G-Star has come and gone and with it a whole lot of new Ascent: Infinite Realm gameplay footage from the show floor. A new compilation video with footage captured from fans offers potential Western players a look at how one of the MMO’s touted PvP battles play out.
The battle in question appears to play out in three stages, with the first seeing players engage in a chaotic aerial battle, the second with players storming a breached gate, and a third with heavy mech suits airlifted in for an attack against a core.
While the footage, understandably, doesn’t provide much context for the battle, it does offer a reasonably good look at how gameplay operates. At one point during the aerial battle, the controlling player’s small craft is boarded by an enemy player, forcing them to abandon ship and spread their wings. The footage also appears to be taken from the attacking side of the conflict as the defending team appears to continually lose ground.
The official site has promised to share additional information and official translated details as A:IR moves into closed beta in Korea. While the devs are thanking fans for their enthusiasm, they do warn of fan translations that could have inaccuracies or miss crucial information. A timeline for when these updates will come was not provided.
In the meantime, you can whet your A:IR appetite by watching the gameplay footage compilation below.
Wow, does that look like a lot of fun! It also looks like the defending team wasn’t really able to effectively defend, which is either a result of poor coordination, imbalance, or maybe just spliced footage from multiple engagements. In either case, we’re most definitely eager to see more of Ascent: Infinite Realm.
