‘Descent’ Reboot Mines 90s Nostalgia While Updating Original Trilogy

For those who might have forgotten (or were too young to enjoy them), Parallax’s “Descent” trilogy added six degrees of freedom, creating twists and turns throughout a number of increasingly complex and hostile asteroids.

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.

Prepare for Descent.
