Descent Is Currently Available for Pre-Order

Descent will launch on the PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch in early 2019, announced the game’s publisher, Little Orbit, on Thursday. A PC beta for “early supporters” of the game is planned to start in November 2018, according to the publisher.

Descent is officially described as “the first truly 3D shooter” and will have 15 campaign missions, several multiplayer modes (such as PvP), four-player co-op, and up to 20 unlockable & customizable ships.

The game is currently available for pre-order for the PC, Linux, and Mac. Here are the pre-order bonuses (which are also available for those who bought Descent: Underground during its Kickstarter or Early Access phase):

  • PC Beta starting [later] this year
  • A custom version of the Generation III “Viola” ship w/ exclusive paint job
  • Special PC Beta challenges to unlock exclusive pre-season cosmetic rewards
  • Multipass upgrade for multiplayer seasons 1 & 2 with additional gameplay challenges
  • “Secret Missions” DLC with additional single-player missions, landing later in 2019

“This has been more than a 3 year journey for the Kickstarter backers, Early Access players, and fans who all made this game possible,” said Matthew Scott, the CEO of Little Orbit, in a press release. “We are excited to begin rolling out the Descent beta for players later this year.”

“With Descent, we are reimagining a classic franchise, while still staying true to the core gameplay that made it one of the most popular games of the 90s,” he also said.
