Gearbox Publishing and Gunfire Games released a new video showcasing the skills and abilities of the recently announced Handler Archetype class in their upcoming action-survival shooter title, Remnant II.
The Handler Archetype specializes in canine combat and teamwork to take down any threat that stands in their way. Players can mobilize their faithful dog companion to attack enemies and distract enemies when things get a bit too hectic. The Handler’s Prime Perk allows their companion to revive them or their teammates, while their Archetype Trait reduces all friendly fire done to all allies and themselves. Remnant II arrives on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S in Summer of 2023.
Remnant II plunges players deeper into a devastated world requiring a mix of methodical and frenetic ranged and melee combat against cunning enemies and punishing boss battles. Enter the fray as a lone-wolf or even the odds by teaming up with two friends to overcome daunting challenges. Each time players start a new playthrough of Remnant II they will be brought into a new world built from a wide pool of locations, enemies, NPCs, bosses, and weapons. These dynamically built levels allow for unique experiences as elements are woven organically into the world and narrative.
An updated Archetype system gives players more flexibility to their play style and lets groups better sync unique passive abilities and stunning powers together in co-op play. Multiple Archetypes can be unlocked, leveled up, and equipped together for a wider variety of play styles.
