Bluehole is working with Kakao Games to create a new MMO titled Ascent: Infinite Realm. or simply A:IR. There are not many details as of yet, the debut trailer was released today along with concept art. A:IR appears to be a steam punk inspired fantasy that will allow players to take to the skies with their own wings and a variety of flying mounts. The trailer shows off a number of classic MMO activities such as exploration, crafting, and even some combat, but the game is still in early development. Check out the first trailer below.
A:IR looks very impressive with stunning vistas and a variety of machines and monsters which brings an interesting aesthetic to the gameplay. Players will be able to “take to the skies” to both explore and for combat which adds some cool verticality to this MMO. The verticality is an unusual and really interesting thing about A:IR. According to the game’s website “Vehicles and mounts serve as transportation, strategic weapons in PvP, and a medium for player cooperation. Airships of all sizes and various flying mounts will provide you with the ultimate airborne battle experience.”
