Welcome to 1.0 - MULTIPLAYER IS HERE

1.0 is finally here! We're so excited to share the complete Descenders experience with you and we cannot wait to see you share it with your friends!

First off, a big thank you so much to all the folks who've been watching the game progress since we first launched into Early Access - your kindness, your passion for the game and your sick runs have been keeping our fires lit and pushed us through, we could not have done this without you!

So, what's new?



MULTIPLAYER IS HERE!
Find other players from around the world in the new hub and career modes, or join up with some friends in a casual lobby! Race down the steepest tracks, chill out at the skate park or play a game of hide and seek, the nine worlds are now all yours to play with however you and your friends want to!

NEW WORLDS
Mastered Peaks? Got that Volcano run down? Then it's time to jump into the FOUR NEW WORLDS complete with their own boss jumps! These are testing environments with some difficult obstacles, so make sure to bring your A-game! You can even get practising in the BRAND NEW HUB!

MORE GEAR
It's time for a new colour scheme. Trust us. Maybe even a new handlebar companion, complete with totally not annoying noises. Perhaps a community built item (shoutout to the amazing designers in our Discord whose items made the cut <3) or a female rider? Don't worry, we've got you covered!

To celebrate all this new hotness, Descenders will be 25% for a whole week! There's never been a better time to grab some friends and jump in!

We're excited to ride alongside you and see you all at the bottom. This has been a wild ride for us, and we're glad you're right there with us.

May 7 -- Descenders 1.0 -- The Multiplayer Update



It's here. Version 1.0. Multiplayer. May 7.

After 15 months, and more than half a dozen major updates, Descenders is ready to leave Early Access. Thanks so much for taking this journey with us, and prepare yourselves for what the full Descenders experience has in store for you!

Here's what you can expect when The Multiplayer Update drops on May 7.

8 Player Online Multiplayer

Imagine this: You boot up Descenders, into the brand new central hub (more on this below). All of a sudden, a bike goes flying by... then another... and another!

When you boot up Descenders, and anytime you go back to the main lobby, your hub will be filled with other players. You can ride around with them, check out high scores, explore the outskirts of the hub, whatever you like.

When you dash off into a Career session, you won't be alone either. You'll encounter random riders, playing the same seed as you in real-time. There are no collisions so you can't smash into each other, but you can race through the world and explore together.

Lobby Up With Friends



If you're not a fan of stranger danger, you can choose to start a Casual Lobby with friends. Invite your friends via Steam, and they can join up with you, and race through any of the worlds in the game.

It's up to you whether you race, explore, compete for score, mess around together, see if you can line up 7 riders and jump over all of them...

How you play Descenders with your friends is up to you!

Four Brand New Worlds

Was five worlds not enough for you? How about four brand new worlds you've never played before?

Introducing CareerPlus Mode. When you've collected enough Rep, you'll unlock this mode which essentially gives you a whole new Career to play through, complete with four new worlds.

Check out the gifs for a sneak peek. And speaking of new areas...

New Central Hub



Whenever you boot up the game or finish a run, you'll be booted into the new central hub area. It's much, much bigger than the original hub, and features a bunch of really cool areas to explore.

You can still find The Shed, and your team's tent, but you'll also find other useful areas, like a giant leaderboard that updates to show your best scores.

Loads of Other Stuff

New music! New options! New sounds! New items! New bikes! New achievements! Play as a man or woman! New everything!

When the 1.0 Update hits on May 7, Descenders is going to feel like a very different game -- and we can't wait to share it with you.

See you all next week!

Love

About This Game


From the developers of Action Henk, Descenders is a fast-paced extreme downhill biking game that's easy to pick up, but difficult to master.

A Modern Take on an Extreme Sport

  • 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
  • Rogue-Bike: Earn special mutators each time you play, and work out which abilities work best for your riding style
  • 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?

Pick a Team, Become a Legend

In Descenders, your team is your life. When you pick a side -- Enemy, Arboreal or Kinetic -- you'll be bound together with other players who choose the same side as you.



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?

  • Wear your team's colors and apparel with pride, and receive exclusive team gear
  • Exclusive prizes are awarded to the team with the most Rep
  • Gain access to your team's exclusive channel on the Descenders Discord server
