NEXON debuted a new cinematic trailer for The First Descendant, giving players a deeper look at the Descendants while also revealing a Summer 2024 launch. A free-to-play co-op looter shooter, The First Descendant, will be available on Steam, PlayStation, and the Microsoft Store on Xbox. Sporting combat mechanics that give you all the Attack on Titan feels, this is one to watch.
This new cinematic trailer for The First Descendant, created in Unreal Engine 5.2, features Descendants Valby, Viessa, and a mysterious new face. Encouraged by her allies, Valby accepts her calling as a Descendant and prepares with her team for a sudden face-off against two monstrous Colossi threatening Ingris, their home. The trailer highlights the significance of cooperative gameplay and encourages players to be amongst the first to rise to the occasion in the Summer 2024.
The First Descendant recently held a Crossplay Open Beta, which amassed nearly 2 million participants from over 200 countries. Following the Beta, the development team decided to launch in 2024 to provide a host of top-requested enhancements, including higher mission variety, more content in the fields, cleaner user experience and interface, and even further optimized graphics.
In a recent Dev Note, game producer Lee Beom-jun highlighted some key updates and features players can expect at launch, such as better co-op play, matchmaking support for dungeon missions, and generally improved missions and fields. Loadouts for weapon and module presets are also being added to the game, as they’ve been a frequent request from both console and PC players.
