I used to be already fairly excited for Remnant 2, however the brand new Summer time Game Fest trailer (beneath) has sealed my intent to type one other co-op posse. And developer Gunfire Video games introduced at the moment that Remnant 2 will probably be out on the finish of July, so it will not be lengthy.

Simply have a look at the large clean purple dude on the finish! Now that is a boss. The earlier game, Remnant: From the Ashes, additionally sends gamers to some odd dimensions, however a certain quantity of the strangeness is reliant on surprising colours in foliage or water. It really works and Remnant 2 takes us again to areas like that, however I’m glad to see we’re going even additional afield. Like, house, I suppose?

Wherever it’s, there are robots. I typically discover robots to be a boring enemy sort, however these ones look mighty characterful—considered one of them seems to be just like the demon spawn of GLaDOS.

There’s numerous different stuff to name out right here: The Matrix Sentinel-looking boss, the chubby mosquito factor, the purple dude I like a lot. I sort of do not need to watch any extra trailers so I may be stunned, however if you wish to know extra, the story trailer launched yesterday is an intro to the world. It is also value testing the archetype trailers for a greater sense of what sort of game it’s, and there is a nine-minute-long gameplay video, too.

The primary Remnant had its quirks and flaws, nevertheless it was quietly nice, so I hope Remnant 2 lives as much as my expectations. I did get an opportunity to briefly attempt it again at GDC, and I favored what I performed.

On PC, Remnant 2 will launch on Steam and the Epic Video games Retailer on July 25. It will even be out there on PS5 and Xbox Sequence X/S.
