Today Gearbox Publishing and Gunfire Games announced the release window of Remnant 2.
The game, which is the sequel of the successful Remnant: From the Ashes, will be released in summer 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. It’s a Souls-like action-adventure RPG with a twist. Instead of fighting with melee weapons and spells, players have an arsenal of firearms at their disposal, which is quite a departure from the tropes created by souls games, albeit you could say that Bloodborne did have some gunpowder weapons.
Alongside the announcement, we also get a new gameplay trailer that showcases a super-cute good boy who can certainly prove himself as useful as he is adorable.
You can watch it below.
