Following its launch out of early access, Hopoo Games talked about eventually transitioning into paid expansions for Risk of Rain 2. It recently revealed its 2021 forecast/roadmap with the Anniversary Update coming in March 2021 and the first paid expansion set for Q4 2021. The former will be free and focus on polishing the overall game.
However, there will be some new content like a new Survivor, new Boss, new Skill Variant for five of the current Survivors, new items and more. Logbook Lore Entries will also be completed and some changes will be made to help modders. The first expansion is where the real meat is, featuring enough content for two to three content updates.
It will feature new Survivors and bosses (yes, more than one), new enemies, new items, new stages and new interactables. You should also expect new random events, a new item tier, new game mode, a new alternate final stage and boss, and new Elite types. And yes, there will be new music as well.
Check out the roadmap in full detail below. Risk of Rain 2 is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Stadia and Nintendo Switch.
