Revival Productions has announced that tunnel shooter, Overload from the original creators of the critically-acclaimed 90s classic Descent, will be available for Xbox One during Q3 2018.

Overload is an FPS that combines the best of classic 6-DOF gameplay found in Descent with the modern shooter.

“We started Overload as a nostalgic homage to Descent, but it’s really grown into something more. We were able to create a deep story with voice, a new challenge mode and add VR support. And all this is on top of graphics and sound we could only dream about 20 years ago,” said Mike Kulas, co-creator, Revival Productions.

Overload is set in a selection of labyrinthine environments across 15 single-player levels including some secrets. Obstacles faced include: lava, forcefields, lockdowns, ambushes and secret rooms. There will be 6 difficulty options to choose from as well.

The game also has 20 robot enemy types including 3 bosses. If that’s not enough for you there’s even public multiplayer and a Challenge mode.
