Information continues to slowly trickle out of Bluehole Studios as it toils away on its upcoming sci-fantasy MMO Ascent: Infinite Realm, and the latest tidbit is a teaser that introduces players to the massive airship Inventus. It’s more of a lore post than anything else, so there aren’t really any gameplay details to glean here, but it does suggest that players will likely use the massive flying city as a base of operations as they explore the world of AIR:
This month we are giving you a little bit of info about the Inventus, a giant airship which you will become fairly familiar with as you traverse the environments of Ascent: Infinite Realm.
The Inventus is a giant airship that serves as a city in the sky. During the invasion by the Black Heralds, the people of Nousgard realized that they would need to evacuate their beloved home before they fell to the mechanical monsters.
By utilizing the technologies learned by their ancestors past, the Nous people constructed the Inventus.
Despite the Inventus being first and foremost an evacuation ship, there is more than meets the eye. The main quest will reveal blue skies and open vast areas as you discover new lands.
The Inventus was created to provide a sense of awe and progression. We hope you enjoy flying freely in the open skies on the Inventus airship.
But if you’re hungry for something a bit meatier, don’t fret; YouTuber Ser Medieval has also uploaded a new video with a few minutes’ worth of combat footage taken from the game’s SEA version that’s currently in testing. Each of the game’s five classes gets some time in the spotlight, from the tanky, hammer-wielding Warlord to the quick-drawing, lead-blasting Gunslinger, and the video also shows off some of the fearsome foes that players will have to wipe from the face of the planet in the pursuit of experience and loot. If you want to see the game in action for yourself, you can check out the whole video just below.
