Risk of Rain 2 Officially Launches on PC Today


Officially coming out of Steam’s Early Access program today, Hopoo Games and Gearbox Publishing’s Risk of Rain 2 is now available for PC.

A fast-paced co-op roguelike shooter, Risk of Rain 2 has players taking control of one of 10 unique Survivors. Once chosen, they must trek through over a dozen stages to escape an alien planet filled with hordes of frenzied monsters. Included are unlockable alternate abilities, over 110 items, and equippable Artifacts that ensure no two playthroughs are the same.

According to Paul Morse and Duncan Drummond, co-founders of Hopoo Games:

“We’re very excited to see players’ reception to this 1.0 update. Since March of 2019, the game doubled in size with new survivors, levels, and items; but more importantly, the passionate community guided us in implementing and finessing gameplay elements and systems that leave this final product feeling holistically improved upon.”

Steve Gibson, president of Gearbox Publishing, added:

“We can’t thank Hopoo enough for entrusting the team at Gearbox with their masterful new entry to the roguelike genre. Every moment working with Hopoo and Risk of Rain 2 has been an absolute joy by helping them bring such an amazing game to millions around the world.”

Steam users can purchase Risk of Rain 2 for $15.99 now until August 18. Note that the title is also available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch up to its Artifacts 2.0 update.
