Two weeks ago, downhill biking game Descenders received a pretty significant update. What we – and indeed, everyone – didn’t know at the time, however, was that the update added a secret new world.
Mike Rose, of the game’s publisher No More Robots, has revealed that developer Rage Squid has included “an entire new world in the game which took special steps to find”. He says ‘took’, rather than ‘takes’, because a tiny number of players have now stumbled across it.
Introducing ‘Ridges’, complete with a classic Limp Bizkit soundtrack:
Rose says that Ridges is “essentially consistent, steep mountain drops, with insane jumps and the constant possibility of death”, before adding that “less than 0.1% of players” will unlock it.
So how do you unlock it? Well, it’s still a secret, although we’ve been left with this small hint.
Do you own Descenders on Switch? Feeling tempted to try and figure this all out? It sounds like you’re going to need an awful lot of skill.
