Hi everyone! It’s Pip here, Marketing Manager at publisher No More Robots, and I’m here to finally announce something that many of you have asked of us: Descenders on Xbox Series X | S! We’re excited about what the new Xbox consoles are capable of and are excited to bring Descenders in the next generation.
We are also happy to announce that this summer, Descenders ” owners will be able to upgrade to a brand new, optimized version of Descenders for Xbox Series X | S free of charge via Smart Delivery. The team has worked hard to make this version packed with upgrades that players have been asking for, and we can’t wait for you to walk through all of our improved tracks with more friends than ever before!
8 Lobbies and cross-play
When we launched Descenders multiplayer, we had no idea how popular it was! It was amazing to see more and more lobbies appear and more and more groups conquer career mode together, so we decided to bring even more players into the party on Xbox.
With the Xbox Series X | S, you will be able to create lobbies for up to eight players, which is double the size of the lobby compared to the Xbox One. Now more players can travel with you to the far reaches of the volcano or whip with you on the Moon. As you will now be able to include more people in your lobbies, you will also be able to play alongside Xbox Game Pass on PC and Steam players using a brand new cross play! Get ready for more players from all over the world to join you!
From forest trails to shivering glaciers, there are beautiful environments everywhere Descenders. For the Xbox Series X | S, we wanted to use as much next-gen power as possible to make each track in the game more immersive and realistic. We’ve increased the amount of foliage (which means more trees to crash into!), Improved the quality of terrain and shade, and dramatically improved the draw distance in each world and park.
Along with all new SSAO features, greatly improved motion blur and anti-aliasing, DescendersThe graphics are crisp and clear, so it’s easier than ever to get immersed as you bombard the hills and hike the dirt trails!
Resolution and speed
With this update, Descenders on Xbox Series X | S will have two new graphics modes – a crisp 1080p, 60fps mode to make your path on our trails smoother and smoother than ever before, and a 4K, 30fps mode on Xbox Series X, and 1440p, 30fps mode on Xbox Series S, to discover each world and its breathtaking environments in the best possible resolution! Whichever mode you choose, Descenders on Xbox Series X | S really shines, and we’re so excited to see everyone hitting the trails together!
We can’t wait to release the optimized version for Xbox Series X | It’s this summer, and we hope you join us in all the 4K glory across the Highlands and beyond!
