When is the Remnant 2 The Forgotten Kingdom release date? Hold onto your World Stone, Wanderers – the multiverse isn’t done with you yet. Gunfire Games has unveiled the next DLC coming to Remnant 2, and that means new weapons, bosses, and archetypes are right around the corner.

Remnant 2’s latest DLC announcement arrives five months after the launch of the Remnant 2 The Awakened King DLC and marks the second installment of three DLC packs on Gunfire Games’ post-launch roadmap. The Forgotten Kingdom DLC promises “unimaginable worlds” and “unrelenting odds”, which pretty much sums up everything we love about the shooter-style soulslike game – just check out our Remnant 2 review if you don’t believe us. Now that you’re suitably convinced, here’s what to expect from the Remnant 2 The Forgotten Kingdom DLC release date.

The Forgotten Kingdom DLC release date

The Remnant 2 Forgotten Kingdom DLC release date is April 23, 2024. This was confirmed in the official announcement trailer released by Gunfire Games.

It launches on PC via Steam, Game Pass, and the Epic Games Store, as well as on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S for console users.

Be aware that this Remnant 2 DLC does not come as a free update – to experience everything it has to offer, you must purchase it separately or as part of the Remnant 2 DLC. This extends to Remnant 2 on Game Pass, which grants subscribers free access to the base game only. There is a way to access the Remnant 2 DLC without buying it if you plan to experience it in Remnant 2 co-op, but it comes with some caveats.

The Forgotten Kingdom DLC story

Principal designer Ben Cureton already confirmed to PCGamesN that the Remnant 2 DLC locations would correspond to the three main biomes in this iteration of the multiverse. We’re headed back to Yaesha to uncover a lost tribe and defeat a vengeful stone spirit called Lydusa. We can expect new allies and storylines as we explore Yaesha’s forests and ziggurats – and there’ll probably be a twist or two in store before we wrap it up and do it all again.

The Forgotten Kingdom DLC gameplay

The Forgotten Kingdom announcement trailer confirms that Gunfire Games won’t be straying from Remnant 2’s roots for The Forgotten Kingdom DLC. We’ll still be charging through procedurally generated maps, crafting powerful build synergies, and blasting up hordes of enemies – only this time around, stone statues and magic pottery are standing in our way.

We’ve already caught a glimpse of one of the latest Remnant 2 bosses to arrive in Yaesha: a stone statue wielding a spear in one hand and what appears to be a magic cannon fused to the other. This boss arena is flanked by smaller statues which are liable to join the fray once we’ve got their champion on the ropes. Naturally, we expect plenty of Remnant 2 weapons to expand our arsenal and help us overcome these challenges and reach the end of The Forgotten Kingdom DLC intact.

Yaesha is a fiendishly puzzle-heavy biome, and we expect The Forgotten Kingdom’s new locations to include more riddles like the Remnant 2 plinth puzzle and Remnant 2 water harp puzzle. The announcement trailer shows off one location full of buzz-saw traps and spike pits that seems to hint at an expansion of The Lament, one of the most memorable dungeons in the roguelike game.

The Invoker, the Remnant 2 The Forgotten Kingdom DLC archetype, wields magic in its hands as Yaesha enemies draw near.

The Forgotten Kingdom DLC archetype

The Invoker is the latest Remnant 2 archetype to appear in the RPG game, and we’re already curious to see how it’ll change our approach to combat and team composition in co-op. Given its name, we’re willing to bet the Invoker will be a magic-based support class. Either way, we’ll be sure to keep you updated after its official reveal trailer drops soon.

The Invoker follows the Remnant 2 Ritualist introduced in The Awakened King DLC last year. Just like the Ritualist, this new addition to the roster is guaranteed to unlock powerful Remnant 2 dual archetype synergies with the core classes.
