Risk of Rain 2 "Artifacts 2.0" update launches June 23rd, 2020

Risky business tomorrow

Last we heard about the Artifacts 2.0 update heading to Risk of Rain 2 was that it would launch sometime in June 2020. Turns out the dev team stayed true to their word, as we now know the update hits tomorrow, June 23rd, 2020. You can check out a recap of the update below.

Artifacts: Artifacts make their Risk of Rain 2 debut. These treasures can be unlocked by completing in-game challenges and then equipped at the start of a run to dramatically modify aspects of the game, adding variety and challenge. Some are new, some are returning, and range from “oh fun” to “who hurt you?”

New Stage, Monsters and Hidden Boss: Sky Meadow returns as a 5th stage, players will encounter new familiar monsters, and a new hidden boss awaits those clever enough to find them.

Skill Variants: Commando, Huntress, Engineer and Acrid receive more unlockable skill variants to shock and awe in new ways.
New Loot: New equipment, items, and a Lunar Item of dubious purpose enter the world for Survivors to discover.

Engineer Skin: Engineer enthusiasts can earn a skin for their Survivor by completing an in-game challenge.

Risk of Rain 2 "Artifacts 2.0" update still on track for June 2020 release

No risk of delay

With the world still feeling the affects of the pandemic, developers and publishers have been announcing delays for their projects. Not everyone has been forced to push their projects back, though. The gang behind Risk of Rain 2 have been moving right along on their updates, and their schedule hasn't been impacted.

The team took to Steam to give an update on all things Risk of Rain 2, and that included the "Artifacts 2.0" update on Switch. That update is still lined up for a June 2020 release, although we don't have a specific date. We went over what the upcoming Artifacts 2.0 update has to offer in a previous post, which you can find here.

Risk of Rain 2 Version 1.0.6 hotfix released

Risky business

Risk of Rain 2 has gotten a hotfix, which means you shouldn't have to actually update anything manually. The hotfix is for Version 1.0.6, and includes the following tweaks.

- Fixed the issue where Challenges were not displaying for some users following the Hidden Realms Update
- Fixed the issue where some users were unable to unlock survivor, Acrid.

Risk of Rain 2 aware of issues with the "Hidden Realms" update on Switch, working on a fix

Hidden bugs

Risk of Rain 2 got a "Hidden Realms" update on Switch this week, and unfortunately it seems there's some progression issues in the content. Players are finding that the log book doesn't show any content for the challenges, and they can't unlock Acrid even after completing the trials.

The official Risk of Rain 2 Twitter account has said that they're aware of the issues, and they're working on a fix right now. No word on how long the tweak will take, but we'll keep an eye on the situation for further updates.

Even more to look forward to

Earlier today, we shared news of the Hidden Realms update for Risk of Rain 2 going live on Switch. We also learned all about the Artifacts 2.0 update that will come to Switch at some point down the road. Turns out there's even more content after that to look forward to.

Sometime in Summer 2020, Risk of Rain 2 will get another update after the Artifacts 2.0 content. This update will include a new survivor, stage, boss, items, equipment, and more. We'll have to hang tight for more specifics on this update, which most likely won't come around until the Artifacts 2.0 update launches.
