When extra-dimensional demons start springing up, it’s time to take up arms. It seems like cooperative shooters are coming out of the woodwork these days. Survival-action game Remnant: From the Ashes is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2019, according to publisher Perfect World Entertainment and Gunfire Games, the studio behind Darksiders 3.
In this third-person co-op shooter, players are transported to a world where humanity is invaded by creatures from another dimensional. Forced to fight back, survivors move from dimension to dimension in order to live another day. In the fight against these unknown enemies, players will be able to fully customize their weapons and gear, while upgrading their characters.
Perfect World Entertainment promises plenty of content for players to dive through as they detail what the game has to offer:
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. Fight tooth-and-nail against creatures both big and small – from towering behemoths the size of buildings to countless hordes of small, deadly terrors. Adapt… or die trying.
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.
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS – The Root are ruthless and deadly. To stand a chance, players will need help – they need a Team. In Remnant: From the Ashes, players can group with up to three other survivors. There are multiple hero archetypes to choose from, each designed with unique skills and advantages to help the group survive.
While the game has just been announced, players won’t have to wait long to get hands-on time. Perfect World Entertainment and Gunfire Games will have a playable demo of Remnant: From the Ashes at Gamescom in August and PAX East in early September.
