From Perfect World Entertainment:
"Remnant: From the Ashes is a third-person survival-action game set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by mythical creatures. Players build characters to suit their individual playstyle and survive the perils of diverse and deadly environments, alone or alongside a team of up to three other players. The game offers unique, customizable gameplay experience filled with intense shooting, melee combat, gear and weapon crafting, character progression, deadly enemies, epic bosses and dynamically-generated levels that offer an infinite number of ways to explore."
An ambitious project with lofty visual and gameplay goals, Remnant: From the Ashes will feature a variety of worlds, each with new challenges. Flexibility is key, as each dynamically-created world will require ingenuity to develop an effective strategy for that particular landscape. Experience gained in one world will help to provide the necessary skills to conquer the next. Players will encounter dozens of monsters in each world, specific to their unique and challenging environments.
In the bleak and frightening landscape, making friends may be the only chance for survival. Skilled tradesman will play an integral part of the game and will appreciate the protection of a player's base. They are a part of the crafting system, offering skills, resources, weapons, and upgrades in trade for their safety. Tradesmen are not the only other humans encountered in the game and players are encouraged to team up with up to three other players, dramatically increasing their power through strength in numbers and boosting the chances of overall success. Co-op is likely to play a large part in this particular game. When choosing characters and teammates, analyzing the available character and hero archetypes is a must. Choosing heroes that have complementing strengths will be the best for team development as a whole.
Remnant: From the Ashes will make its public debut with fully playable hands-on demos at Gamescom, August 21 – 25, 2018.
