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

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Sdarts: You're right.. in "relative" terms Quantum Break has terrible performance. (41 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Tinks: I play a variety of FPS so those kinds of differences are pretty normal to me. And "all the time"? As much as you play OW because you put some insane hours into that :P (42 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Absolutelly agreed on! But Suikoden 2 is on the same league as Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 6, they are some of the best games ever made. (1 Hour ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: 5 was better, but not on par with 2. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Same for other games as well. Even a GTX 980 has problems with many modern games. And on smaller cases, even GTX 980 Ti as well. I'm sure a GTX 1070 can handle it - with upscaling turned on. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: It's relative, because the GTX 970 isn't what it used to be and is over 2 years old. Not even Rise of the Tomb Raider sustains 1080p@60fps at Ultra settings with a GTX 970. (1 Hour ago)

    droezelke @Sdarts: still bad performance (1 Hour ago)
