We’ll let you in on a little secret – Remnant II is right up there on our Game of the Year 2023 lists. It promises to get even better now that we have the first expansion in house too. Ready for The Awakened King?
Available right now for Remnant II players to enjoy is The Awakened King. This is the first expansion to the all-conquering 5/5 reviewed base game that launched back in August. From Gearbox Publishing and Gunfire Games, you’re getting a new story, more dungeons, an extra area, new Archetype, items, weapons and much, much more.
An all-new Remnant II tale
In The Awakened King for Remnant II, The One True King has awakened and is out for blood. Corrupted by the Root during his near-death slumber, the mad king sees betrayal at every turn and is on a rampage of revenge. Since his castle first arrived in a Dran coastal town, the tides are angry and the weather is chaotic, surfacing all manner of creatures from the depths and leaving many mysteries in its wake. In a brand new storyline, survivors must uncover the secrets behind The One True King by exploring a mysterious new area within the world of Losomn. In this strange new location, survivors will traverse new dungeons, acquire powerful equipment, meet unexpected allies and face new threats in their adventure to reach The One True King and defeat him once and for all.
“All of us at Gunfire are blown away by our awesome community’s continued support and enthusiasm for REMNANT II, and we’re thrilled to kick off a new chapter with our first of three DLCs,” said David Adams, President of Gunfire Games and REMNANT II Game Director. “The Awakened King is the first major expansion for REMNANT II, bringing a new storyline and area within Losomn, the Ritualist Archetype that we’re excited for players to try out and more. We hope players like the new DLC, and there’s more content to come!”
Key expansion features
