Perfect World Entertainment has announced Remnant: From the Ashes from Gunfire Games, developers of Darksiders 3.
Third-person survival games set in post-apocalyptic hellscapes are common enough, but Remnant: From the Ashes stands out by adding a dash of mythic fantasy to a bleak future Earth that has been conquered by extra-dimensional beings.
Remnant: From the Ashes features a mix of third-person shooting and melee combat, with crafting and character progression systems. Players can configure their own play-style to combat a range of deadly enemies across a series of dynamically generated levels. The game supports online co-op for up to four players.
Here’s the debut trailer.
Yoon Im, senior vice president of publishing at Perfect World, said in a press statement:
“Perfect World Entertainment jumped at the opportunity to partner with Gunfire Games. Their deep expertise in creating fantastical worlds, steeped in rich sci-fi themes make them the perfect partner to expand our company’s portfolio of live service games. Remnant: From the Ashes will deliver a unique, dynamic world that provides an infinite number of ways to explore and combat enemies. We know players will love our twist on the survival-action genre.”
David Adams, Co-Founder of Gunfire Games, added:
“Remnant: From the Ashes is about working together to build something bigger than yourself, and that idea is core to our approach to the game. Perfect World Entertainment has been supportive of our pursuit to develop a game with a robust co-op experience. The company’s live service knowledge coupled with our signature gameplay and world building, enables us to develop an immersive world that we hope players will enjoy solo or together, for years to come.”
Remnant: From the Ashes will make its public debut at next month’s Gamescom expo in Colonge, and at PAX West in Seattle. It’s due for release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in 2019.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
