Remnant: From the Ashes in the Test

There are these games that you have on the Radar. Because it requires sometimes a small coincidence or a well-placed note in a social network of trust. The latter led me into the arms of Remnant: From the Ashes. A Third-Person Shooter in a Dark Souls-style. This wonderful encounter of a special kind, love was the beginning of a hatred such as I haven’t experienced in a long time. Gunslinger Games latest work scores with great Artwork, a beautiful Soundtrack and a very interesting Story, in which vegetable Aliens of mankind, the ass ripped. The Gamplay is mostly a dream, but for a Solo fighter – like me – sometimes a little unfair.

The Happening?

Remnant: From the Ashes catapults us into a world of plant-based inter-dimensional beings has taken over. Humanity seems to be from the face of the earth disappeared, and only creepers umwucherte ruins that whisper of the glory of bygone days. But appearances are deceiving! Under the veil of cutting Silence, stirs hope. A closer-proclaimed chosen one rises from the ashes, sent to save humanity.

In the case of this hero is, of course, to none other than our in-game character. Typical of the Genre, we can in Remnant: From the Ashes of our stretching in an Editor create. We choose between various options for face, hair, and possible facial hair in order to give our figure the desired Outer. In addition, a couple of voices available to us. However, our Protagonist does not speak in the dialogues, usually the sound is only during or after the fight, a word.

Are we with the creation of the main character finished, we enter the world of Remnant: From the Ashes, and the can itself is quite well! The atmosphere is incredibly bleak and threatening. Is not wrong, as it shows! As soon as we have our first steps behind us brought us the first tree to the leather! The plant-human Hybrid is visually somewhere between Groot and something that could have come from Gulliermo del Toro’s head, and at least as strong as he is ugly. Not a Problem! We are equipped with a proud blade that we use to process the wood creep to a small wood. Not a second after we have converted our opponents of hero to heating the material, to pull his (quite grumpy) brothers around the corner and we have to bite directly into the Grass. The developers wanted, it turns out, because just experienced was only the Tutorial in Remnant: From the Ashes and now the madness is just getting started!


Life.The.Repeat! This line is not only a terrific Tom Cuise movie, no, it’s also the Genre the basis of the so-called Souls-Like. A sub-genre, the difficulty level is so damn crisp that only true masochists, or Gaming-legends, your enjoy it. I – humble as I am – have me always somewhere in-between seen and was looking forward to the challenge of what Remnant: From the Ashes to offer me is. So I don’t have this face, completely helpless, I can choose between three classes, each with its own Strengths. As the hunter, which interacts with his hunting rifle at a distance or enemies through walls visible would be. The supporter has a healing Aura, and the looter, with his heavy armor, no less than a tank on two legs. My choice falls on the hunter, because I appreciate a healthy distance between me and the opponent.

Roam the beautiful and the randomly generated worlds of Remnant: From the Ashes is the careless player is quickly marked for death. Every beast, no matter how small, can be at carelessness stumbling block. The “seed”, how the mischief out of a strange Dimension called, is rarely alone on the road, does not make things necessarily easier. But the skirmishes are so much fun to make they also. This is the excellent Gunplay. The control is precise, the hit feedback is superb, and the accompanying Sound of the weapons is the salt in the soup, which makes every victory so damn satisfying. It is different, unfortunately, with the short range. Where one slides with the gun, smooth as a kitten across the field, one is with the sword so stiff and inflexible, like Pinocchio with old age. What was the cause of many of my countless deaths.

Remnant: From the Ashes is, as no different from a Souls-Like to expect hard – really hard – but unlike his great model, is not always fair. Just as a Solo player is one of the Remnant: From the Ashes , the teeth sore to bite. Explore the map as a Single good, the (really exciting) boss fights are quite frustration. There are many to send of the bosses in the battle of the Minions into the race, it is without a Team is almost impossible to be able to Mr. Also, that the worlds through which we move, are all randomly generated. Every run is different, this is a Remnant: From the Ashes a little more unpredictable than other representatives of its genre. I am fighting the Time against a giant, wide sword, comes to meet me the other Time a house high Cthullhu from wood.

We bless the Time we teleport to the last Checkpoint, we took advantage of, tele, without losing, as in Dark Souls, of our resources. In the fight captured the raw materials, you can make the base weapons and armor to acquire or strengthen. With the gained experience points, you rise in Level.

Technically not quite round

First of all: Remnant: From the Ashes is not a AAA Game! And it shows occasionally. The Design of the Monster is jaw-droppingly cool, the animations credible work worthy. It is different with the human figures. Their facial Expressions is hardly available, the movements are very stiff and awkward. To ensure the setting is managed (also in German), so I’ve been listening to their background stories like that.

Remnant: From the Ashes is primarily on Multiplayer designed – with up to two friends at your side, you can go. The Problem, however, is that the multi-player mode is still bugged a bit. As I wanted to read in a Session with friends a note, it’s frozen my Computer so that I had to pull the plug, because I could not turn him off once more and the whole two Times! Also if you still have some problems in order to find mates, as soon as the private Game is set to open to the public. Until there’s another player added to your page, it takes a lot of time. But these are children’s diseases, who have done soon, I hope.

I was surprised by the great Soundtrack, which sounds to be a really dark Setting, very gentle on the boxes.


Remnant: From the Ashes , and I had to some work in our relationship, but in the end we still managed. Yes, the people and their animations are not on the current state of the art, but the more time I spent in his world, the less I noticed it. Also, the occasional, which may have serious Bugs that cost me nerves. Still has me a Remnant: From the Ashes in his spell. The combination of Third-Person Shooter and Souls-like elements works perfectly. The superbly-designed Monster, the super-heavy boss fights, as well as exploring the randomly-generated world unfold in Multiplayer your full potential. Remnant: From the Ashes was love at second sight, but this love has it’s well deserved.
