The Ascent First Person View

The Ascent is a superb looking Cyber Punk game made in the Unreal Engine. Having taught students how to use the old Unreal Development Kit for several years in the UK I was curious to check out the graphics in more detail.

So I fired up the Universal Unreal Unlocker and had a look around the game. The game graphics are just as good in first person. It is clear however why the view is locked to top down view. The game graphics and sky dome do not extend very high above the game world and on some levels they barely extend above the clipping plain of the camera.

I made a short video of the game seen through the first person debug camera.
