    Here is an overview of the October 31:

    Hardcore Mode

    Hardcore Mode is a new game mode where death is truly the end. Players create a new Hardcore character and play until their first death, after which they are permanently lost. To maintain a level playing field, Hardcore characters can only play online with other Hardcore characters and will not be able to random matchmake. Players will have to manually invite friends or other stalwart Survivors to a game. The most dangerous challenges will also receive great rewards, as defeating a World Boss on Hardcore mode will drop new rings with powerful effects. These items will be available to all of the characters on a player’s account (old and new, Standard and Hardcore) after they’ve obtained them. This means all future characters, including those in Hardcore mode, will begin their journey with greater potential.

    Quality of Life

    Remnant: From the Ashes‘ latest quality of life improvements will implement some of the most frequently requested systems. Examples include a communications wheel with access to emotes– many of which are unlocked through normal gameplay– environment pings and markers, the ability to hide helmets, a toggle to disable tutorial prompts and more balance changes.
