Age of Ascent is a sandbox space combat sim that gives new meaning to the term “massively multiplayer”, with thousands of players able to take part in gigantic battles within a single universe.
Previously featured on Alpha Beta Gamer way back in 2014 Age of Ascent is a massively multiplayer space sim with a player driven economy, deep strategy and mind-blowingly huge battles between thousands of players. It takes place in the year 2176, where humanity has been forced to abandon Earth and build a civilization in space. You’ll now try to carve out a life for yourself in the stars as you explore, trade, forge alliances and take part in epic space battles.
Most MMO’s do a bit of a disservice to the term “massively multiplayer”, as you only ever get to see or play in the same area as a tiny fraction of the actual player-base. In Age of Ascent you’ll be able to play with (and against) EVERYBODY, including people playing on different platforms. It’s pretty impressive and it’s an incredible sight to see in person, with thousands of players’ laser-fire filling the screen.
When you sign up for the Age of Ascent Beta you’ll be able to download the game and access your hangar right away, but to join in the real fun you’ll need to turn up at
