The prequel to Remnant: From the Ashes without VR
Chronos: Before the Ashes, a non-VR remake of Chronos, is being developed for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. Chronos was originally developed for the Oculus VR headset, and while it was received well, being solely a VR game restricted the game from becoming widely known much like Remnant: From the Ashes was.
In Chronos: Before the Ashes, the prequel story of Remnant: From the Ashes, the player takes the role of a young hero, trying to save his home from an ancient evil. To do this, a chosen one is sent to a mysterious labyrinth, full of both fearsome and mystic creatures, along with challenging puzzles. Combat is unforgiving and brutal—but in Chronos: Before the Ashes, death is not the end. Each time the hero fails, he is cast out and must wait one year to return to the labyrinth—you can try again, but one year older. When you start your journey, it’s still easy to get stronger and quicker, but the older you get, the more important your wisdom about the arcane powers will become.
Chronos: Before the Ashes is based on the virtual reality-exclusive Chronos from Gunfire Games, but has been overhauled and optimized to work on all platforms without the need for virtual reality support.
Much like Remnant: From the Ashes, Chronos: Before the Ashes is an Action RPG, features an enjoyable combat system and lots of lore. If you’ve played Remnant, then the world and characters in it will be familiar to you.
Chronos: Before the Ashes releases on December 1st, 2020, for the PS4, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC (Steam).
