Aquanox: Deep Descent Gets A New Explanation Trailer

The folks at THQ Nordic decided to make a special trailer to introduce people to the world of Aquanox: Deep Descent. Apparently, the developers recognize that while longtime gamers may recognize the Aquanox name when it comes to old-school titles, most modern fans who came into gaming in the past decade may have no idea what this is about. Which is kind of the curse THQ has to bear with all of the retro titles they've been purchasing the last few years, you have to reintroduce people to some of them. So down below, along with info on the game, is a special explanation trailer showing you what this game is.
