The alien invasion has happened, so you and a few friends have some work to do.


This post-apocalypse has a different flavor. Remnant: From The Ashes is a co-op shooter from Gunfire Games, the team behind Darksiders 3, and it tackles the end of worlds in a different way with gameplay that takes from Left 4 Dead, Dark Souls, and more

In the interview below, Maza teases some info on the alien invasion that sets the stage for Remnant, discusses magical presence in this post-apocalyptic story, breaks down the deadly combat style, and the reception of players thus far.
