AVault heeft een preview van Descent III op z'n site gedumpt. Het spel is nog net zo misselijkmakend als de vorige versies en heeft ook een paar leuke nieuwe features:
One of my favorite additions are the more than twenty new weapons. Some of these new vehicles of destruction are worthy of singular mention. The napalm missile ejects its contents upon impact and burns for a while, then drips down onto the ground laying ambush for those traveling the tunnels. Other weapons seem very familiar, partially kin to ones seen in the previous titles, while others have taken on quite the Forsaken feel, such as the napalm gun. Guns said to be in the game are a microwave gun that deforms the viewpoint of anything it hits, including players, and something called the mass driver, which is rumored to act similar to the railgun in Quake 2.
No Descent game would be complete without an array of missiles, and this one doesn't disappoint. The frag missile is much like the smart missile, releasing huge amounts of shrapnel upon impact. The impact mortar acts like a bouncing bomb. One of the most talked about weapons so far has been dubbed the black shark, but not much is known about the specifics of what it does.
