Descent Underground is a VR compatible first person action shooter which emphasizes six degrees of freedom in gameplay, where players fly through twisting caverns and labyrinthine dungeons where petty concepts like “up” and “down” lose all meaning. Descent Underground is a prequel to the original Descent, updated to take advantage of modern hardware and the powerful Unreal 4 engine, yet staying true to the original Descent’s freeform flight, arcade-style combat, and twisting, turning levels, but this is no fancy reskin. With destructible Voxel maps, customizable ships and upgradeable weapons, the only question that remains is if you can handle the vertigo-inducing gameplay?
