Hi guys!

It's pretty exciting time for us. After quite some time of development, we are ready to share with you guys the latest multiplayer stable build for Ascend, and we would like you guys to try it out, as we really would love to get feedback from you.

MAP - SKYPARK

Here's some images for the map you guys will be fighting in. It started out as green garden park on top of rooftops but has since gone through multiple iteration and is now more of a warehouse space. The middle path will be a market area, with tight office spaces at the side for flanking. By no means complete yet as I am sure we will iterate it a few more times and there's bound to be big sweeping changes.

Feel free to give it a test run and as always, we welcome your feedback, comments, critiques and suggestions as we need those to improve the game! We have provided an .exe for Windows, and a webplayer version.

Keybind

  • WASD - Movement
  • Space - Jump
  • Left Shift - Run/Dash
  • C - Crouch
  • V - Toggle Third Person View (Experimental)
  • Number keys 1-9 - Selects Weapons and Neural Kinetics
  • Left Mouse - Fire Weapon
  • Right Mouse - Zoom
  • R - Reload Weapon
  • Mouse Scroll - Select Next/Previous Weapon

Instruction

  1. Download and extract both the AscendMPTest Data folder, andAscendParkourTest.exe.
  2. Double click AscendMPTest.exe to run the game.

Known Issues

  • The neural kinetic powers are broken/ has 100 ammo. It was done as a proof of concept and we left it in for you guys to test out. It's by no way complete, but we had fun blinking around!
  • Weird / missing animation especially for firstperson. Will be tackling this issue in the future.
  • No melee - planned for future
  • Currently no way to change the keybinding.
  • Particles and effects can get heavy, might cause crashes on rare occassion.
Ascend Public Test
  • Alternatively, you can play straight om your browser with the link below


(requires Unity Webplayer)

Thanks for checking us out!

Hi there, thanks for the feedback! I agree, the blink/ teleportation skill is very buggy, and I wanted to leave it out at first. But our testers really liked being able to teleport all over the place and I thought of leaving it in for fun.

We will aim to squash the bugs and make it more user friendly.

Just played both the demos, It's awesome! I love the gun fire (but you could keep it to 3 guns) I love the shield thing, the parkour is cool but you could work on it, I kept getting stuck in a wall or an open doorway, so a suicide button would be useful. the character looks awesome, I always liked helmets of that design. Over all I think it's gonna be great!

Hi dmcsebatian,

Thanks for trying it out! The planned is to have only one primary weapon, and one secondary weapon. But we would like you guys to try out all the weapons we have implemented so far.

Will definitely work more on the parkour, especially indoors.
Good suggestion on the suicide button.

Ok I'm gonna make some points based on gameplay video
First the first gun took a long time to kill that guy and it appeared to be no reticle? Also the gameplay speed is VERY fast. Now I do understand the soldiers are somewhat suped up but for gameplay purposes this makes me worried. You exhausted a lot of your clip in the first kill so in a 8 v 8 this becomes a problem. The scope looked kind of useless when everyone is moving so fast.

Kills took long time, a lot of clip was burned with most of the kills and shield only adds to that. With the gameplay speed being so fast just raises an eyebrow is all. Encounters usually don't last long in FPS games with the usual being 2 seconds at most in close range. However the scoped automatic part(:48-56) lasted 8 seconds in close range when someone was using sub machine gun. That is ok if it was only a dueling game(1v1) but assuming this will be team deathmatch that poses a problem. Game looks great btw I have high hopes for it. I'm being very critical on purpose, this can all make for great team combat for all I know. Won't know for sure until alpha. :) My Regards

Hey there! Thanks for the feedback! Really appreciate that you took your time to write this. I do agree, that part of the video I was supposed to be dead, and I thought I lucked out.

Looking back at it, it seems to be one of the obscure bugs we are facing, hopefully we can fix that before the public test. We are still in the progress of tweaking and hopefully the public test will give us an even more accurate data and opinions from you. Hopefully you will join us in the public test?
