Gearbox Publishing and Gunfire Games today released a trailer featuring the Handler Archetype class in their upcoming action-survival shooter, Remnant II.
As the press release reads, 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 2 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.
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 will attempt to offer unique experiences.
An updated Archetype system will also give players more flexibility to their play style. Furthermore, it will let groups better sync unique passive abilities and powers together in co-op play. Players will also be able to unlock multiple Archetypes, level them up, and equip them together for a wider variety of play styles.
Gearbox will release Remnant 2 in Summer 2023.
