Hello and welcome to the DXX-Rebirth project!

This project is dedicated to two of the most impressive First-Person Shooters of the nineties:

Descent & Descent 2

DXX-Rebirth is a Source Port of the Descent and Descent 2 Engines for Windows, Mac OS, Linux (most *NIX systems), offering OpenGL graphics and effects, advanced Multiplayer, many improvements and new features.

Descent and Descent 2 are pretty old games so you usually run into problems running it on more recent Hardware and Operating Systems. DXX-Rebirth will also take care about this for you.

It’s Open Source, it’s Multiplatform!

Still DXX-Rebirth is no clone. Our Philosophy is to bring these games to the new millenium, keep ’em alive – reborn. It’s our desire to maintain the original Feeling and Gameplay we all love so much.

In short: If you love these games and if you want to play them, you came to the right place.

  • DXX-Rebirth v0.60 public BETA in the making! (11/8/2016)

    Hello guys and gals!

    I know it’s been a while since my last post but we’ve been anything but idle. Ever since the release of DXX-Rebirth v0.58.1 the source has been under constant development, not least due to the endless efforts of kp, A Future Pilot and many others. A lot of things changed and that’s the reason we decided to release v0.60 as a public BETA first. The more eyes can help spotting issues and regressions, the better. So we hope that you’ll chime in and beat the hell out of the BETA. 🙂

    We are now in the process of wrapping up the last things so the public BETA should be available very soon. I hope this will be in a matter of a week from now but since there may still be one or the other issue we could spot ourselves, please don’t take this as a fixed deadline.
