During Gamescom I got a quick look at Remnant: From the Ashes. And let me start out with; God almighty this is a difficult game! During my very brief time with the demo I died too many times to count – perhaps more than I did in my first hours of Dark Souls…
Remnant: From the Ashesis a third-person survival action game where players create characters to suit their playstyle and set out alone or alongside a team of up to three other players to explore and survive the perils of diverse and deadly environments. – Game Info
Let me start out with saying that this game not only looks awesome, but has an awesome setting. The sound design is amazing, and so is the world design. Unfortunately I found the demo to be way too difficult for my taste. And not in a good Dark Souls way, it was more like; “I have no idea why I keep dying, and now I’m all out of ammo.” In other words, not a very good experience. I am interested in what the game grows into though, and will surely be keeping an eye out for future updates.
Remnant: From the Ashes is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC some time in 2019. The game is developed by Gunfire Games and published by Perfect World Entertainment.
