New Aquanox game hits Kickstarter

New Aquanox game hits Kickstarter

The AquaNox series returns with Aquanox: Deep Descent, although this game is a re-imagining of the gameplay and world of the series. Developer Digital Arrow has launched a Kickstarter campaign to get more financial support besides Nordic Games. The latter acquired last year some assets from the now defunct THQ, among them were assets from Deep Six, an unreleased underwater action title. These have been "integrated into the pre-production". In development for PC, with PS4/X1 as stretch goals. More details with the video inside.



The Kickstarter Campaign for Aquanox Deep Descent is Now Live


Vienna, Austria, August 18, 2015 - Nordic Games and Digital Arrow announce the Kickstarter of Aquanox Deep Descent.

Backers can vote on which stretch goals should be prioritized.

In addition to that, assets and research from an unreleased THQ underwater action game called Deep Six have been integrated into the pre-production of the game.

More in-depth information, which would go beyond the scope of this press release, can be found on the Kickstarter Page.

“Reaching the main funding goal of the Kickstarter campaign will allow us to create a new Aquanox game of the size and complexity it deserves, for gamers around the globe. At the same time, it also allows us to make its future players an integral part in development decisions surrounding the game at its earliest stages,” comments Norbert Varga, project lead at Digital Arrow.

“We’ve had long discussions with Digital Arrow about the scope of the game and the transition to Unreal Engine 4. Based on our positive previous experience with Kickstarter (The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 together with the developer KING ART), we firmly believe it is the right platform to help us achieve our joint vision for the future of Aquanox”, adds Martin Kreuch, producer at Nordic Games.

Aquanox Deep Descent is a re-imagining of both the gameplay and world of the original AquaNox-series, taking into account the scientific advances made since the first game. Like its predecessors, the game will be an underwater vehicle shooter, in which players control a variety of customizable ships to engage in submarine battles in the dystopian deep sea world of Aqua.

- Fight - Action-packed vehicle shooter combat that supports a wide variety of play styles
- Co-op - 4 player drop-in co-op, with four unique pilots who are all involved in the game story
- Customize - Create your ship from an extensive range of ship pieces and various customization options
- Explore - Discover the deepest corners of the ocean
- RPG Elements - Mining, salvaging, trading and looting
- PVP - Classic multiplayer modes, including Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch Dogfighting

    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (2 Hours ago)
