Hopoo Games’ Risk of Rain 2 has been out for a month on Steam Early Access, but is already a phenomenal game. It’s seen a few small updates since release, but in June, the development team will start building upon the game. A recent development thoughts post outlined what can be expected.
A new Survivor, stage, and boss will be coming in June, along with some new items, equipment, etc. “Summer” will see the addition of Skills 2.0 along with another new Survivor, stage, and boss. You can also expect some more new items and equipment at that time. Fall will bring something slightly different, with new bosses (yes, plural), new “Hidden Realms”, and a new Survivor (along with more items).
Artifacts 2.0 will arrive in Winter along with a new stage, bosses, items, and equipment. The game is targeting a full release in Spring 2020, which is when we’ll get a new Survivor, the final stage, and boss, and new items and equipment. All in all, players can expect four new Survivors, four new stages, multiple new bosses, and new systems in the next year. Check out the full post for other things that the team is working on, including issues like players not being able to ready up during multiplayer and private games.
