Remnant 2 promises to captivate the gaming world with its strategic combat, extensive gear customization, and diverse worlds teeming with unique creatures and valuable items, ensuring an intense, challenging, and rewarding experience for players. Scheduled for its standard release on July 25, 2023, eager fans who pre-order the Ultimate Edition can already enjoy early access. Priced at $70, this edition offers access to various cosmetic and gameplay items, along with all three DLC Packs that are slated to be released within the first year of the game’s life cycle.


Let’s take a look at some of the impressions from early reviews:

PCGamesN – 8 / 10
Remnant 2 marries Matryoshka level design and sublime set pieces with memorable bosses, all while polishing the combat system and build customization of its genre-bending predecessor to a spit shine.

IGN 9/10
Where Remnant: From The Ashes was a strong first draft, this revolutionary sequel is a sterling looter-shooter soulslike manifesto.
Entertainment Geekly – 4.5 / 5
Remnant II has established itself as a defining experience in the genre by pushing boundaries while honoring its roots. The game is not only a worthy successor to the acclaimed Remnant from the Ashes but also a remarkable addition to the Soulslike genre as a whole.

Gamer Escape – 8 / 10
Though its overarching story is similarly lacking, Remnant II is a significant step up in quality from its predecessor in all the ways that matter. Everything that set the original apart from its contemporaries has been upped considerably. Boss battles are much more memorable and engaging, the procedurally generated levels more interesting, and the classes more impactful.

Destructoid – 8.5 / 10
If you were a fan of Remnant: From the Ashes, chances are you already planned to pick up Remnant 2. If you haven’t played the original but are a fan of souls-like games, or even rogue-likes like Risk of Rain 2 or Returnal, this will be right up your alley.

Polygon – Unscored
I’m over the post-apocalypse, and it’s going to take one hell of a game to get me interested in such a bleak setting for the foreseeable future. Remnant 2 is not that game.

GameSpot – 7 / 10
Remnant 2 builds on its predecessor to create a rewarding and unpredictable experience that’s difficult to put down.

Rock Paper Shotgun – Unscored
Fast, brutal combat meets procedural dimension-hopping in this ambitious sequel.

VideoGamer – Alex Raisbeck – 8 / 10
Remnant 2 successfully evolves on its predecessor, isolating and expanding upon the best aspects to create a cohesive and challenging shooter experience, supplemented by stunningly designed environments and a unique story system. A cooperative game at heart, its single-player campaign takes a hit, but never enough to substantially detract from the game’s successes.
