Remnant From The Ashes - Subject 2923 Reviews
Easily the best out of the two expansions, yet again, one that ends all too soon. I need more!
Remnant's story conclusion ends with more of a whimper than a bang. The core gameplay remains solid, but the new additions fail to impress.
Subject 2923 stumbles in a few spots but overall does an excellent job of wrapping up the story of Remnant: From the Ashes and offers a short but sweet conclusion for the survivors of Earth.
Subject 2923 adds more loot and a brand new planet called Reisum. The new locale is fun to explore, and the boss fights and enemies are even better.
As a conclusion to Remnant: From the Ashes narrative, Subject 2923 is mediocre, but more than makes up for this fault by introducing a wealth of lore for purists, a solid new biome with a fantastic variety of secrets to discover, and exceptional new boss battles. The story may not be the greatest, yet Subject 2923 manages to conclude Remnant with a bang, not a whimper.
Like the core game, Subject 2923 is so much more fun than it has any right to be. Despite little frustrations, the core package remains enjoyable.
Remnant: From the Ashes – Subject 2923 marks the perfect ending for this title. There’s still a ton of gameplay here for those who want to continue their experience long after the story ends, but from a narrative standpoint, I’m satisfied with the conclusion. The natural flow of unlocking new items can feel slow sometimes, and the creative choices in regards to the new areas are a little bland, so your mileage may vary depending on personal preference.
Adding plenty of new content and lore to enhance the story of the original game, Subject 2923 is an excellent expansion for Remnant: From the Ashes.
While it's a shame that Gunfire Games haven't worked out the best method in presenting a character-led story in this formula of game, it doesn't tarnish too much how enjoyable and tempting Remnant is to go again at its campaign efforts over and over.
If you already own Remnant: From the Ashes then getting this DLC is a must because the adventure within truly feels like its own distinct experience. Overall, this is one impressive chunk of content.
As the latest content for Remnant: From the Ashes, the Subject 2923 DLC is quite satisfying and further enhances the story of the universe created for the game.

Whilst the environments of Reisum and the bosses in the Subject 2923 DLC are some of the best in the game, the opening of the DLC and the overall package doesn't feel like a satisfying end to Remannt's story, making it a fine add-on for hardcore players, but not offering much reason for lapsed players to come back.
