Things get hot for Descenders in the latest content update

News Xbox One

While Descenders is still in Xbox One’s Preview program, it doesn’t mean that RageSquid are content with just tweaking the experience when bugs and feedback are submitted. Launching August 7, the world of Descenders is going to get hot, hot, hot – a bit like the heatwave the UK has been ‘enjoying’.

The Ring of Fire update brings a brand new location to whip, jump and scrub your way through and brings the total area number to five. Aptly named Volcano, stunts are omitted in favour of “tectonics” – which means a bumpy ride that is accompanied by the immediate danger of flowing lava!

Unlike the other areas, The volcano region is only accessible by completing special requirements during your Descender runs. The area also contains a new – third – secret area so keep your head on a swivel. To top the update off, new freeride options, kits and bikes have also been added.

Now… queue Jonny Cash’s ‘Ring of Fire’.

I've been gaming for longer than I care to remember and spent four years writing for another XCN website leading a 10 strong team. Now I'm in charge of TiX alongside Dave Moran – I hope you enjoy what we do!
