Remnant: From the Ashes is a third-person action game along the lines of Dark Souls. Instead of a slew of melee weapons, the game focuses on gunplay. Each game is also randomized so you encounter different bosses and come across different weapons and armor. In order to experience it all, you have to help out other gamers through the online co-op mode.

Today, publisher Perfect World Entertainment and developer Gunfire Games announced that Remnant: From the Ashes has sold more than a million units. To celebrate this milestone, the companies revealed in-game content and rewards for players. It's unclear what a lot of this content is, but we do know that the game is getting a Hardcore Mode. You'll only get one life to complete the game if you choose that.

However, that's not all. The team promised a lot more downloadable content (DLC) in 2020. It's unclear what this DLC includes, but Remnant: From the Ashes is a great game and anything that expands the experience is a welcome addition. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
