Fans of the newly popular game, PUBG also is known as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, may be eager to find out the new MMORPG that the developers are currently working on. A:IR short for Ascent: Infinite Realm, is being developed by Bluehole. Bluehole and publisher Kakao Games have set a goal of the game to be released sometime in 2018.
The game is open-world and the sky is where most of the action will be taking place, due to the aerial combat and travel. There are five classes to choose from which you can play such as a Warlord, Sorceress, Assassin, Gunslinger, and a Mystic. There is a range of exciting types of travel for players to use from like skycycles, airships, and flying mounts. (Not sure what a flying mount is but it sounds cool).
Bluehole offered this in a press release:
“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 PvP mode,” the company said. 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.”
We also have this interesting description on their website which gives a better insight into what more players can aspect from the game. It says: “Ascent: Infinite Realm mixes high fantasy with steampunk, so ready to explore an immersive world of airships and magic, fantasy and dragons! Here, gameplay is truly three dimensional; 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.”
