Remnant: From the Ashes is a new survival-shooter in the works at Darksiders 3 studio, Gunfire Games.

Gunfire Games today announced Remnant: From the Ashes, a third-person survival-action shooter slated for 2019.

Set in a post-apocalyptic future, Earth has been taken over by extradimensional, mysterious, and volatile beings called The Root.

In order to survive the onslaught, players will take the fight to other dimensions where they'll battle through dynamically-generated levels.

Players and up to three of their friends can experience shooting and melee combat as they go up against "deadly monsters and epic bosses."

Expect a character progression system, character customization, gear and weapon crafting, the ability to recruit tradesmen, and more.

Below is a list of features provided in the official announcement alongside a trailer from IGN.

  • Fight, Adapt, Overcome  – Each world will presents new challenges and perils to overcome. Throughout their journey, players will encounter dozens of monsters unique to each environment. Fight tooth-and-nail against creatures both big and small - from towering behemoths the size of buildings to countless hordes of small, deadly terrors. Adapt… or die trying.
  • Explore Terrifying Realms – Explore beautiful, dynamically-generated worlds – each with their own unique creatures and environmental challenges. Gain experience and adapt new strategies to survive the dangers of each world.
  • Craft, Upgrade, Specialize – Band together with others to improve chances of survival. Protect and befriend skilled tradesmen and offer them the safety of a home base. In turn, they will offer valuable skills and resources for upgrades, crafting and enhancements for weapons and gear.
  • Strength in Numbers – The Root are ruthless and deadly. To stand a chance, players will need help - they need a Team. In Remnant: From the Ashes, players can group with up to three other survivors.
