Descent: Underground – Descent Reboot – Gets Kickstarter Campaign

Descendent Studios has launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new Descent title called Descent: Underground. Descent: Underground will be powered by Unreal Engine 4, will pack multiple types of customizable ships, will feature upgradable weapons and sensors with richly-detailed tech trees, and will offer destructible voxel maps with new power-ups.

In addition, the team promised to release mod tools for its title so that players can create their own maps.

Descendent Studios aims to raise $600K in total (so far it has raised $130K) and has 30 days left in order to hit that goal.

Here are some of the game’s key features:

  • Six-Degrees-Of-Freedom Action – fly and fry foes while zipping in and out of the dizzying confines of asteroids
  • Balanced First-Person Ship Combat and Resource Gathering – choose from eight unique ship types, each one showcasing a different play style
  • A Twenty-First Century Update – Unreal Engine 4 , top-flight graphics, rich design, and a modern twist on Descent’s classic multiplayer modes
  • Go Home a Hero – annihilate your opponents, gather desperately needed resources, bring home the bacon
