Descent: Underground releases exclusive demo on BrightLocker

Austin, Texas – July 31, 2017 –  Descendent Studios released an exclusive FREE demo download of their upcoming game Descent: Underground, a reboot of the classic full-freedom shooter, Descent. The developers partnered with BrightLocker, makers of an innovative new platform for game discovery, community interaction and funding that bridges the connection between game developers and players in ways not seen before in the industry.

“We believe strongly that the future of gaming is developers connecting directly with gamers,” said Descendent CEO Eric “Wingman” Peterson. “We are super excited to offer this first free taste of Descent’s future through a great community like BrightLocker.”

This multiplayer demo is available only on for a limited time. Players can try out all of the multiplayer competitive and cooperative game modes, among them a hoard-style “Corporate War” team mode, a challenging  “Survival” mode, and a tongue-in-cheek capture-the-flag mode called “Miner Mayhem”. Single-player “Survival” and “Vs. Bots” modes allow practice play in advance of the upcoming storyline campaign.

The Early Access version of Descent: Underground runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It is currently on sale for 50% off at BrightLocker.comand It is also available at other online resellers.
