Update (Tue 23rd Aug, 2022): Well, as part of Gamescom 2022, we've now got a full reveal trailer for The First Descendant, and it continues to look really impressive! You can check out the trailer above, which confirms that the game is targeting a release on Xbox One, Series X and Series S, but there's no release date as of yet.
"Watch dynamic shooting action through co-op battles against huge monsters composed of diverse characters with unique concepts!"
Original story (Tue 9th Aug, 2022): Nexon has recently revealed a new teaser for its upcoming co-op shooter, The First Descendant. We'll openly admit that we hadn't really heard of this one before the new trailer dropped, but boy does it look impressive so far!
The upcoming title, which is running on Unreal Engine 5, screams Outriders to us, along with a little bit of Gears of War thrown into the mix. That probably makes sense though, given People Can Fly worked on both of those series'.
The First Descendant is from a completely different team of course, but the influences are clear to see. Developer Nexon says this will be a free-to-play co-op shooter with RPG elements, which also sounds very 'Outriders', minus the free-to-play bit. Anyway, here's a bit more footage from a slightly older teaser trailer, if you want to see a bit more gameplay:
Unfortunately, we don't have a release date for this one as of yet. However, we're assuming it's pretty far along, seen as the publisher is hosting a PC beta test through Steam, from October 20 through October 26.
How is this one looking to you? Gears/Outriders vibes? Let us know in the comments!
