If it wasn’t obvious from our review of Remnant: From the Ashes, I’m a big fan of the game. However, after beating it twice, I’ve put it down. Though, it would seem that Gunfire Games is intent on having me and countless others pick it back up with their recently announced content plans. Two updates are planned for September and both are free; Adventure mode and Leto’s Lab.
Adventure Mode adds an update that many have requested, the ability to re-roll individual worlds instead of the entire game. Once this update is released on September 12, 2019, players will be able to re-roll every world except for Corsus. Your current progress won’t be lost and you’ll still keep your items and traits. What’s nice about is this will reset the dungeons, so you’ll be able to revisit them over and over. Or re-roll due to a certain dungeon or item not currently found in your current world.
Then on September 19th, 2019, is a new dungeon called Letos’ Lab, which will randomly spawn on Earth.
Leto’s Lab takes you on a quest through Research Station Alpha. The lab was established to research the mysterious red crystals, with the initial goal of using them as a source of infinite energy. The head researcher, Leto Apostolakis, theorized the crystals could be used for something else – to bridge space-time for near instantaneous travel. He was the one to unlock the World Stone on Ward 16 allowing mankind to take their first fledgling trips to other worlds. Leto’s experiments quickly diverged from their initial goal as he started using the World Stones to fuel a series of dubious experiments. The lab continued operating for months after the Root invaded, but was ultimately forced to evacuate when one of Leto’s experiments went awry.
The Leto’s Lab dungeon can be found dynamically spawned in Earth. It is unique among the other dungeons in Remnant as it reveals more backstory about the world and mixes in light puzzles with intense combat – including a new boss fight. It’ll take a sharp eye, steady aim, and a little luck to make it out alive!
Again, it’s nice to see that a developer is still looking to make an already amazing game, even better. With free DLC to boot! Looks like I’ll be firing this game up again very shortly, and you should as well.
Now, we just need a performance patch and we’re good to go.
Remnant: From the Ashes is currently available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
