Surprise! Remnant: From The Ashes And Remnant 2 Are Now On Xbox Game Pass

Gunfire Games dropped both Remnant games on Game Pass out of nowhere.


Gunfire Games has garnered a lot of praises with its Remnant series, with both Remnant: From The Ashes and Remnant II scoring favorably with critics and fans alike. If you haven't jumped into the franchise yet, and you're an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, you're in luck: Both Remnant: From The Ashes and Remnant II are now available for download on the service. [Update: A wider list of new Xbox Game Pass game releases for December has been shared, and Game Pass Core is getting new games, too.]

Both games appeared on Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass with no prior announcement, with Gunfire Games electing to shadow drop both titles at once. The games close out a strong month for the Game Pass service, which also saw Thirsty Suitors, Wild Hearts, and Like A Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name added in November.

Now Playing: Remnant 2 Video Review

Remnant II is a particularly surprising addition, as it hit shelves in July 2023 and sold one million copies in its first month--while also maintaining enough sales to remain one of the best-sellers of the year. The game's first major expansion, The Awakened King, launched earlier this month.

GameSpot's 7/10 Remnant II review called it the "kind of sequel that improves upon its predecessor in almost every facet," while praising the game's third-person shooter mechanics and RPG elements. "Remnant 2 continues to build on those foundations," the review says, "with a more dynamic and robust action-adventure that only falters in a couple of areas.

Remnant: From The Ashes and Remnant 2 are available now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. If you need a subscription for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you can get a three-month subscription for a discount right now for a limited time.
