SALES /PLAYER COUNT & DEALS
Remnant 2's now sold 2 million copies, and I'm not 2 surprised
Remnant 2's done very well. Granted, the first game, Remnant: From the Ashes, wasn't terrible either. We gave it a 77 back in our review back in 2019—a respectable score. It can't be stated how much its sequel stepped things up.
Even if you just run the numbers: PC Gamer's Rick Lane gave it 84 in his Remnant 2 review, saying that it gave him "exactly what I want from gaming, namely unique and exciting adventures with my pals that never rely on the numbers going up to keep me planted in my chair."
The public seems to agree with that assessment. Remnant 2 sold a million copies in just four days. Well, now that number's doubled.
This was revealed in a quarterly report by the Embracer Group, which states the game: "sold more than 2 million units and generated more than SEK 700 million in Net Sales". Payday 3 gets a bit of a finger-wagging soon after. Not surprising, given its catastrophic launch, which the report very nicely calls "mixed." Honestly, Embracer's been having a really bad year overall, which begs the question: why is Remnant 2 continuing to do well?

This Cyberpunk 2077 Mod restores 100 NPCs that were cut from the game
Modder ‘L3X4RS’ has released a pretty cool mod for CD Projekt RED’s action adventure game, Cyberpunk 2077. This mod attempts to restore the crowd/NPCs from the E3 2018 build. In total, it restores around 100 NPCs that were cut from the final version.
Now I should note that this mod does not increase the crowd/NPC density. As such, you won’t see the same amount of NPCs on screen with the E3 2018 build. What this mod does is basically increase the diversity of the NPCs. This means that you won’t be seeing the exact same NPCs over and over again while exploring Nightcity.
>> There are no screenshots nor videos of the mod.
