Descendent Studios, celebrates the GOG.com #release of Descent: Underground. While this is a fresh build for all users with #newgameplay. Things such as radar-expanding Sentinel Orbs, energy transfer, and more! Codenamed “Avalanche”. Hence this #patch also includes several seasonal asset changes for the holidays.
“We’re very happy to bring Descent: Underground to the millions of great gamers who play on GOG,” said Descendent CEO Eric “Wingman” Peterson. “The team at GOG.com has been very helpful and we welcome them to join us in the mines.”
But there’s a catch:
Yes, we have Linux on descendentstudios.com and Steam. Because the GOG Galaxy client is not yet available on Linux, we are holding off on advertising a Linux build there. At lease until they have one and/or we have more offline content for Linux users to enjoy.
If someone purchases at descendentstudios.com, they can get a Steam key. Similarly, if someone buys on Steam, they can link their account to descendentstudios.com. We are working on this for GOG, but we’ve hit some technical hurdles that need to be overcome.
This release also adds deployable Scramblers to jam enemy radar, a tool that lets the “Warlock” engineer ship siphon energy from enemies and give it to team members, and many other improvements to the player experience. More information is available in the patch notes:
As a game in development, Descendent frequently updates the game to add new features and gameplay, as with this release. The game already features a number of multiplayer competitive and cooperative game modes, among them a hoard-style “Corporate War” team mode, a horde-style “Survival” mode, and a tongue-in-cheek capture-the-flag mode called “Miner Mayhem”. Single-player “Survival” and “Vs. Bots” modes allow offline play in advance of the upcoming storyline campaign.
Descent: Underground storefront has a substantial discount off the final retail price. The Early Access version of Descent: Underground is on sale throughout the holidays for 50% off and on DescentUnderground.com.
