The Zodiac bosses are spread across four stunning worlds, each with its own unique attacks and backstory. They’re not just there for a showdown; they’ve got their own stories and reasons for battling you.

Let’s talk about the Astral Ascent 1.0 heroes you can play:

  • Ayla: She’s the last one left from her assassin guild. Fast and deadly with her twin daggers.
  • Kiran: A tough guy who learned life the hard way. He’s all about strength and can cause shockwaves with his hits.
  • Calie: A skilled sculptor seeking freedom. She uses magical gemstones to break through enemy defenses.
  • Octave: A young fighter trained by a powerful witch, wielding ethereal guns and summoning massive weapons when needed.

Also, get ready for the ultimate showdown with The Master, the key to your escape from the astral prison. Without give away any spoilers, know that 1.0 has a final boss that is a big deal in Astral Ascent. Hibernian Workshop spent as much time creating it as we did on the three other Zodiacs combined.

Each of these characters offers a unique way to play, which keeps things interesting. And there’s more: there are 17 different endings in 1.0. They are all animated and narrated, and there’s even a new character coming in 2024.
