Risk of Rain 2 has left Steam Early Access and officially launches
Hopoo Games and Gearbox Publishing have announced the official launch of Risk of Rain 2. To celebrate, Steam users can purchase the game at a discounted rate of $15.99 until August 18th. On August 19th the price will be $24.99. The game has already sold more than a million copies within the first month in Steam Early Access.
If you can’t tell from the trailer, the game is a fast-paced, co-op roguelike shooter where players can team up with up to three other friends to trek through more than dozen stages to escape the alien planet. Players can play as 10 unique survivors with unlockable alternate abilities and more than 110 items to discover on runs, and equippable Artifacts to shake up gameplay.
“We’re very excited to see players’ reception to this 1.0 update,” said Paul Morse and Duncan Drummond, co-founders of Hopoo Games. “Since March of 2019, the game doubled in size with new survivors, levels, and items; but more importantly, the passionate community guided us in implementing and finessing gameplay elements and systems that leave this final product feeling holistically improved upon.”
“We can’t thank Hopoo enough for entrusting the team at Gearbox with their masterful new entry to the roguelike genre,” says Steve Gibson, president of Gearbox Publishing. “Every moment working with Hopoo and Risk of Rain 2 has been an absolute joy by helping them bring such an amazing game to millions around the world.” [via Gearbox]
