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.

hey I just reached this through wikipedia and I gotta say, im glad sombody thinks this game deserves to be saved.

Because I loved this game, all 3 of them:
the bad graphics of the origianl,
the overly complex mines of the second,
and the smooth and much nicer looks of the third

Too bad I dont have doom3, never been a fan of horror type gore games but its good to see this is being done, and to a good standard. whenever I played Descent I loved leaving the auto levelout feature off,
so it gives your mind a big work out too when you play

well, good luck. i'll be watching

For .004, are you going to have an IP address for us to connect to so we don't have to scroll throught the list? But, are you going to have servers up even?

I believe the plan is to have a customer game type for this release, so you can sort the servers by that. As far as having a server up and running, we normally have some sort of European and North American server up around release time. Volunteers who want to run a server are always appreciated.

It's not really an update per say, it's an internal release with some new code. We will add .004 here when it arrives.
