The upcoming prequel reboot of the classic Descent series is heading towards its testing phase, and the developers are looking at Kickstarter backers as the testers.
After utter silence over the past year, Descent developers, Descendent Studios, have finally given hope to fans awaiting the return of the iconic FPS space title.
Check out the riveting new gameplay trailer for the game below:
The Descent Of Descent
After teaming up with publishing veterans, Little Orbit, the additional funds allowed the developers to expand the single-player campaign into a massive space adventure that will have long-time fans and newcomers at the edge of their seat.
The rebooted series will have players navigating their ships through tight caverns littered with unique puzzles both through a deep single-player campaign or in online multiplayer.
Those who purchased last year’s Descent: Underground through the Kickstarter campaign will be able to join in on the beta testing for the upcoming 2019 release.
“We began this journey in open development with gamers, and we want to launch that way too.” – Eric Peterson, CEO of Descendent Studios
