Seekers of the Storm will bring a lot of new content to Risk of Rain 2, such as new Survivors, new levels, new monsters, and more! Keep an eye out for future Dev Thoughts for more information.
Risk of Rain 2: Survivors of the Void, the game’s first expansion, is available now on Switch. This expansion features two Survivors—the skillful markswoman Railgunner, and the eldritch monstrosity Void Fiend—and the endless Simulacrum game mode, as well as new items, stages, and more.
Risk of Rain 2 has also received a free, substantial overhaul of the core game for all players on consoles, future-proofing the title for faster bug fixes, performance improvements, and more content across platforms.
Risk of Rain Returns is now available on Switch! Carefully designed, beautifully remastered, and loaded with new ways to play—Risk of Rain is back and better than ever! This remake of the classic Risk of Rain packs enhanced visuals, an updated codebase, and tons of new content.
No two runs in the iconic roguelike are the same, and that has never been truer. Risk of Rain Returns bring new and enhanced Survivors, customizable Survivor abilities, fresh items, monsters, and a brand-new game mode. The game’s difficulty increases the longer you play, so prepare to fight through hordes of enemies that threaten your continued existence, collect and combine items to enhance your abilities, and scale your power to godlike levels.
Many Survivors fled the mysterious attack on your ship. Forge new paths to explore with 15 unique Survivors, each with new abilities to master. Two entirely new Survivors are making their debut in Risk of Rain Returns.
Bring retribution to Petrichor V and forge a path to the Colossus to face an ancient threat!
A Soul, born without purpose, locked away and forgotten. The prison was both her sanctuary and shackle. Her fate: doomed by her flawless design. Millennia passed. Her desperation grew, and from the depths of her solitude, she brought another into the world she lost. Now, The False Son walks Petrichor V, bound by the betrayal of his forebearer and the corruption of a King’s blind ambition.
Only one player is required to own Seekers of the Storm to enable the expansion for the whole lobby. Players without Seekers of the Storm will be unable to select the new survivors or permanently unlock new items, logbooks, or other content.
Prepare for an expedition deep into Petrichor V’s lost regions! Ancient Lemurian temples and crashing waterfalls lead the way across new stages. Explore the caverns and take in the suspicious smell of strawberries in [REDACTED]. Fend off scores of Lemurians within their Reformed Altar. Or drop into the lush green canopy of the Treeborn Colony.
But the true threat towers overhead… Travel the path of the Colossus and ascend its levels in a race to confront The False Son. Defeat him and unlock the true power of his Soul!
