If Remnant II wasn’t in your radar earlier than, it must be now. The sequel to a surprisingly nice 2019 Souls-like shooter is even higher than the unique, breaking out on Steam at launch regardless of stories of bugs, efficiency points, and, no less than on PlayStation 5, issues with co-op. The studio behind it, Gunfire Video games, is now promising to deal with these points and extra because it celebrates the neighborhood’s “overwhelming constructive response” up to now.
Think about Gears of Warfare meets Darkish Souls with some loot thrown in and you’ve got a reasonably good thought of what Remnant II is all about. You play as a post-apocalyptic survivor who has to combat by way of a multiverse playground stuffed with monsters to avoid wasting humanity. It’s a grim grind that’s arduous to place down because of continually shifting environments, new secrets and techniques to find, actually crunchy fight, and three-player co-op, no less than when the whole lot is working proper.
“We all know that encountering bugs and glitches might be irritating and may hinder your pleasure for the sport,” growth director Ben Gabbard posted on Steam on July 27. “We take these points extremely severely, and our group is working to determine and deal with these points as shortly as potential.” He talked about Gunfire has already addressed snags blocking gamers’ progress in Labyrinth degree, Nightweaver’s Net occasion beneath the Asylum, , and the Water Harp puzzle within the Forbidden Grove, however extra updates are on the best way:
- Bettering total efficiency
- Addressing crashes and points with greater finish programs
- Addressing points with the trait system
- Different Development blockers and lacking gadgets
- And different fixes!
On console, one of many greater hiccups is the multiplayer. “Fast replace on the PS5 co-op points: Whereas it does work for a few of you, others can’t be part of or invite their associates,” the studio tweeted yesterday. “Relaxation assured that we’re nonetheless working to get this mounted for everyone. Thanks to your persistence!” Notably, Remnant II additionally didn’t launch with crossplay, a stunning absence within the 12 months 2023, particularly for a sport with such an emphasis on squadding up with friends. It’s not clear but when it is going to be added, if in any respect.
None of that has stopped the sport from skyrocketing up the charts, nevertheless. Remnant II is at present the ninth highest sport on Steam in relation to complete concurrent gamers, simply behind Rust. That’s roughly double what the primary sport launched with. The sequel’s timing couldn’t have been higher both, sneaking in simply forward of Baldur’s Gate III on August 3.
