Remnant: From the Ashes

Remnant: From the Ashes is a third-person survival action shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monstrous creatures.

It's being called Dark Souls with guns - but that doesn't feel right. There's Dark Souls elements (mostly how hard, respawing enemies and bonfire like checkpoints (but only the most recent one in the world can be traveled to...these ARE checkpoints, not Bonfire/Lantern replacements). There's elements of Rogue-like games in here too. And diablo-esq looting (although mostly for upgrade materials).

It's a third person shooter where your main defense is to dodge...or use abilities gained from each boss.

If you're finding the game/boss you're on to hard - re-roll campaign and restart...but the world scales up with you.

It's "procedurally generated" in that the layout of each area will change (although to be honest, not in any meaningful way) but the dungeons and bosses you'll encounter will vary from campaign to campaign. (Add in Affixes like diablo that change enounters too. Normal Boss Shroud? Easy. Enchanted Shroud? Let's re-roll that campaign: ) This means the abilities you earn (that come from bosses) won't be the same for every player as boss order changes.

A friend and I have been having good fun in co-op. It's definitely an AA title, but the price reflects that.

Hooray, the cricket-themed one-player adventure I’ve always wanted to- what? Oh. :(

Austin Walker over at Waypoint is strawberry floating loving this. I'm tempted, but I don't really like the art style from what I've seen.

Bought it, played 30 mins, refunded it.

Will prob buy when it drops in price but thought it looked bobbins. Can imagine it's much better in coop.

The first area certainly is generic post apocalyptic city - I'm told it gets more varied later on

But it is not (so far) a looker...and I'd imagine it'll never be. It's very much an AA title

Apparently it doesn't really start getting good for a few hours, but when it goes places it goes places.

But yeah, the screenies do look a bit rubbish.

Worth it in singleplayer or just co-op?

I've enjoyed it in both - it's pretty easy to drop/in out.

Watched EZA playing it the other day, they were in a sewerery area and it just reminded me of Bloodborne.
