Remnant: From the Ashes franchise has now surpassed over 2.5 million units sold across all platforms to date. This game that was first launched in August last year is dubbed one of the best new games releases of 2019.
The game is a third-person survival action shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monstrous creatures. As one of the last surviving members of humanity, you set out alone or with up to two players on a mission to tackle deadly enemies and bosses.
Some people have even named Remnant: From The Ashes as one of the “biggest hits the decade”. One of the key elements to the success of this game is how attributes are slowed down, compared to other games. Enemy attacks are timed, which give the player a chance to react.
Another crowd-pleasing component is that you need to aim before you shoot. This means that there is no blind firing in remnant. Slowing down the game in this way makes the player choose more methodical approaches and rational thinking.
The variety that Remnant provides in their game doesn’t stop here, the bosses are where Remnant wins. Each boss is unique and interesting to battle according to players. Compare this to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which is ranked as one of the most stressful games on Gambler’s Pick, due to players feeling like they always are on the edge and sweaty when playing.
