In late 2020, CD Projekt Red released the long-awaited Cyberpunk 2077 to widespread disappointment. Mired by bugs and performance issues, the game simply wasn’t ready. Fast-forwarding to this summer, developer Neon Giant and Curve Digital have just released the cyberpunk sleeper hit action RPG The Ascent exclusively on Xbox and PC. By all accounts, Curve’s cyberpunk game seems to have gotten right most of the things that CD Projekt Red’s got wrong. Unfortunately, The Ascent is not without its own bugs, especially in co-op.
