What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Remnant: From the Ashes is an upcoming action adventure game for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PCs. The game is set on a post-apocalyptic Earth, after creatures known as the Root have invaded and destroyed most of the planet’s population and environments. Survivors have gathered together to not only attempt to push back the Root, but also take the fight to them on their own planets. Players will select from three different character “archetypes,” but will be able to specialize and progress through the game based on the gear and kind of weapons they select to use in missions. This is vital because missions and levels are dynamically generated, with more than 100 monsters and 20 bosses spawning into levels to provide a constant challenge for gamers. To even the odds, up to three players can partner together to take down these enemies with their skills and weapons. Between missions, players can craft new items and weapons for use in battle, and can acquire objects to give their equipment new abilities. Players can expect to use guns, swords, and magical abilities to destroy opponents in frequent combat scenes, which manage to fall to the ground and eventually disappear. There shouldn’t be much blood or gore shown from these fights. Other than this, there shouldn’t be any inappropriate content included in the game.
