Unlike the start of the previous generation, where game publishers were trigger happy when it came to reselling older titles at a higher resolution or framerate, this generation has seen a shift toward free next-gen upgrades (with some exceptions). The latest game to get a free next gen patch is the action-rpg Remnant: From the Ashes.
Making the announcement on its website, the developers said “We're incredibly excited to announce that on Thursday, May 13, Remnant: From the Ashes will receive a free major upgrade patch that will add the option to run the game at 4K resolution at 30fps the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, or 1080p resolution at 60fps on both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S!”
That is not all however, as the team confirmed that the game will be coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC (and can also be purchased outright from the Microsoft Store).
Remnant: From the Ashes is a tough but rewarding third-person shooter with satisfying gameplay, selling over 1.6 million copies. This free next-gen upgrade will only serve to improve that further – though it is slightly disappointing to see the 60fps mode limited to 1080p. Described by some as “Dark Souls with guns”, now is a better time than ever to check out Remnant: From the Ashes.
