Remnant 2 dev “would love” something like the original’s Survival Mode

Remnant 2's director expresses interest in a Survival Mode similar to the one in the first game for the sequel, but makes no promises.

The director of Remnant 2 is interested in doing something similar to the first Remnant’s Survival Mode, although they’ve made it clear that this isn’t a concrete plan right now, instead offering up an ‘unofficial’ explanation to what they hope developer Gunfire Games can do in the future.

Remnant 2 director David Adams would love to see something akin to the first Remnant’s Survival Mode in the co-op game sequel at some point but notes that it isn’t exactly something that’s on the cards for Gunfire Games as of right now.

Remnant From the Ashes added a Survival Mode in the Swamps of Corsus DLC, and it actually used some tried and true roguelike elements to help keep the experience feeling fresh. A mode like this is missing from Remnant 2, and Adams has given a noncommittal, if still hopeful, answer to fans.

“Right now, we are focused on the second DLC we’re working on. That’s the ‘official’ answer. The ‘unofficial’ answer is we would love to explore a new game mode. Maybe not exactly like Survival, but something that scratches the same itch.”

“As a team, we are pretty organic in our plans for the game… for instance, the Aberration event we did in October wasn’t some master planned update; it was something we tried out that we thought would be cool, so we released it to the players for free,” Adams tells eXputer. “The short answer is: who knows? We love the game and want to keep adding stuff to give more value to our players.”

So that’s a ‘no’ right now, but not a ‘no’ forever. Remnant 2’s 2024 plans include two more DLCs, and while we could see something in either of those Adams appears to indicate that it’s not on the cards for either.
