One of the benefits for preordering Remnant: From the Ashes was the ability to play it a couple days before release. While the VIP preview weekend is still set for Xbox One and PC owners, unforeseen circumstances have resulted in it being cancelled for PlayStation 4. This was revealed on the official website earlier today.
Over the past few days we’ve noticed a number of concerns about the pre-order availability of Remnant: From the Ashes on PlayStation®4. Sadly, due to unforeseen circumstances we will no longer be able to deliver the ‘VIP Preview Weekend’ for PlayStation®4 players. Players with pre-orders will still receive the other bonuses when the game launches on August 20.
Sony will be directly contacting players with existing pre-orders on PlayStation®4. Players eager to play Remnant on PlayStation®4 can do so on August 20 when the game officially launches on all platforms. Purchases will be available through the PlayStation®Store when the game goes live in your region.
We have appreciated your patience while we gathered the most up-to-date information on this issue, and sincerely apologize to all players affected by this. We look forward to seeing you all in Ward 13 on August 20!Gunfire Games via the official website
Not only is this news upsetting, some users have expressed more frustration that the title is no longer available for preorder on PlayStation 4. Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal, except this prevents players from obtaining the three preorder exclusive costumes and head start kit, despite other platforms having the option.
Given the fact these issues are exclusive to PlayStation, some upset fans think the issue is less Gunfire Games and their publisher Perfect World Entertainment and Sony. Unfortunately, there is nothing to link this issue to Sony, making it rather odd.
Thankfully, even if some players will miss out on the additional content and early access, Remnant: From the Ashes is still set to release on Aug. 20, 2019 on all platforms.
