Risk of Rain 2 is getting a new expansion called Survivors of the Void this Q1 2022. With the update adding an alternate final boss and stage, new survivors, and more.

New Content Coming in Survivors of the Void: 

  • Alternate Final Boss & Stage 
  • 2 New Survivors 
  • 40 New Items – Including an entirely new item-tier exclusive to the expansion 
  • New Game Mode – The Simulacrum 
    • The Simulacrum is a wave-based arena mode set within a Void simulation. It can be played both single and multiplayer and contains any artifacts you’ve unlocked ready for use. It is an endless mode that only concludes with your simulated demise.  
    • You can see the new mode in action in Dev Thoughts #23.  
  • 9 New Monsters 
  • 2 New Bosses 
  • 2 New Elite Types 
  • 4 New Stages 
  • 3 New Interactables (similar to chests, Scrappers, 3D printers and item containers) 
  • New Music 
  • Additional fixes, changes, and improvements 

“All of the new content we try to design for RoR2 is intended to be multiplicative of what’s in the game currently – that way there is as much variety as possible each time you play the game,” said Paul Morse and Duncan Drummond, co-founders of Hopoo Games. “The new items and survivors, alongside the new Void Item System, will empower players to take content they chase after in a run, and enhance it – or even change it completely. Players will discover a lot of cool new combinations that weren’t possible prior to the DLC.” 

Risk of Rain 2 is now available for PC, Xbox One, PS4, Stadia, and Switch.
