Developer Gunfire Games announced that their recently-launched action game Remnant: From The Ashes (read our review here) will be receiving a series of free updates beginning this week. The first update will add an “Adventure Mode” on September 12, while a new dungeon, “Leto’s Lab”, will be added on September 19.
Here’s an overview of the two updates, courtesy of publisher Perfect World Entertainment:
The Adventure Mode update will allow players to ”re-roll” the following biomes: Ruined Earth, Rhom and Yaesha, without having to play all the way through the main campaign. Players and their teammates can activate the mode from the World Stone in Ward 13, and select to roll one of these dynamically generated biomes, then continue to explore dungeons, encounter new enemies, or fight world bosses. In addition to giving players a chance to uncover all of the game’s secrets, all of their progress and items obtained in Adventure Mode stay with their character.
As for the new Leto’s Lab dungeon, this 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.
Remnant: From The Ashes is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
