  • Remnant 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Remnant: From the Ashes developed by Gunfire Games. 
  • The Xbox Series X version of Remnant 2 comes in two separate discs while the PlayStation 5 version of the game is in a single disc.

In an observation made by certain users on various forums, it seems that the Xbox Series X version of the recently released Remnant 2 comes in two separate discs. Contrary to this, the PlayStation 5 version of the game comes on a singular disc.

Remnant 2 Discs
Remnant 2’s Xbox Series X discs showed by user Ghillie007 on Reddit.

The disc was shared by user Ghillie007 on Reddit and proceeded to gain traction on forums such as ResetEra where it was eventually discovered that the Series X version is the outlier, or rather the PlayStation 5 version depending on how you look at it. We can assume the PlayStation 5 version comes on a single disc on account of its Kraken technology which reduces the install sizes of most if not all PlayStation 5 games by a decent margin.

This also makes Remnant 2 the second game to be released on two discs for the Xbox Series X, the first being Microsoft Flight Simulator. On the contrary, the PlayStation 5 hasn’t had a single multi-disc title so far, however, the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is confirmed to be releasing on two discs.

Remnant 2 itself is a massive game. When talking about it, one of the game’s developers Ben Cureton clarified that it would take hundreds of hours to see and collect everything Remnant 2 has to offer citing that it has “secrets within secrets.” He further went on to say that players with as much as 400 hours into the game even many of the game’s own developers hadn’t seen 100% of what the game has. 

Remnant 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Remnant: From the Ashes. The first game launched back in 2019 and was highly praised for its unique spin on the Souls-like genre by implementing the genre’s notable mechanics into a third-person shooter semi-rogue-lite. It certainly wasn’t a perfect title, the game was criticized for its somewhat subpar loot system as well as a vague, incomprehensible storyline. 

Remnant 2 however has launched to an even more positive stream of praise. Reviews have cited its iterations over the first game’s flaws and its expansions to its predecessor’s lackluster systems as major positives. Of particular note has been the game’s lengthy lineup of engaging boss fights, many of which are even randomized through some clever procedural generation. 

Remnant 2 is now available for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 5, Steam, and the Epic Games Store
