  • Jupiter and Europa await
  • Dynamic music and variations
  • Improved targeting indicators for in range and on target
  • Improved mouse control
  • Shields now regenerate, so you can break away from combat and recover
  • In game tally board
  • Your ship’s weapon no longer hits instantly. You’ll need to learn to lead your fire
  • Guns cycle x3 faster, but each plasma bolt does 1/3 damage
  • Warning indicator when on low health

In order to partake in the event, just go to the official Age of Ascent site and when the countdown timer reaches zero, the game will load automatically.

There is no download, no sign-up and no commitment. It will be a simple live public demo of player-versus-player battles that are at the core of the game.
