[Game website] Perfect World Entertainment last week announced Remnant: From the Ashes, a new online game currently in development by Gunfire Games, the studio behind Darksiders 3. Remnant: From the Ashes is a survival-action shooter featuring dynamic worlds, intense combat and strategic co-op. The game transports players to a bleak future where Earth has been overrun by extra-dimensional beings. Humanity’s last hope for survival is to flee to alternate dimensions for safety and uncover what these mystery beings are after.
Players build characters to suit their individual playstyle and survive the perils of diverse and deadly environments, alone or alongside a team of up to three other players. The game offers unique, customizable gameplay experience filled with intense shooting, melee combat, gear and weapon crafting, character progression, deadly enemies, epic bosses and dynamically-generated levels that offer an infinite number of ways to explore. Remnant: From the Ashes is scheduled to release in 2019 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The core feature of Remnant: From the Ashes include:
• FIGHT. ADAPT. OVERCOME. – Each world will present new challenges and perils to overcome. Throughout their journey, players will encounter dozens of monsters unique to each environment.

• EXPLORE FANTASTIC, TERRIFYING REALMS – Explore beautiful, dynamically-generated worlds – each with their own unique creatures and environmental challenges. Gain experience and adapt new strategies to survive the dangers of each world.
• CRAFT. UPGRADE. SPECIALIZE. – Band together with others to improve chances of survival. Protect and befriend skilled tradesmen and offer them the safety of a home base. In turn, they will offer valuable skills and resources for upgrades, crafting and enhancements for weapons and gear.
