Extreme sports game Descenders adds new bike types, tracks, tricks and more

By - | Views: 14,233

RageSquid and No More Robots recently gave the extreme sports game Descenders quite a big free content upgrade, which includes plenty of fancy new extras.

Firstly, they worked with some community modders to pull in some of the most popular community content as official like the Aloda Lakes, Descenders Island, The Sanctuary, MegaPark, Kushmuck4x, Idarkopf tracks. Additionally, they added in BikeOut 4 and New Lexico which are two new original maps.

I'm a big fan of the BikeOut levels, as they're totally different to what Descenders was originally made for and they're pretty amusing as you get bashed around.

There's a lot more though, they also added in additional bike types so you're no longer stuck with the default Enduro bike. Once you've obtained a sponsor you can switch to either a Hardtail or Downhill bike. Even bike physics was overhauled for the new bikes, with each being better at something. On top of that there's new tricks including the Tabletop, Superman Seatgrab, Barspin, Tailwhip and Tuck No Hander but the Candybar was removed.

A new camera mode Bowl Cam was added too, which gives a better overview while playing in bowls and bike parks. Here's a gallery of the different view modes you can have now, pictured in the New Lexico park added in this update (click to view all pictures):

Additionally you will see 30+ new customization items to unlock, lots of new sound effects for the BikeOut obstacles, ambient sound effects added to the Bike Parks and more. It's a massive update!

You can pick it up from Humble Store and Steam.
