What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Descenders is already a sizeable, solid experience in its current form -- if we hadn't labelled it Early Access, you might think it was already the complete package! Because this is a game with a strong community focus, we want to bring players in to help shape the final direction in which we take development of the game. Early Access allows us to take feedback from our players, and build on the features and content that our community truly wants.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6-9 months”

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

“Throughout Early Access we plan to build on top of the current experience and inject more features, including content and social elements, as well as providing players with more unlockables and secrets to discover. We're talking new bikes, kits, worlds, tweaks, tricks, and more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As mentioned, Descenders is already a big game -- you'll find a breadth of features from day one, including a full single-player experience from start to finish, a dense rep/levelling system, unlockable kits and bikes, online leaderboards and competitions, unlockable shortcuts, team sponsorships, and a whole lot more.”

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

“The price will not change when the game launches out of Early Access.”

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

“The community will consistently drive the evolution of Descenders -- community feedback is the entire reason why we've chosen to label the game "Early Access". With each new update to the game, we'll be watching what the community is asking for and desires, and we'll be working with our players to make Descenders as great as it can be.”

Next Big Update Very Soon: Brings Team Objectives, Daily Challenge and More



Hey everyone!

The next Descenders is coming to Steam in less than 2 weeks (note that the next Xbox update will be next month, and encompass two PC updates in one). Here are some of the features you can expect:

Teams Rework

Up to now, the team you pick doesn't make a great deal of difference to how you play the game. With the next update, there will be daily objectives to complete that will be team-specific, and will earn you additional Rep and special team gear.

New Secret Level

By now you've probably found the Construction Yard in Highlands. With the next update, there will also be a brand new, secret level to find hidden somewhere else. What will it be? Where will it be? You'll have to wait for the update to find out, but all we'll say for now is -- it's quite different to anything you've played in Descenders before...

Daily Challenge

The next update will finally introduce the Daily Challenge to Descenders. Every day, every player will be given the same set of levels, and you'll have just one run to get the biggest Session Rep score that you can. There will be daily leaderboards for every Daily Challenge, so you can track how well you're doing each day compared to everyone else.



Session Markers in Freeride Mode

You asked for Session Markers in Freeride Mode, so here they come. You'll be able to plop down a marker on a level, and then restart from that position whenever you like.

Bonus Objectives Rework

Right now, you are told your Bonus Objective on the world map, and have to pick a level that matches what you are required to do. However, we've found this sytem is a little confusing, especially for new players. With the new update, the Bonus Objective will be automatically generated based on the level you pick, and will always be completable.

This update is coming in the next couple of weeks -- we'll let you know when!

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
  • 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?

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
