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.

Actually, monk024, we are going to include a full soundtrack in IC004.

We'll try to get some servers up on the weekend. Narfig has a nice fat Internet pipe that should serve well.

Thanks for the tip. It works!

Great job with quartz. The gameplay and maps truly capture the feel of Descent 1 and 2. Can't wait for a single player campaign, hopefully featuring accurate remakes of the first two games.

Make sure u have met the sytem reqs. Doom v. 1.30 It wont work with any other doom version !

Otherwise the mod would quit the game and bring up the console with the message wrong api / game86.dll

My Comp: AMD 3200+ 1 Gig RAM Geforce 6200

I am an avid descent fan and was utterly delighted to learn of Into Cerberon. I have downloaded IC Quartz and followed the instructions to install it but it doesn't work. I am not a truly mod savvy person and don't know how to fix the problem. when I select Into Cerberon in Doom's mod list, the game closes and the Into Cerberon loading screen comes up it gets to the point where the "Initializing Menus" text should appear and then shuts off. In its place appears a window with a list of the files the mod loaded and scattered throughout the list are numerous notices of missing files. somebody help me!

Fantastic work so far!
I'm locking forward to a singleplay feature and a nice story.
Keep up the good work and I'm sure that this will be the best Mod ever!
Descent rules! You guys too!

Once single player is supported, this'll be the best mod in the universe! Maybe. (it's already very good now of course :))
