What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“In order to adapt and polish the additional content and features we’re planning to add with the community feedback. Early Access is one of the best tools for that and we think we’ll make the game better altogether.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Early Access will last between 3 to 6 months, depending on how much feedback we receive and how long it takes to implement them.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to add:

• New multiplayer FFA maps

We expect the PVP side of the game to already feature a high level of replayability (considering the inherent nature of PVP games). But we’d like to feature more maps anyway. Not only will it renew the game experience, it will also expand the competitive aspect of the game by providing an extra layer of map knowledge.

• 6 players FFA

We want to expand the player limit of FFA mode from 4 players up to 6.

• New time attacks maps

To extend the replayability of the solo-mode, we plan to add several new 1-player, time-attack maps. We want our maps to challenge players hard enough so they can join the fray in multiplayer!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently features:

  • 1 player time attack mode and map
  • 4 players FFA mode
  • 1 FFA map
  • 6 different handcrafted weapons
  • 10 different skins

With this base content we deem the core game experience worthy of your interest as one of the primary content of the game is an awesome and entertaining combat experience.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The final game will be more expensive than the Early Access depending on the amount of content we add over the course of EA.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will monitor and gather players and community feedback and update the game accordingly.”

About This Game

The Burning Descent is an intuitive, fast-paced competitive VR shooter in which you take the role of mercenaries battling in a deathmatch arena.

Each intense round gives you five minutes to frag enemies and ramp up your score.

At the end of the fight the mercenary with the highest score is declared the best fighter in the arena!
