Although gamescom 2016 is long gone, there are still some things that haven’’t been shown to a broader public on the Internet. This is how THQ Nordic have been able to publish a fresh gamescom gameplay footage from Aquanox: Deep Descent, a futuristic submarine simulator and a sequel to the successful game series from early 2000s. The video comes from an early pre-alpha version, but it gives a nice glimpse at what the game is going to be like. Plus, the commentary discusses some of the key features, like co-op, combat, customizable ships, PvP, etc.
In contrast to Aquanox, and AquaNox 2: Revelation, which were created by Massive Development, the next installment in the series is in works by Serbian independent studio Digital Arrow, who had previously made InMomentum. Aquanox: Deep Descent is more of a reboot than a sequel, and aims to combine the best features of the two previous games with fast-paced action, deep sea exploration, and modern audiovisuals. Aquanox: Deep Descent is set to release in late spring 2017 for PC and may also hit Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
