Good morning! Who wants some genuinely good news for the MMORPG genre? Great. Black Desert publisher Kakao is bringing Ascent: Infinite Realm westward. That’d be the Bluehole MMO codenamed Project M as revealed at G-Star this year. The studios are touting the game’s open world, steampunk-cum-fantasy setting, and RvR aerial combat.
“Ascent: Infinite Realm takes place in a high fantasy steampunk world where machines and magic rule and everyone is dependent on flight to explore, travel, and conquer. In search of a new home, adventurers take to the skies using a wide selection of airships, vehicles, and flying mounts to traverse A:IR’s open, highly vertical world.”
Beta testing is expected in the first half of 2018, localized for English, German, and French.
