Ascent: Infinite Realm, also known as A:IR, is a fantasy MMORPG from noted developer Bluehole, a South Korean firm known for smash hit, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Ascent: Infinite Realm mixes high fantasy with steampunk, so ready to explore an immersive world of airships and magic, fantasy and dragons! Here, gameplay is truly three dimensional; everyone is dependent on flight to explore, travel, and conquer. In search of a new home, adventurers take to the skies using a wide selection of airships, vehicles, and flying mounts to traverse A:IR’s open, highly vertical world.
