Sublevel Zero, Spiritual Successor to Descent, is Coming to This Generation Consoles (VIDEO)
Sublevel Zero, based in part on the 1996 classic Descent, is headed to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The original first person shooter was unique in its use of six-degrees-of-freedom, a control method that allowed additional movement over the Z axis. Sublevel Zero makes use of similar gameplay, but offering upgraded visuals and procedurally generated levels to suit a modern audience. According to developer SigTrap, until now, there hasn’t been a 6DoF shooter on consoles in over ten years, the last one presumably being Descent on the original PlayStation.
Sublevel Zero puts players in the shoes of a lone pilot flying inside a gunship. The object of the game is to fight through numerous enemies and scavenge loot in order to craft weapons and ship upgrades. Because of the game’s unpredictable environments and scarce supplies, it can create a tense atmosphere for unprepared players.
