Descenders Gets Upgraded For the Xbox Series S/X


Bike-em-up Descenders is now available for Xbox Series X/S.

Sure, you could play Descenders on those consoles, thanks to the Xbox Series S and Series X’s backwards compatibility and, given that it’s available via Game Pass, there’s a good chance you already have. But as of now, there’s a native version of Descenders which can be downloaded for free if you already own it on the Xbox One.

On the Xbox Series S/X, this update lets you play in 4K resolution mode or 120FPS mode, giving you the choice of a prettier experience or a smoother one. We had a great time messing around with Descenders when it was in PC Early Access, so we’re definitely going to be jumping back for a second helping. However, that’s not the only Descenders news.

You can also now purchase the downhill biking game as a physical Xbox game, thanks to developers No More Robots and publishers Sold Out. There’s already been a boxed version for Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4 but the Xbox missed out. So, if you’ve never dipped into Descenders, there’s no better time to get on your bike.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
