Seeking A Dog For The End Of The World: Remnant 2

Remnant: From the Ashes was an incredible Souls-like (this is a highly debated topic) game from 2019 that struck the right chord with a lot of gamers. As someone who despises Souls-like games (they’re just too hard for me), Remnant gave me the best of both worlds between something Souls-like and an action RPG. It made a game type that to many felt unattainable different enough to stand out on its own while still providing the learning curve that comes along with a Souls game. That’s not to say Remnant is an easy game, it’s far from easy. The news of a sequel got a lot of people excited and got me to start replaying Remnant again. Remnant 2 looks like it will take the best aspects of its predecessor and makes them better.

As with Remnant: From the Ashes, you will be able to play single-player or co-op, though with the look of some of these creatures co-op will probably be the way to go. There is still a focus on material collection for crafting and upgrading weapons and armor, so looting is still very much in play. The dynamically generated dungeons look to bring enhanced replayability, and since multiple stories are told throughout this world so they say exploration and revisits are highly encouraged.

The big addition is the completely revamped class system. In Remnant you are made to pick an archetype before starting your playthrough. While your class has specific functions, the class selection in Remnant felt a bit lacking. In a rare case of devs listening to the fans Gunfire Games took the feedback and completely reworked their class system from the ground up. Rather than having one archetype…you get two! That means two archetypes, dual skills, two traits, and double the fun. For a more in-depth description of the complete overhaul, you can check out their post about it on their website. Oh yeah, and one of the archetypes comes with a doggo.

If you want to learn more about the archetypes you can check out the highly detailed videos from Remnant themselves for the Gunslinger, Handler, and Challenger.

Remnant 2 is set to be a wild, difficult, terrifying, and incredibly badass game. While there isn’t a set release yet, we should be getting it in Summer 2023.
