On the first anniversary of its launch, the twin-stick cyberpunk game announced the first DLC for The Ascent. CyberHeist follows the events of the main campaign and introduces new locations, a new weapon, and a series of top-secret missions that can be played alone or with friends.
After completing the main story, you can connect with your former boss, Kira, who has a mysterious new job for you. It will take you away from your home eco-environment and into a whole new eco-environment containing the latest technology owned by the Malhorst-Gelb Group.
To help tackle new challenges, you’ll have some new weapons at your disposal. Melee weapons join The Ascent’s arsenal with the Cyber Heist expansion, so you’ll be able to experiment with things like Rock Crusher and Guillotine.
The new story missions and side quests also involve talking to some new characters, and you can play cooperatively even if some members of your team are dragging their feet while completing the base campaign. As long as the player hosting the game is done, everyone in the group can explore new content.
