'Descenders' (ALL) Multiplayer PC Beta Next Week

by Rainier on March 14, 2019 @ 9:26 a.m. PDT

Descenders is an extreme downhill freeriding for the modern era, with procedurally generated worlds, and where mistakes have real consequences.

Descenders throws players into the high-octane world of downhill biking, where every jump, whip and scrub will earn Rep points for you and your team - but with the risk that you might lose it all with just one badly timed landing.

A deep physics system and tight controls allow players to string together incredible trick combos, as you make your way down the mountain and attempt to reach the bottom with as few scratches as possible.

Procedurally generated worlds mean that no two runs are ever the same, with special challenge nodes to discover and nerve-racking Boss Jumps that truly sort the casuals from the pros. But linger for too long and the sun will begin to set, forcing you to ride through the night to get the job done.

The Descenders Multiplayer PC Beta is coming next week, and you can play it for free, no matter whether you own Descenders or not!

From March 21st at 12pm CET - 22nd 6pm CET, you'll be able to:

  • Encounter other players randomly throughout Career Mode
  • Start a casual lobby with other riders and friends
  • Play through the original 5 Descenders worlds together

Sign up here, and you'll receive a Steam Beta key on March 21st.

Grab your bike, pick your team, and attempt to live up to the legend of your Descender. Will you join the die-hard, trick-frenzy ranks of Team Enemy, the proficient, off-road stylings of Team Arboreal, or the high-octane, speed-is-everything Team Kinetic?

Apart from wearing your team's colors with pride, players will also receive exclusive gear from their team, and can earn special prizes if their team is top of the leaderboards at the end of each month. Meanwhile, players will be able to hang out with their team-mates in the Descenders Overworld, practicing tricks together and checking the team leaderboards, before heading out to watch each other's runs.

As you ride, whip and scrub to victory, you'll unlock Crew Members who will provide special upgrades and mutators, allowing you to hone your run to your exact specifications. With over 3.5 billion levels to explore, dozens of mutators to bag, numerous hidden nodes, and a plethora of unlockable kits, helmets, bikes and accessories, Descenders is packed with many hours of content.

Key Features:

  • Procedurally generated worlds: Take on different jumps, slopes and hillbombs every time you play
  • Freestyle bike controls: Control every subtle movement of your rider, with an in-depth physics system made for slick whips and scrubs
  • Risk vs reward: Push your rider for massive scores and combos -- but bail too many times and you might lose it all
  • Build your Rep: A fully-featured online Rep system lets you show off your worth, and earn new bikes and threads
  • Fully licensed soundtrack: We've partnered up with drum & bass label Liquicity to bring you the perfect soundtrack for hitting the mountains
  • Become the next Descender: Can you survive the game in a single run, and reach the ranks of the legendary Descenders?

Descenders is currently available on Steam Early Access and on Xbox One
