Gunfire Games’ Remnant: From the Ashes officially launches August 20, but players who preorder the gritty Souls-like shooter can play now and tomorrow as a bonus ‘VIP preview weekend’ occasion.
If you haven’t been following Remnant: From the Ashes, it is an action-RPG that is taken much more than a handful of queues from the Souls series, adding in a load of guns and co-op activities and added-dimensional plant monsters (truly, I’m quite certain Dark Souls had these, as well). You can play with two co-op partners to attempt to take on its chittering hordes, or play solo.
As Wealthy identified when he attempted a preview construct not too long ago, it is a difficult game that is about applying sources wisely – ammo is scarce, so it is essential to use what tiny of it you have effectively. Remnant also rewards you according to how you play with perks tailored to the way you have approached circumstances. Stealthily taking out enemy snipers at a distance, for instance, rewards you with the Shadow Walker trait, which reduces enemy awareness of you. But you will also be in a position to choose out skills in trees you unlock, which provides you a measure of manual handle more than how you spec out your character.
Maybe the most promising aspect of Remnant is the procedural dungeons. Wealthy saw that Gunfire has taken the Chalice Dungeon idea from Bloodborne and enhanced upon it, building considerably much more intricate and detailed levels than FromSoft’s PlayStation-only classic provided.
In any case, the people more than on Reddit say you can nevertheless get into the VIP preview weekend if you pre-order Remnant now, and you can come across it more than on Steam.
