RageSquid and No More Robots’ downhill “rogue-bike” cycling sim Descenders is coming to Xbox Series X|S. The game will launch for Microsoft’s next-gen platforms this summer with a host of visual improvements and some very welcome new features.
What do we know about Descenders on Xbox Series X|S?
This news comes via No More Robots’ Mike Rose on Twitter. Earlier today, Rose tweeted that Descenders is on its way to Xbox Series X|S and will be getting both digital and retail versions on those platforms, so if you like boxed games, you’re in luck. It’ll have 60fps and 4K30fps modes available, and there doesn’t seem to be any difference between the Xbox Series X and Series S in that department, so it doesn’t matter which console you own.

As well as the new visual upgrade, Descenders will also support 8-player multiplayer lobbies, so you can buddy up with your friends and take on the game’s challenges. It’ll have crossplay with PC as well as cross-save functionality, so if you’ve already been playing on PC, you can continue from where you left off on Series X or Series S. In addition, Rose has confirmed that Descenders will support Smart Delivery, allowing you to play for free on Series X|S if you already own the game on Xbox One. This includes anyone who’s playing on Xbox Game Pass. Rose says Descenders will remain on Xbox Game Pass “for a veeeeeery long time”, too.
We don’t yet know what kind of visual improvements Descenders will boast on Xbox Series X|S, but expect lots of fancy new lighting and texture work. Rose says this version of the game is “goddamn sexy” and is “easily the best console version to date”, so you’re in luck if you pick Descenders up on Microsoft’s new platforms. We’ll bring you more on this – including a potential release date – as soon as we get it. Until then, you can grab Descenders right now on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.
