Remnant 2

In some surprising news, Remnant 2 and Remnant: From the Ashes have both been made available on Xbox Game Pass today.

If you haven't kept tabs on this series, Remnant 2 by Gunfire Games has been one of the video game highlights of this year, offering up a quality solo and co-op Soulslike experience. The same title also received its first DLC update "The Awakened King" earlier this month.

It follows on from the first game, Remnant: From the Ashes, which was originally released on the Xbox One and multiple other platforms in August 2019. It's also previously been released on Game Pass. The reasons behind this surprise release on Xbox Game Pass today aren't known, but both titles have also been made available on PC Game Pass.
