[Steam page] Perfect World Entertainment and Gunfire Games today announced that this summer’s sleeper hit, Remnant: From the Ashes, has sold more than a million units. To celebrate, on Thursday, October 31, the game will release new in-game content and rewards that will enhance players’ experience, including one of the most requested asks by fans: Hardcore Mode. This new mode will challenge players to complete the game with only one life. In addition, Gunfire Games teased that more exciting DLC will drop through 2020.
Hardcore Mode is where death is truly the end. Players create a new Hardcore character and play until their first death which is permanent. To maintain a level playing field, Hardcore characters can only play online with other Hardcore characters and will not be able to random matchmake. Players will have to manually invite friends or other stalwart Survivors to a game. The most dangerous challenges will also receive great rewards, as defeating a World Boss on Hardcore mode will drop new rings with powerful effects.
These items will be available to all of the characters on a player’s account (old and new, Standard and Hardcore) after they’ve obtained them. This means all future characters, including those in Hardcore mode, will begin their journey with greater potential. Remnant: From the Ashes’ latest quality of life improvements will also add frequently requested systems such as environment pings and markers, the ability to hide helmets, a toggle to disable tutorial prompts and more balance changes. Stay tuned to even more updates!
