Description from the packaging.

The gut-wrenching Descent saga continues with more pulse-pounding action than ever before. Dive into massive subterranean strongholds and experience a whole new degree of freedom, as you careen through canyons and craters on the surface above... powered by the all-new Fusion engine. Test your piloting skills against an army of battle-drones and assault-bots using an extensive arsenal of tactics and heavy firepower. Immerse yourself in the wonders of the Descent universe, filled with new friends and old enemies, as the plot twists and turns with each daring mission. Prepare yourself for an explosive new 3D action experience that will turn your world inside out!

Fusion Engine dual-engine technology.
Descent 3's all new Fusion Engine blasts you seamlessly from inside to outside. Melding a flight-sim engine with a room-based, structural engine allows the action to race on at full speed, with no interruptions, indoors... and out.

Best multiplayer out of the box.
Descent 3 arrives fully optimized for Internet play over a modem. Remember the intuitive simplicity of Descent 1 and 2 network play? Now it's that easy to battle hordes of Descent fanatics around the world.

Polygon accurate collision detection.
All objects have mass, velocity, moments of inertia, and other real-world properties. Blow off a robot's arm and watch it bounce off a wall and fall to the floor. Launch a missile and see your enemies rocked back from the blast impact.

Over 30 cunning robots.

Gyro.
Powered-up and on patrol, Gyro has orders to terminate all intruders. Outmatched and cornered, he's not above calling for backup.

Gunslinger.
Waiting to make good on his six-gun promises, the Gunslinger is cool, calm and collected. Make your first shot count as it may be the only one you get.

Tubbs.
Brute force with a badge. Tubbs is out to give trespassers a pounding. If you don't watch your back, you'll never know what hit you.

Old Scratch.
Deadly alone and a nightmare when in packs, Old Scratch's razor sharp claws are more than enough to clip your wings.

20 Merciless weapons.

Napalm Cannon.
Blaze a path through the mechanized minions with a searing new close-quarters incendiary weapon- the Napalm Cannon. Fuel your inner pyromaniac as burning robots collide, ignite and explode- now you're playing with fire.

Cyclone Missile.
Release the hounds with a hungry new heat-seeking Cyclone Missile. A dogfighter's wildcard, the Cyclone streaks after your target until you choose to detonate it, unleashing a ravenous pack of six mini-missiles to hunt down your prey.

Mass Driver.
Built with the sniper in mind, the powerful new Mass Driver's telescopic range-finder zooms in for the kill while keeping you out of harm's way. But fire every round like it is your last- you may only get that one perfect shot.

Frag Missile.
Scour enemy defenses from the mines with stinging flak of the chaotic new Frag Missile. Campers beware, whether hiding around the corner or waiting in a darkened corridor, there is no escaping the shrapnel fury of the Frag.

  • Master the unique armament and performance handling of three new fighters.
  • Devious artificial intelligence impels robots to hide, advance, retreat, summon back-up, and work in teams.
  • Specular and reflective surfaces allow for incredible effects. Now you can lurk in the shadows and sneak up on your enemies.
