Aquanox: Deep Descent | First Multiplayer Beta Event Launches Today
THQ Nordic has today launched the first closed multiplayer beta event for Aquanox: Deep Descent, the first-person underwater vehicle shooter from Digital Arrow. Available on Steam for PC, the beta runs from 6pm CET Friday, April 28th to 6pm CET Monday, May 1st, featuring two game modes – Team Deathmatch and 4v4 Deathmatch – across two different maps against other online players (with AI opponents filling any empty slots).

Aquanox Deep Descent is a first person underwater vehicle shooter, in which players control a variety of customizable ships to engage in fierce battles in the dystopian deep sea world of Aqua.
In the near future, the Earth’s surface has become uninhabitable. What remains of humankind lives in former mining and research stations, deep below the surface of the sea.
