current and previous generation.
Even with the lack of this option, the Xbox versions look great, and the omission of Ray-Tracing won’t be much mourned by Xbox users. The Ascent is now available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, also available on Game Pass.
