Remnant From the Ashes drops its biggest and last DLC, Subject 2923, today

Today’s a bittersweet day for Perfect World and Gunfire Games, as their co-op shooter Remnant From the Ashes is dropping its biggest DLC ever – but also its last. The update, dubbed Subject 2923, is live today on PC and console with a $9.99 pricepoint (there’s a mega edition for $49.99 that bundles everything together, though).

“Remnant: From the Ashes – Subject 2923 has players pick up where the main story left off as they continue the fight for humankind. In the DLC’s brand new campaign mode, players will discover the origins of “The Dreamers” — humans bonded with powerful entities — and how they connect to the dreaded Root, the evil force plaguing Earth. To successfully put an end to the Root once and for all, players must overcome new puzzles and threats, traverse unfamiliar locations, and partner up with unexpected allies in hopes of saving the world. These new challenges will take players to a rural region of Earth, into a military base called ‘Ward Prime’, where the U.S. military began the Dreamer Program in the 1960’s – as well as the new world of Reisum, a frosty, mountainous, world inhabited by the Urikki, a horde of humanoid rats.”

“Those who take on this final adventure for Remnant: From the Ashes can also expect to discover new quests to complete, new gear to acquire – like the Frostborne axe that inflicts frostbite on enemies – along with new enemies and challenging bosses to take down,” the studios say. “Along with the vast array of content in the new campaign mode, Subject 2923 also adds new threats and a suite of new rewards to the game’s Adventure Mode and rogue-like Survival Mode.”

If you’re tempted to panic over the idea that this is the last big DLC, don’t; Gunfire Games has already said it will continue to maintain the game with bug-fixing and balance patches and is already contemplating a follow-up game.

Got this on the Epic store for free (both myself and a friend) really enjoying it. We’re going to hold off on the DLC till we finish the main campaign as we are not very twitch orientated based on age :D and some of those bosses are a pain!

Me too! I’ve heard tons of good things about it and been waiting on a sale, was pleasantly surprised to see it be free on the EGS. My poor old video card doesn’t like the game that much, but it’s been as good as folks have said and I’m enjoying the heck outta it.

Only on the first proper “boss” now, I think (big dragon guy) and man is that a different fight compared to everything leading up to it. I ain’t even ashamed to say it’s kicked my ass more than a few times and that I still have yet to beat it. But when it happens, victory shall be sweet.

I got it on Steam a while ago, based on seeing some Warframe content creators who were checking it out during one of the (many) gaps between Warframe updates. It’s not really my thing, but I don’t despise it. Which is more than I can say for Dark Souls.

So the game is an online ARPG that has only been out for a year, and they’re already abandoning development and putting it in maintenance mode? No thanks to whatever follow-up game they’re considering.

Sorta kinda not really? I mean, it’s got group play, but it seems more or less like Dark Souls but with shooting and stuff.

I don’t see any problem with creating an online game that’s not designed to last forever, and I don’t think they’ve ever sold it as a game that would be getting years of updates and longterm support. The game isn’t going away, there’s an offline single player mode as well.

It’s online in the sense that Dark Souls is online. Optional multiplayer, but not locked to online-only. And its in ‘maintenance mode’ in the sense that… Bloodborne or Dark Souls 3 or The Surge are in ‘maintenance mode’.

In that development is done, and that all intended content is finished and delivered.

So do you not play any games then? Every company makes a game, (online modes, coop etc) then drops a few dlc then releases a new game afterwards….

I think it’s more like “Sorta Dark Souls, but with guns and co-op.” It was never really meant to compete with Diablo or Path of Exiles. And it’s less like maintenance mode and more like… I don’t know, the story they wanted to tell is now finished? Again, it’s not meant to be an ever-changing live service.

More like an ARPG with online functions.. the saves aren’t even hosted by the developers and you can use maxed out saves from some download if you find it.

It’s not an online ARPG, it’s an offline singleplayer ARPG with the option to play online co-op with up to two or three others, iirc. It’s a Souls-like with semi-random generated maps and more emphasis on using firearms (or at least last I checked there was no way to do 100% melee).

So basically this is like Diablo 2 getting an expansion and the devs will continue to bugfix/balance things but will likely not add anything significant beyond what’s already in the game at this point.

Last I checked there were many things to unlock and reasons to keep replaying the game because you can’t get everything in one playthrough. Not to mention the RPG-esque leveling and upgrading gear and so on. So it’s not like this game isn’t feature complete or anything.

That sums it up well. As someone who normally hates souls-like games, this is one I love. It’s an intriguing story, tough-but-fair combat (at least for someone with MY level of ability…) and enough randomness to make starting an alt from scratch still fun.

I’ve got a couple other family members into it as well and it’s always a fun night when we dive in together.
