It’s been sitting in Early Access/Game Preview since mid-2018, but now it’s time for the downhill biking sensation that is Descenders to jump into the big time, with a full launch on Xbox One and Steam.

Available right now as a fully fledged title, Descenders will drop you slap-bang into the middle of the downhill biking scene, providing procedurally generated worlds that are full of obstacles, jumps, slopes and more, putting your bike skills to the test like never before.

Coming in with a £19.99 price tag, Descenders on Xbox One and Steam has quite obviously come a long way since the early Game Preview/Early Access days, with No More Robots having built on the original premise over the months. In fact, now we have a full game that warrants that release, with you given the chance to become a real downhill legend, maximising your bike controls and utilising a deep physics system that will constantly blur the risk/reward line.

You can add to that online multiplayer options, a new Destiny-styled central hub filled with players and the chance to ride with strangers, or lobby up with friends. Further still are 4 new worlds, including those of Jungle and Favela, new music, new modes, new tweaks, new customization, and tons more.

With a full online Rep system showcasing the haves from the havenots, the chance to sit astride new bikes and take on new gear the more you play, if you are a fan of the downhill mountain biking life and want something that could possibly replicate the real-world madness, then Descenders is quite possibly the game for you.

Features include:

  • 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
  • Become the next Descender: Can you survive the game in a single run, and reach the ranks of the legendary Descenders?

Tempted? Get yourself over to the Xbox Store or Steam page right now, drop the £19.99 required and enjoy the thrill of the ride. Oh, and if you don’t fancy paying for access to Descenders, it’s also now available on Xbox Game Pass too.

Want to know more? Our full review is in the works and will be with you in the days ahead – make sure you keep an eye out for it. Alternatively you could always check out our hands-on with Descenders during its time as an early Game Preview title. Just be aware that this is now an altogether different kettle of fish.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
