Descenders, the extreme downhill freeriding game from development studio RageSquid, is now available on Steam — and will be coming exclusively to Xbox Game Preview soon on Xbox One.
Published by UK label No More Robots, 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 is now available on Steam for PC, Mac and Linux on February 9 for $24.99. And announcing today, Descenders will launch exclusively on Xbox Game Preview very soon. Xbox Game Preview is a way for our fans to preview and purchase work-in-progress digital titles, participate in the development process and help developers make Xbox One games the best they can be.

What to expect from Descenders.
A deep physics system and full controller support allow players to string together incredible trick combos, as you make your way down the mountain and attempt to reach the bottom with as few scratches as possible.
Procedurally generated worlds mean that no two runs are ever the same, while nerve-racking Boss Jumps truly sort the casuals from the pros. There are no upgrade modifiers and power-ups in Descenders — instead, players must progress through skill alone, if they want to lead their team to glory, and become the next legendary Descender.
Post-launch, players can expect regular updates to the game, with new tweaks, bikes, kits, challenges, modes, features and worlds to follow post-launch.
Descenders is developed by RageSquid, and published by No More Robots, the British publishing label from Mike Rose, with funding from creative industries fund nl, and sound design from Power Up Audio, best known for their work on titles like Crypt of the Necrodancer and Towerfall Ascension. Finally, the teams are partnering up with drum & bass label Liquicity to deliver a fully licensed soundtrack.
