Risk of Rain 2

Hopoo Games’ first content update for Risk of Rain 2 is now live with Scorched Acres. It brings a new Survivor – a robot/symbiotic plant thing named REX – and a new boss called The Grovetender. The trailer below also showcases the newest stage, Scorched Acres.

Scorched Acres is interesting due to the raging fires and the strange installation. Players will have some new drones to experiment with, like the Equipment and Incinerator Drone, while also battling a new monster, the Clay Templar. Beware though – high-tier Elites called Malachites can spawn later, and they can disable your healing, among other things.

Another nice new addition are the Category Chests, which seemingly dole out items based on Damage, Healing, and Utility categories. New items and equipment include the Topaz Brooch, Old Guillotine, Warhorn, and many more. That’s not including various changes and buffs that have been provided to existing Survivors. Check out the full patch notes here, with some highlights below.
