THQ Nordic and Digital Arrow have announced the release date for their first-person submarine combat game, Aquanox Deep Descent.
Aquanox Deep Descent is both a reboot and prequel set before the events of the original game from 2001. It was Kickstarted back in 2015, though news regarding the game’s development has been rather sparse over the last few years.
As with the old games in the series, Aquanox Deep Descent takes players to the unforgiving depths of Aqua. What remains of humanity lives in converted underwater research and mining stations after the Earth’s surface has become uninhabitable. Rival factions fight for control of dwindling resources in heavily armed combat submarines.
Aquanox Deep Descent‘s campaign can be played entirely in co-op, with drop-in, drop-out multiplayer for up to four players. The game also features competitive multiplayer in the form of Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes.
