ESDigital Games and Sobaka Studio Release Act 2 Update

ESDigital Games and Sobaka Studio Release Act 2 Update

ESDigital Games and developer Sobaka Studio are thrilled to announce the release of the first content update of the eagerly awaited Act 2 for the Renaissance-inspired post-apocalyptic twin-stick shooter REMEDIUM via Steam Early Access.

Today’s REMEDIUM content update is the first stage in the full Act 2 release, including a new location, new mutant types, boss and new story content being made available for players to experience. A further two locations, enemy types, bosses and additional story arcs will be released over the coming weeks to complete the full Act 2 launch.  

Publisher ESDigital Games is also pleased to announce that there will be NO price increase for REMEDIUM on Steam Early Access following today’s content update. The price will only increase when the team is happy with the content and quality of the game in general and Act 2 in particular. For now, the focus is delivering the most polished and content-complete version of REMEDIUM during its Steam Early Access phase.  

Since the launch of Act 1, the dev team has been busy gathering community feedback and introducing many quality-of-life improvements and new features, many of which were requested by players already active on the Steam Early Access release. Some of these quality-of-life improvements include the balancing of battles to make weak enemies more dynamic, a reworked dash movement, new enemy spawn mechanics, improved VFX, blood effects and HUD, as well as many other cosmetic enhancements to the game world. The team will continue to work with the community on today’s update to improve and polish the upcoming content ahead of the full Act 2 release and extend their thanks for the support and feedback on REMEDIUM’s Early Access launch so far and look forward to further collaboration throughout the development journey. 

The first Act 2 content update for REMEDIUM will go live on Steam at 16.00 GMT/17.00 CET/11.00pm ET/8.00am PT, today, November 30. 

Following directly on from the devastating boss battle at the end of Act 1, REMEDIUM Act 2 opens a new chapter in the hunt for a cure to the Grey plague and to your very survival in the world ravaged by hordes of mutants and chimeras. Armed only with their journal, players must navigate the snowy mountain paths and survive the onslaught of warring tribes of mutants spread across three village locations. In each new location, the blood-thirsty mutants are protected by a terrifying and unique boss, who must be defeated in order to unveil the path to the cure for the disease and the survival of the remaining humans.
