Should You Play Remnant from the Ashes before Remnant 2

Remnant 2 is coming to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S on July 25, though everyone who pre-ordered the game is eligible for early access three days before its official release, so on July 21. Many have begun to wonder whether or not it was necessary to play its predecessor, Remnant from the Ashes, in order to make the most of its sequel, without losing important plot details. For this reason, we have decided to write this article in which we answer this question, making very specific references.


Should You Play Remnant from the Ashes before Remnant 2

Remnant 2, as announced by the game developers themselves, is the direct sequel to Remnant from the Ashes, which means that the game continues where its predecessor left off. For this reason, therefore, playing the first chapter of the series is certainly a recommended thing to do, in order to have a clearer and more complete vision of what the story and the game world are. Some areas, such as Yaesha, in fact, will also be present in Remnant 2, so prior knowledge of them is certainly more than recommended in order not to be caught unprepared and not to miss even the slightest detail.

Recall that Remnant 2 is set in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by very dangerous creatures that threaten people's safety. The events that are told are those that derive from what happened in the first chapter, so it is also for this reason that having played Remnant from the Asches before Remnant 2 is certainly a recommended thing. Although, as it was possible to guess from a game trailer released by the developers, there will be a sort of introductory cutscene that will explain what happened in the first chapter, this is certainly not enough to have complete knowledge, but only to have a general picture of the situation.

Furthermore, even on the gameplay side, although there will be some news and improvements in Remnant 2, many things have been inherited from its predecessor. Anyone who has played Remnant from the Ashes will certainly have some more advantage over those who have not, as they will already be familiar with some game mechanics. Otherwise, however, you may need a little more time to assimilate the various game mechanics present in Remnant 2.

Ultimately, what we recommend you do is play Remnant from the Ashes before Remnant 2, so that you can have a complete view of the game universe created by the developers, as well as be able to make comparisons with the first chapter and understand how the team decided to improve, add or remove things. Playing Remnant from the Ashes before Remnant 2 is not exactly a mandatory thing, but it is certainly a recommended thing that we feel we recommend to all those who intend to immerse themselves in the ruthless and cruel world of Remnant 2.
