Following yesterday’s announcement, THQ Nordic and Gunfire Games have shared a proper update on Chronos: Before the Ashes.

As expected, Chronos: Before the Ashes is based on the former VR-exclusive Chronos. The game, which acts as a prequel story of Remnant: From the Ashes, “has been overhauled and optimized to work on all platforms without the need for VR support.”

Here’s an overview of Chronos: Before the Ashes, along with a trailer:

THQ has announced Chronos: Before the Ashes, which by all accounts should be Gunfire Games’ atmospheric RPG originally released in 2016. Although it was designed for VR, this version will presumably ditch that feature.

Here’s an overview of Chronos, along with a teaser trailer for the new “Before the Ashes” version:

A few years ago, Darksiders III developer Gunfire Games made the VR adventure RPG Chronos. It now appears to be releasing on other platforms, including Switch. A rating for the title popped up in the ESRB database this week.

Here’s some additional information about Chronos, along with a trailer:

When THQ closed its doors, a large portion of former developers from Vigil Games moved on to Crytek USA. But just last month, Vigil founder and Crytek USA head David Adams left the company. He has since gone on to create a brand new independent studio, Gunfire Games.

Gunfire Games is just getting started and is employing a handful of people. All are leads from Crytek USA.

While things are definitely early, Adams told Polygon that Gunfire is exploring the possibility of returning to Darksiders. In fact, the studio has spoken with Darksiders IP owner Nordic Games.
