Risk Of Rain 2 review

I was ready to give up on Risk Of Rain 2. On the face of it that doesn't make much sense, because it's a 3D followup to an excellent platforming roguelike where possibility spills from cascading item combos. It's like if The Binding Of Isaac was a third-person shooter set on an alien planet where dinosaurs, ghosts and automatons team up to kill you. I…

Risk Of Rain 2 leaves early access, under The Captain’s orders

Storm's finally here, folks. Over a year since it hit Steam Early Access, Risk Of Rain 2 is popping on its wellies to brave the rocky seas of a full release. Fortunately, The Captain's on deck as a new playable survivor, steering the frenetic third-person shooter through an ocean of new items, enemies and custom servers to reach its ultimate conclusion - a massive alien…

Risk Of Rain 2 lands with a new survivor, stage and price-tag next month

Expect a new survivor, a new stage, a flashy new server browser and, unfortunately, a little bit of a price hike when it arrives on August…

Risk Of Rain 2 delays its 1.0 release into August

Pack your brolly away, it's clear skies for a few months yet. Risk Of Rain 2 developers Hopoo game released a revised forecast for their swarming early access roguelite this week, pushing the game's 1.0 release back to August this year. After all that time in early access, the devs reckon they'd picked up a little tunnel vision, and are re-thinking their release plans to…

Risk Of Rain 2 adds a playable lizard-dog

I want to like Risk Of Rain 2 . The 3D sequel to Chancy Precipitation 1 has snazzy music and a weird, varied menagerie of monsters to shoot at. A few more joined the fray in yesterday's Hidden Realms update, along with a playable lizard-dog, dedicated servers, nine new items, and more varied level layouts. It's a meaty and welcome update, though I just played…

Risk Of Rain 2 rolls out loudouts, plus a new survivor with a grappling hook

Rain, rain, go away, come again once you've got a new assortment of tools I can murder monsters with. Oh, hello Risk Of Rain 2. What've you got there? The Skills 2.0 update, introducing a loadout system that lets you configure each character's skills at the start of each run, a new survivor with a grappling hook, plus new monsters, bosses and items? None of…

Risk Of Rain 2 spruces up for summer with an autumnal update

Maddeningly compelling co-op looty shooter Risk Of Rain 2 has just rolled out its first major expand-o-patch since it entered early access. Per Hopoo's earlier road-map, The Scorched Acres update adds the gorgeously golden-red hued Scorched Acres map, which are less on fire than the name suggests, a new boss called the Grovetender (who presumably keeps those trees looking lovely) and a new character to…

Feature: Create a winning build, one item at a time

Risk of Rain 2 items & equipment guide – item stacking, Lunar items & Legendary items explained

The Risk of Rain 2 items list was where we all kinda figured Hopoo Games weren't going to disappoint, considering the stellar array of items that had been added to the first Risk of Rain. Just take a look at that image above. All those different colours, shapes, and functions, each awakening a different strain of morbid curiosity in the player. What about that creepy…

Risk Of Rain 2 forecasts five big updates and a spring launch

While there's some debate on whether Risk Of Rain 2 is an improvement over its two-dimensional predecessor, the co-op roguelike shooter is an undeniably popular game, even in early access. Today, developers Hopoo revealed their update plans, leading up to the release of version 1.0. Five big patches, one in June and four more spread over the rest of the year, leading up to a…

Feature: To the Abyssal Depths and beyond

Risk of Rain 2 levels/stages – Environment types, Newt Altar locations, secret areas

Call them what you want - Environments, stages, levels - but it'd be doing a disservice to all these stages of Risk of Rain 2 to say they're simply the backdrop to your journey of survival and inevitable demise. Each of these Environments plays an important role in shaping your run, but to use them to your advantage you'll need to learn everything about them;…

Risk of Rain 2 challenges list – how to complete all achievements, unlock all characters & items

Risk of Rain 2 continues the trend of modern roguelites by locking a significant portion of its content behind numerous challenges which must be completed during your runs. Everything from powerful items and equipment to new characters with unique skills and playstyles must be unlocked by completing a specific challenge or achievement, and some of them are far from easy to obtain. But our Risk…

Risk Of Rain 2 brings magma worm down to earth with a fiery update

Risk Of Rain 2 is the second roguelikelike shooter that falsely declares itself to be about weather when it’s really about firing innumerable bullets at hellish demons. This one is in 3D, and some players have been frowning and muttering about various shortcomings, like bosses being “too grindy”. An update yesterday hopes to turn those frowns rightside-around, making one fiery baddie in particular a little…

Risk Of Rain 2 is much less than the sum of its parts

It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is about to drive his insectoid claws into your neck stump. When a sudden shower belted out the early access launch of Risk Of Rain 2, my first impulse was to go dancing in the storm.Like its 2D predecessor, Risk Of Rain 2 is a sci-fi roguelike defined by ever-escalating difficulty, and an ever-growing pile of items that…

Risk Of Rain 2 explodes into early access with a two-for-one deal

The original Risk Of Rain was a game about big numbers - a platform roguelike with a thing for screen-filling, damage-number-generating projectile spam. Three-dimensional sequel Risk Of Rain 2 has just launched into early access, and is already doubling down on the multipliers, as players who pick it up by midnight PST on March 30th will get a second copy to share with a friend.…

Watch 10 mins of Risk Of Rain 2, oddly set in a desert

When I look at how long all of my friends have spent playing co-op platform shooter Risk Of Rain, a roguelike about biffing alien bads, I see a list divided. Maybe half have put in a few hours. Maybe they, like me, enjoyed the bullet-hell combat and setting down a seemingly endless path of item and character unlocks - but found that path guarded by…
