Remnant II is returning players to the world of the first game. Ravaged, devastated, destroyed, the world is full of various threats that players must overcome. Importantly, players can team up with two other friends or go it alone and face these challenges as a lone wolf. Interestingly, every time players start a new playthrough of the game they will be brought into a new world built from a wide pool of locations, enemies, NPCs, bosses, and weapons.
The new class, The Handler, adds a whole new dynamic to combat. Of course, this dynamic is a pet dog. Using the dog, the Handler focusses on teamwork and canine combat. Additionally, the Handler’s dog can even revive teammates and the Handler themselves. Of course, players can get a better look at the class in the new trailer. Check it out below.
Remnant II is releasing on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S in Summer 2023. So, will you be playing the Handler?
