Bluehole subsidiary PUBG Corp are the team behind this year’s smash-hit PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. But Bluehole proper have announced their next game: Ascent: Infinite Realm is an MMORPG that mixes steampunk with high fantasy.

Related: here is everything we know about Ascent: Infinite Realm.

In the trailer, which you can check out above, intricate airships feature alongside fire-breathing dragons, and impressive mechs storm epic fortresses. Bluehole promise the game will be deeply customisable, with unique options for airships, five character classes, and the ability for players to create their own quests.

A:IR’s PvP mode is governed through battles between realms. A press release form Bluehole says that “in RvR, factions fight for fame and glory, taking turns to lead offensive and defensive efforts using all kinds of fantastical flying vehicles. Players can also join the fight from the ground with mechs and the use of anti-air artillery.”

If you don’t want to fight though, A:IR still seems to have a lot to offer. The trailer shows off a detailed base-building system, and several other activities, ranging from fishing to what seems to be a race down a hill featuring several players in shape-shifting barrels.

Ascent: Infinite Realm will be published by Kako Games, with a closed beta due to the first half of 2018.

Thiiiiiiiiiiiis looks aimed at Asia. I have a sneaky suspicion they would like to make some more quick money

They should really focus more on PUBG and there insanely slow development turn over, I mean they've been teasing vaulting for months now and its still not out. No wonder Fortnite is taking over.

Looks like this game is developed by kakao games and Bluehole is just a publisher though.

What engine are they using? I mean, the design aesthetics look interesting, but given their track record and the genre of this game I can already tell it's going to be an unoptimized mess. No thanks.

Hey, give it a chance. Bluehole seems to be acting just as a publisher here. The game seems to be cool and more on the sandbox side instead of yet another WoW clone, so let see what they'll come up with. I mean, the more sandbox MMOs, the better. Wurm, Ultima Online, Tibia, those are all good but mostly with minor updates because of how old they are. New ones should come to do something really cool with modern tech. We already have Worlds Adrift, we had Landmark, we have Trove, but IMO we need more.

At a first glance this doesn't look so terrible really. I mean, I don't see anything to turn me away right off the bat. I'll sign for the beta ans reserve judgement after I actually see more of it.
