Descent 3: Mercenary is the expansion add-on pack to Descent 3. Set in the same universe last seen in the original, the conspiracy continues as you fly as leader of the new Black Pyro ship. In single-player missions, the ship is selected automatically for certain levels while those playing multi-player missions without Mercenary installed will see the ship as a regular Pyro-GL.
As leader of the Black Pyro hired by Dravis, you'll further his plans in a new, seven level single-player campaign. Those familiar with the world introduced in Descent 3 can expect to see more traps, secret puzzles and distinct environments as the missions unfold. For multi-player fans, four new missions created by Outrage await exploration: B-Sides is a collection of four bizarre (developer adjective) levels, Chaos contains three Entropy levels, Havoc consists of six levels for CTF or Anarchy play and Mayhem, with three small Monsterball-based levels.
The game also features a collection of fan-made multi-player levels created for the original Descent 3 as well as version 1.0 of the Descent 3 Level Editor (D3Edit) for designing your own levels. D3Edit contains a full tutorial walkthrough to assist novice level and expert designers with power-up placement, robots and scripted events.
Descent 3: Mercenary requires a 3D acceleration card as well as installation of the original game. ~ Michael L. House, All Game Guide
