Into Cerberon aims to bring the gameplay of the definitive 6-degrees-of-freedom game, Descent, into the industrial gloom of Doom 3.

Fly around the interiors of mines, refineries, research centres, and other industro-technical environments with full six degrees of freedom control: roll, tilt, yaw, and slide in all directions. Battle with your friends in pitch-black tunnels in the multiplayer action, or take on robots infected with a terrible nanovirus plague in the singleplayer campaign. An array of powerful weapons are at your command; from the humble lasers (not so humble once upgraded) and mundane concussion misssile to the fantastic Fusion Cannon and tremendous Mega Missile. Awe your foes as electric bolts leap from your ElectroHull, or give new meaning to the phrase "bad sunburn" with the insidious UV-8 Ultraviolet Emitter. Feel the kickback of the powerful AutoCannon as it hammers your target, or the heat from the Flamethrower as it fries armour plate like chicken wings. Pummel enemies with the Hephasestus Cannon, and melt what's left with the Plasma Cannon.

Featuring claustrophobic environments and gut-wrenching action, with enemies coming at you from every which way, Into Cerberon will scare you like Doom 3 couldn't. Hide in the shadows if you're afraid, or run and gun if you can aim. Turn on your headlights to see, but be aware that they make you more visible, too.

Into Cerberon will alter your perceptions of multiplayer DM. Think all those frags you racked up mean you won the match? Think again. In "Meltdown" mode, dead men collect no rewards - you must escape the mine before the reactor blows to make it to the winner's circle.

We recommend keeping a fresh pair of pants handy. Fire up your afterburners, check your quad lasers, and prepare to descend... Into Cerberon.

So, if this mod is not dead anymore, can we expect a new update before the 10th anniversary of the last one? Though 4 years without one seems pretty much re-dead to me...

Wow! It's been awhile, and this is still the most awesome mod for the Descent game genre - but it's going to be getting some competition soon!

From Epic_Games Unreal_Engine_3 with this UDK game @ Descent.silverball-magic.com in a remake of the original Descent game done in the latest UDK version.

And while your at it, you might as well check out the fan site for it @ Descent-to-udk.deviantart.com

Enjoy! And as always: Prepare_for_Descent! :D

So, if any of these terms sound familiar then your in the right place!

Trying to play this on Ubuntu 12.04, Doom 1.3.1.1304, but when I go to Mods>Into Cerberon 0.0.3, I see the Descent/Cerberon Logo briefly, then the game quits. Anyone have a fix for this?

Thanks in advance.

The Question Is: What Does Dead Mean?
