Gearbox Publishing and Hopoo Games unveil the roadmap for Risk of Rain 2, their upcoming third-person roguelike shooter. This will show the wealth of content coming to Risk of Rain 2’s Early Access period, which will arrive in five major updates. The first comes in June 2019 and ends with the full launch in Spring 2020.
Players can look forward to new bosses, unexplored levels, added localization and of course, powerful items as the game develops. Survivors new and returning have a ton of things to look forward to, as Summer and Winter updates will herald the arrival of “Skills 2.0” and “Artifacts 2.0”. The final boss and level, however, will be saved for the Spring 2020 launch. Early access is available now on Steam, for 19.99.
“It is really important for us to have transparency with our amazing early access community,” said Paul Morse, co-founder of Hopoo Games. “We are sharing this forecast so players know what to look forward to and what the team is working towards in making Risk of Rain 2 the best game of its kind. That’s only possible with the input and feedback we get from our players.”
“Thank you all so much for the amazing support over the first month! We hope that the Roadmap meets our community’s expectations. It’s intended to be an active part of development and we’ll continue to keep our ears open to community feedback across Discord, Twitter and everywhere else.” Says Duncan Drummond, co-founder of Hopoo Games . “We are also really excited to support our international fans, and we hope that the localization efforts are a good start.”
