The Ascent: Infinite Realm closed beta is on in Korea and a lot of Western players are likely hungry for more details on just how the steampunk-fantasy MMORPG functions. Our friends at Steparu have kindly stepped up with some A:IR dungeon footage from within the game’s test.
The video in question is from within a level 20 dungeon in the game and comes from the viewpoint of the Assassin class. Obviously context for the dungeon isn’t available since the UI is in Korean, but there is a dragon battle at the end which can grant interested players a peek at instanced content, combat, and at least one boss fight in the game.
According to the video’s description, the complete dungeon run took about 20 minutes to complete, though the video below is edited down to just over 7 minutes. Those who are interested in seeing a full run are invited to check out Steparu’s YouTube channel. In the meantime, you can take in some dragon stabbing goodness below.
There are a lot of similarities one can draw from this footage. Talking amongst ourselves we got a sense of Final Fantasy XIV dungeon encounters while combat looked similar to games like Revelation Online. We’re curious to know your own thoughts on this footage so be sure to share them below.
