Following its reveal back in The Game Awards 2022, THQ Nordic announced that it is bringing Remnant II to retail stores worldwide.
Remnant II is being developed by Gunfire Games (a studio under THQ Nordic) and published digitally by Gearbox. But for retail store distribution around the world, Gearbox partnered with THQ Nordic to bring the game to more players — great news for those who prefer buying physical copies of games.
Remnant II is the sequel to the 2019 game Remnant: From the Ashes, an action-RPG that’s set in a post-apocalyptic Earth. While the setting is interesting, the game’s strongest hook is that it’s a title which is inspired by the Dark Souls games, meaning it is devilishly difficult yet rewarding to complete.
While Remnant is a Soulslike, it does stand out for its combination of melee combat and third-person shooting action.
The sequel’s premise is described as:
Building on the original game, Remnant II introduces new weapons, gear, bosses, and biomes – including branching quest lines and an expanded Archetype system. Remnant II plunges players deeper into a devastated world requiring a mix of methodical and frenetic ranged and melee combat against cunning enemies and punishing boss battles. Enter the fray as a lone-wolf or even the odds by teaming up with two friends to overcome daunting challenges.
Remnant II is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC sometime in 2023. For now though, there’s no word yet on a specific release date.
