Remnant 2 is already improving as the days go by

Remnant 2 is a soulslike, third-person shooter where humanity is brought to the brink of extinction and a handful of chosen survivors must protect what is left from being destroyed by eldritch horrors. It features a deep character-building system, an array of challenging monsters to defeat, and it has a simple and intuitive multiplayer component where three players can band together seamlessly in online co-op.

Following the celebration of Remnant 2 selling one million units, Gunfire Games isn't wasting any time capitalizing on the momentum gained from this milestone. The developers are already hard at work improving the base game as fast as possible so that more can come in and enjoy one of the best Xbox games released this year at its finest.
