Remnant 2 is the sequel to the popular 2019 title, Remnant: From The Ashes. The sequel builds upon the foundations of the first game and improves it. The first game faced a lot of technical issues like errors and crashes, and unfortunately, Remnant 2 is the same as players report experiencing the “DirectX 12 is not supported on your system. Try running without the -dx12 or -d3d12 command line argument” error or LowLevelFatalError.
