With a pretty simple trick, you can add a free cam to The Ascent and get the feel of the first-person view in the game.

Originally launched later last month, The Ascent is an isometric action RPG set inside a dystopian, cyberpunk city, which is on the edge of chaos. The game has gone popular soon after launch, thanks to its enjoyable gameplay mechanics and incredible world design.

Probably, the only major downside of the game was the fact that it was not polished enough for PC and Xbox One at launch. Although the developers have deployed a few updates so far, the game still needs further hotfixes to become a pain-free experience.

Regardless of the issues, The Ascent is a top-notch isometric shooter that you shouldn’t miss, but what if the game were made in the first-person view? If you have already thought about it, a fan was able to add a free camera that shows the game in the first-person mode.

The Ascent First-Person Mod

Using the Universal Unreal Engine 4 Unlocker, a fan managed to add a free camera to The Ascent and recreated walking in Veles in the first-person view.

The interesting part is that the game looks absolutely stunning even in the first-person view. You might think if an isometric experience becomes first-person it could lack enough details in texture, but The Ascent will surprise you in that certain area.

Unfortunately, you can play the missions or the entire game with this mod, but if enough players show positive feedback to this, modders might be convinced to work on a fully functional first-person mod.

The Ascent is now available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. The Xbox Game Pass subscribers can play it for free.
