Remnant: From the Ashes DLC ‘Swamps of Corsus’ Now Available
Remnant: From the Ashes was one of my favourite games from last year, and it’s a gift that keeps on giving with regular updates and DLC. The latest, Swamps of Corsus, just hit Playstation 4 and Xbox One – so it’s time to jump back into that desolate world to check out what’s new!
The biggest addition is an all-new Survival Mode with roguelike elements that tasks players with surviving as long as they can after starting with nothing, but that’s not all that’s new in the world of Corsus…
Here’s the press release:

About Remnant: From the Ashes – Swamps of Corsus
With this new DLC, players can experience a brand-new rogue-like game mode with “Survival Mode” and fight for their lives in a revamped Corsus zone exclusively in Adventure Mode. The new mode thrusts players into a completely randomized permadeath experience that challenges them to progress as far as they can in one life. Players start at the Labyrinth with nothing but a Repeater Pistol, a few consumables and a handful of scrap, where they begin their journey randomly through corrupted World Stones to various biomes and fight for survival against hordes of enemies that get stronger with each stage. Those brave enough to take on this intense challenge have the chance of earning epic rewards, such as new weapons – like the Hero’s Sword that unleashes a powerful wave attack – and new armor, including the Carapace Armor that reduces damage when equipped.
In the upgraded Corsus zone accessible through Adventure Mode, the Cult of Iskal has claimed the swamps for themselves. However, all hope is not lost for players, as a lone holdout remains, out of reach of the Iskal’s grasp. To change the future of Corsus, players must confront the Queen and stop the Iskal once and for all – or choose to help her complete the Iskal’s plan. Exploring Corsus in Adventure Mode gives players the chance to earn unique rewards – including three powerful weapons – by overcoming various challenges in the form of deadly overworld enemies, four side dungeons and two epic bosses, like the menacing Barbed Terror.
Below is a detailed list of features for Swamps of Corsus:
- New Mode – Survival: Players fight for their lives as they begin their journey with nothing but a pistol, some scrap and the skin on their back in this new rogue-like game mode! Those brave enough will travel randomly through corrupted World Stones to different biomes, scrap-up gear, fight insanely-difficult bosses and test their endurance.
- The Iskal Rise – The swamps of Corsus swarm with new content! Players will discover a plethora of new content in Corsus, including a new zone, new bosses, new stories, new events, new quests, and more.
- Lock & Load – Adventurers will collect new items, new armor, new weapons, new mods and new traits.
- Armor Skins – By defeating bosses in Survival Mode, or the Hard and Nightmare difficulties in Campaign and Adventure Mode, players earn Glowing Shards which can be used to purchase alternate armor skins for every piece of armor available in the game.
Remnant: From the Ashes is a third-person survival action shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monstrous creatures. As one of the last remnants of humanity, you set out alone or alongside up to two other players to face down hordes of deadly enemies and epic bosses, and try to carve a foothold, rebuild, and then retake what was lost.
Remnant: From the Ashes is available digitally for $39.99 on PC (Steam), Xbox One and PlayStation®4. The physical version is also available now at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, among other retailers for PC, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One for $39.99.
