At Revival Productions, we've been consistent about our desire to make Overload a great single-player game, a high-quality 6-DOF shooter that everyone can enjoy. We are aiming to release it in March of 2017 on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC/Mac/Linux. None of that is changing. However...


Due to overwhelming demand, we are now committing (if the Kickstarter makes it) to making a MULTIPLAYER EXPANSION for Overload. We always wanted to have multiplayer and believed we would eventually, but we did not feel comfortable making a public commitment to it. It's too easy for something like multiplayer to blow up the schedule and adversely affect the single player game. We want to hit our single player date with a great game.

So, here's our plan: We will deliver the single player game in March, 2017. If the Kickstarter campaign is successful, we will deliver multiplayer as an expansion sometime after that (likely 6-8 months). Everyone who backs the campaign at the DIGITAL EDITION reward level and above will receive a free copy of the multiplayer expansion. We are not sure on the scope, but it will include the competitive modes and key features that kept Descent going for over 20 years.


Matt Toschlog and I will be starting to answer questions on our AMA on Reddit in a matter of moments.  The main topic is Descent, but we won't be surprised to get some questions about Overload as well.  Head over there right now and ask all of your burning questions.


Two more quick things: We've launched our Forums on We're excited to get some more interactive discussion going in one central location!

And: We just hit 25% funding this morning after just 5 days. We still have a ways to go, but we're expecting to make a big push this week and we want to thank everyone for their support so far!

      Fantastic news about Multiplayer! The lack of it was almost a show stopper for me backing (and I imagine a few others) - but I backed it anyway. xD

      This is the way to do it guys! Not to over promise and to stay focused. Great to hear we'll have the multiplayer sometime afterwards. The SP campaign should give us a good warmup. :)

      Thanks for giving both types of gameplay its own development schedule.

      We can wait on the multiplayer, we are glad that its coming.

      Focus on making the single player as awesome as we remember it :)
