Have you been enjoying Gunfire Games’ latest release, Remnant II? Today sees the launch of its first DLC, Remnant II – The Awakened King, bringing a ton of new content. To mark the occasion, Trivium vocalist and guitarist Matthew Kiichi Heafy ‘Wielder of the Plague’ to support the launch.

Wielder of the Plague was initially teased earlier this year with fans now able to hear the song in full. A bespoke Remnant II music video accompanies the release.

“Video games and video game music have been a part of my life since I was 5 years old.” said Matt Heafy. ”At 5, I beat my first video game (Super Mario Bros.) and my journey went to RPGs like Final Fantasy, and then FPSs like Doom. The first time I heard the music in Doom (I was 11) – I knew someday I wanted to make music like this in video games. I didn’t even know about metal or that the music in that game was metal.

“Fast forward to 2023. I am so excited – honoured – privileged – and thankful to say I’ve been asked to compose some music inspired by Remnant II for the promotion of the game. I can’t wait for you to hear this.”

Furthermore, Heafy will also be raffling a Remnant II swag kit on his social channels. Plus an exclusive Remnant II x Matt Heafy collaboration shirt.
