Descent reboot coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Switch
New trailers for the six-degrees-of-freedom space shooter.
Six-degrees-of-freedom space shooter Descent, a reboot of the 1994 game of the same name, will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch in addition to the previously announced PC, Mac, and Linux versions, developer Descendent Studios announced.
Pre-orders are available now and include access to a PC beta starting later this year, a custom version of the Generation III “Viola” ship with an exclusive paint job, special PC Beta challenges to unlock exclusive pre-season cosmetic rewards, multipass upgrade for multiplayer seasons one and two with additional gameplay challenges, and “Secret Missions” downloadable content with additional single-player missions due out later in 2019.
Users who purchased a copy of Descent, previously titled Descent: Underground, during its Kickstarter or Steam Early Access phase will have access to the PC beta and receive the full game. All PC pre-order bonuses advertised by publisher Little Orbit will also be awarded to early supporters.
Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
Descent is reborn! Blast into classic six-degrees-of-freedom action-reimagined for a new generation using Unreal Engine 4!
Earth starves- resources dwindle, governments fall, and the last shreds of human civilization now belong to ruthless megacorporations. Mankind’s survival depends on water and minerals from deep space. Brave pilots fight deep within asteroids- their triumphs and tragedies broadcast back to Earth as entertainment… and a way to distract the teeming masses from the grumbling of their empty bellies.
Fly your way in 20 different ships with distinct roles and play styles. Customize them with noses, wings, skins, paint jobs, and a forest of tech tree upgrades. Deep dive into Descent‘s immersive single-player campaign or prove yourself in a variety of pulse-pounding multiplayer modes.
