Remnant: From the Ashes Hits a Big Sales Milestone
Soulsborne shooter Remnant: From the Ashes has managed to sell over 1 million copies since its launch in August, according to a Wednesday announcement. The game’s developer team at Gunfire Games celebrated the milestone and also announced upcoming content updates.
One of those updates is the new Hardcore Mode difficulty that launched on Thursday alongside several other new features. The new mode has been described as “a new game mode where death is truly the end.”
“Players create a new Hardcore character and play until their first death, after which they are permanently lost,” a press release read. “To maintain a level playing field, Hardcore characters can only play online with other Hardcore characters and will not be able to random matchmake. Players will have to manually invite friends or other stalwart Survivors to a game.”
“The most dangerous challenges will also receive great rewards, as defeating a World Boss on Hardcore mode will drop new rings with powerful effects,” the press release continued. “These items will be available to all of the characters on a player’s account (old and new, Standard and Hardcore) after they’ve obtained them. This means all future characters, including those in Hardcore mode, will begin their journey with greater potential.”
The next content updates are expected to launch in 2020, according to the press release.
