Nexon Games' free-to-play co-op looter shooter The First Descendant is set to launch this Tuesday. Fans who want to get a head start and jump in right when the game releases can now pre-download it.

If downloading on PC, you'll want to have at least 50GB of space available with installment in SSD recommended. Nexon has already shared the minimum and recommended PC specs:

Minimum Specs

  • OS: Windows 10 x64 20H2
  • CPU: Intel i5-3570 / AMD FX-8350
  • System Memory: 8GB RAM
  • VGA:  GeForce GTX 1050Ti / AMD Radeon RX 570 Video Memory 4GB
  • DirectX: Version 12

Recommended Specs

  • OS: Windows 10 x64 20H2
  • CPU: Intel i7-7700K / AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
  • System Memory: 16GB RAM
  • VGA: GeForce RTX 2060 / AMD Radeon RX 5600XT
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 50GB

On console, you don't really need to worry about specs as much since you don't really have control over it. However, it's worth noting that the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions offer a Balanced Mode and AMD Frame Generation (can only be activated on a 120Hz display) as well as Ray Tracing (in Fidelity or Balanced Mode). Graphics options are unavailable on PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox One S.

With pre-loading available now, you'll be able to jump in the moment The First Descendant releases in your area. For the United States, that's only July 2nd at 3:00 a.m. EDT / 12:00 a.m. PDT.

Built with Unreal Engine 5, The First Descendant is a next-generation third-person co-op action RPG looter shooter. Players take on the role of a Descendant whose mission is to combat alien invaders known as The Vulgus who crossed dimensions over 100 years ago and brought with them the devastating Colossi and destruction. Humanity's survival is up to players who will grow stronger and upgrade their abilities and gear through a variety of missions and raids. The game puts an emphasis on co-op gameplay with strategic four-player boss fights, raids, and more.

There are a total of 14 characters available to play as at launch, each with their own unique playstyle and role. Ajax, for example, is a Tank that utilizes Void Energy and utilizes a Forcefield to protect his allies while deflecting enemy attacks. Bunny is a Nuker who can deal continuous damage by discharging electricity while sprinting.

The First Descendant officially releases on July 2nd for PC, PlayStation and Xbox consoles. The game is completely free-to-win and supported with microtransactions for things like outfits and skins for your character and weapons, experience boosters, resource packs, and battle passes.
