Gearbox Publishing and Gunfire Games are excited to announce today The Awakened King, the first premium DLC for REMNANT II, is available now on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S for $9.99. Fans can now purchase the DLC Bundle for $24.99 to get The Awakened King DLC and have access to the two additional packs once they are available next year. Anyone who has purchased the Ultimate Edition of REMNANT II has access to the DLC at no additional cost. To celebrate the launch of The Awakened King, starting today, those who haven’t picked up REMNANT II yet can get the Standard, Deluxe and Ultimate Edition versions of the best-selling survival shooter for 30% off its retail price on Arc Games and Steam.
“All of us at Gunfire are blown away by our awesome community’s continued support and enthusiasm for REMNANT II, and we’re thrilled to kick off a new chapter with our first of three DLCs,” said David Adams, President of Gunfire Games and REMNANT II Game Director. “The Awakened King is the first major expansion for REMNANT II, bringing a new storyline and area within Losomn, the Ritualist Archetype that we’re excited for players to try out and more. We hope players like the new DLC, and there’s more content to come!”
In this new DLC for REMNANT II, The One True King has awakened and is out for blood. Corrupted by the Root during his near-death slumber, the mad king sees betrayal at every turn and is on a rampage of revenge. Since his castle first arrived in a Dran coastal town, the tides are angry and the weather is chaotic, surfacing all manner of creatures from the depths and leaving many mysteries in its wake. In a brand new storyline, survivors must uncover the secrets behind The One True King by exploring a mysterious new area within the world of Losomn. In this strange new location, survivors will traverse new dungeons, acquire powerful equipment, meet unexpected allies and face new threats in their adventure to reach The One True King and defeat him once and for all.
Players that own the DLC can access it by going to the World Stone, choosing “Adventure Mode” then selecting “The Awakened King”. If players choose to experience the DLC through the Campaign instead, the DLC is added seamlessly to the main campaign and may or may not appear like any other storyline upon rolling a new campaign.
A unique feature of The Awakened King DLC, as well as all the next REMNANT II DLCs, is that players without the DLC can still playthrough the storyline by teaming up with those who own it. However, to make use of any DLC-specific items they acquire, they will need to own the DLC themselves.
Below is a detailed list of features for The Awakened King:
· New Storyline, Dungeons and Area Based in the World of Losomn: Delve deeper into the land of Losomn and experience a brand new storyline about the One True King – whose mind has been poisoned by the Root and is out for revenge against those who oppose him.
· New Archetype – The Ritualist: Leveraging status effects to punish foes, this new Archetype is a master of pain and suffering.
· Many Items and Powerful Weapons that Enhance Gameplay: Outfit your survivor to survive this more deadly version of the world of Losomn by choosing from a host of new weapons and modifications, along with new items, like amulets and rings.
· New Bosses, Characters and Fearsome Creatures to Encounter: Mysterious threats and survivors, of unknown origin, emerge from the ocean depths and roam the streets bringing new challenges for all players.
With the release of the DLC, the REMNANT II franchise will continue to expand with more content, including previously mentioned DLCs, along with partnerships with a wide array of partners, such as G FUEL and Dark Horse Comics.
