Additional Game Information
Release date: Early 2017
Descension is a highly-moddable multiplayer space survival game. Trapped in a mysterious universe filled with the wreckage of civilizations across the multiverse, you and your friends must survive by exploring and scavenging resources from what's left of their ships. Each ship is driven by a unique narrative, giving insight into this place, these people, and what brought all of you here.

With no hope of escape, will you rise to greet death calmly, or will you send it back to the void in terror?

Driven by what we're calling the "GraveKeeper," each ship has a different story to tell. Separating them is the harsh brutality of space. Navigate the void, taking care to preserve oxygen and fuel to avoid a cold death. Explore each ship, fighting your way through unique scenarios, both with and without gravity.

Learn about each civilization, how they got there, and scavenge food, water, and item components along the way. Use components in our modular crafting system to build your own weapons and utilities, tailored to suit your desired play-style.

"The Void" is a lifeless universe, left silent and empty by the actions of its dominant race, the Inferna. After collapsing all matter in the universe into a singularity, they harnessed its power in order to create a rift in the multiverse, accidentally tearing holes into every universe in the process.

If some unfortunate soul happens through one of these rifts, they vanish, becoming trapped within the infinite void with no hope of ever leaving. The players, members of the Earth Coalition, had just narrowly escaped a Xilli cruiser when they fell into the void. With no chance of escape, the only option is to survive.

From the beginning, we have always felt that deeply integrated modding was important to the lifeblood of the game. With the backdrop of the void, it seems only fitting that people be able to contribute to this vast pool of lost ships. Using our tools and LUA scripting, players will be able to create new alien races, ships, narratives, and item components.

Create your own murder mystery on a luxury liner, or tell the tale of an experiment gone wrong, anything is possible! Once imported, the "GraveKeeper" will take charge, integrating your assets into the game and bringing your contribution to life.

I would like to read something new about any progress being made, myself. It's yet to be ready for any kind of purchase and still sitting on my wish list.

What you need in this is some teams, like, police, military, some merc's, traders/eco'ers, treehuggers.
Should be a huge MMOFPSRPG, where all the players change what happens, set up the markets, etc... That would be kind of cool.

Would check it out then for sure.
