Descenders coming to PS4 and Switch at retail, thanks to Sold Out co-publishing agreement
Publishing label No More Robots (Hypnospace Outlaw, Not Tonight, Yes Your Grace) and development studio RageSquid are thrilled to announce that Descenders, their popular downhill biking game with over 1.5 million players, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch as both a digital and retail release, as part of a co-publishing agreement with British publisher Sold Out.
Descenders is downhill multiplayer biking for the modern era, with fast-paced extreme action that’s easy to pick up, but difficult to master. Currently available on Steam and Xbox Game Pass, the game’s player base has gone from strength to strength, with a dozen major content updates bringing in more than a million riders.
Now the title will launch worldwide on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in 2020, both at digital and in retail stores, with video games publisher Sold Out handling the retail release.
The game features online multiplayer and dozens of hours of content, alongside a deep physics system and tight controls that allow players to string together incredible trick combos.
Procedurally generated worlds mean that no two runs are ever the same, with special challenge nodes to discover, and nerve-racking Boss Jumps that truly sort the casuals from the pros.
“We’re extremely excited to work with Sold Out on the retail releases for Descenders,” said No More Robots director Mike Rose.
“Our players have been begging us for a physical release on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch for a while now, so getting to work with Sold Out on a worldwide retail release is essentially fulfilling a long-standing dream for all of us.”
