Aegis Descent is a shooter with roguelike elements inspired by the Descent series. The game was developed by Traega Entertainment studio.

Plot

The action takes place at the end of World War II. The best pilots of the American air force are asked to participate in a secret project testing a flying tank. On the spot it turns out that in fact the goal is to use this machine to travel to a large cave system located under the foundations of a building inhabited by an alien civilization.

Game mechanics

This game belongs to the shooter genre referred to as 6DoF (Six degrees of freedom). Most of the levels are set in caves, and thanks to sitting in the cockpit of a patrol craft we can move in full 3D, which strongly affects the course of skirmishes.

We observe the events from the first person perspective. In combat we can use a variety of weapons, including cannons and rockets, as well as ram enemy units. During the journey into the depths of the caves, the player acquires new parts that allow us to improve our machine.

All this has been enriched with roguelite elements. Death is final and forces you to start the game from the beginning. However, it does not erase all contrivances - we keep the unlockable pilot classes, weapons and perks that provide useful bonuses.

Game modes

The game lets you play solo only.
