The first expansion for Risk of Rain 2 is now available on Steam. Survivors of the Void introduces new content, including five new stages, two Survivors, and an alternative endgame boss. There’s also an endless mode where players can fight against monsters that progressively become tougher.

The new expansion is currently being offered at $9.75 until March 9. After that, the price goes to $15. For those of you who don’t have the game, not to worry since Risk of Rain 2 is available at 50% off.

Features of this new expansion include:

  • Two Survivors bring with them unique mechanics and playstyles:
    • Powerhouse sniper Railgunner.
    • Corrupt combatant Void Fiend.
  • Five new stages for players to explore and enjoy:
    • Aphelian Sanctuary
    • Sulfur Pools
    • Siphoned Forest
    • Void stage
    • An endgame stage that offers new terrain to traverse and secrets to discover.
  • The Simulacrum
    • A wave-based horde mode set within the Void simulation.
      • Only ends once players have been defeated.
    • Team up in multiplayer and take on enemies of progressively increasing difficulty levels.
      • As long as one person in the party survives by the end of the wave, the whole group revives to face the next challenge.
  • 40 new items add more variety to Risk of Rain 2 ’s nearly limitless combinations:
    • Eighteen items are “normal,” with fourteen of these items also having a corrupted Void version.
    • Void Items corrupt all items in the same item class and change up their effects in the game.
  • Three new interactables which offer a dynamic experience that affects the items a player can use and encounter.
  • Nine new monsters, two new bosses, and two new Elite types.
  • An alternative endgame boss that completes the Risk of Rain 2 experience by expanding on the story and lore.
  • New music from Risk of Rain 2 ’s composer Chris Christodoulou.

In a statement, Hopoo Games co-founder Duncan Drummond revealed that one of the key design pillars of the game was to make sure that no two runs are the same. He went on to say that this has never been truer with the new expansion. Drummond added that they’re excited to see players get their hands on the expansion.

Meanwhile, co-founder Paul Morse shared that it was almost a decade ago when he and Duncan started to make the original Risk of Rain. He said that they never expected to have a passionate community or to be able to reach millions of players worldwide.

Risk of Rain 2 is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia.
