We've just got word from new publishing label No More Robots that its first signing will be an extreme downhill freeriding game called Descenders, which should be arriving on all consoles sometime next year - including Nintendo Switch, of course.
Descenders is being developed by none other than RageSquid, who have previously made the lovely Action Henk. 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.
The game features a fully-fledged physics system which allows players to string together incredible trick combos and Rep points, as they make your way down the mountain and attempt to reach the bottom unscathed. Descenders features procedurally-generated worlds, so no two runs are ever the same.
With a whole host of team-based community features promised, it looks like this will be one to watch out for next year. See you on the leaderboards!
Looks pretty good actually. We'll see.
The rider looks a little stiff in places, other than that this should be a good game.
Reminds me of Trials Fusion, which I love.
Game variety is always welcomed.
Hooray. If I can't have a sequel to EA's "Freekstyle", this should make a nice stand-in with potential.
Looks fun! I'm just about done holding my breath for Steep, but this will do.
Looks rad! I hope The controls won't be too fiddle. Holding the
Joy cons like a handle bar could work?
Tricky maneuvers mah dude
RageSquid is on the case. I still want an Action Henk port though
I just hope they remember to put fun over realistic in this type of game, because if it ain't fun then there's no reason to play it.
This looks really good hope it's as much fun as Downhill Domination on the ps2 still have a quick blast now and again.
Perfect for switch, variety is the spice of life
This looks good and I'll definitely pick it up if it comes out before Trials Fusion switch. I'm really hoping for Trials Fusion Deluxe to get a Switch release.
Rather have a new Tony hawk game 😁
I will be buying that
A GOOD new Tony Hawk game..... ; )
Yes! I have been waiting for a game like this to hit a Nintendo system for a good while now! Something about biking down mountains just really excites me!
F-Yeah,looks sweet,reminds of No Fear downhill mtb on ps1.
@sandman89 think you mean Skate lol
@Gs69 love that game--if this is even half as good, it'll be fantastic.
This looks great! Instant buy for me.
Oh boy does this make me miss the rush of Extreme/Action Sports games in the early 2000s...
All I can say is please please please be good and also please run well on Switch.
Looks dope. Hope they get it dialled in and don't bail at the last minute. If they nail the flow I'll be stoked. Looking forward to shredding some gnarly hills. Sick.
@timson72 I hate skate mate
I didn't think I needed this until I saw the trailer.
It looks pretty good and fast, hope the controls are tight.
Procedural means it's like the X Cup from F-Zero X.
But will there be some sort of racing mode or story/mission/challenge mode as well?
Looks good. Keeping an eye on it.
@sandman89 the controls I'm guessing?
@timson72 yes and I prefer the fast paced arcade style of Tony hawk
@sandman89 agree I didn't like the controls at first but can imagine going back now.
Yep i'll take that.
