Remnant: From the Ashes is an action role-playing third person shooter developed by Gunfire Games and published by Perfect World Entertainment. It was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 20, 2019. The game received generally positive reviews upon release and more than 1 million units have been sold.
Remnant: From the Ashes borrows its mechanics from franchises such as the Souls series,1 but rather than simply being melee combat, it incorporates a third person shooter element where the player can wield up to two gun weapons,
one main weapon and one side arm, alongside their melee weapon.2 These weapons can vary between machine guns, shotguns, hunting rifles, sniper rifles and the like, and can also attach mods to them which give players extra abilities.3
Players can create their own custom character, and are required to defeat challenging enemies and bosses found throughout a randomly generated world, though the player still follows a set story.4 Players are able to upgrade their weapons and armor using materials they find throughout the world. They can also unlock trait points, which can be used to increase the stats of their playable character.
