Risk of Rain 2 is Out Now on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch

Risk of Rain 2 released for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch prior to Gearbox's PAX West showcase.

August 30, 2019

Earlier this month, Nintendo’s Summer 2019 Nindies Presentation kicked off by confirming that Hopoo Games and Gearbox’s Risk of Rain 2 would be coming to Nintendo Switch. They later confirmed it would be coming to PS4 and Xbox One as well. At the time of its announcement, the port still had a Summer 2019 release window and Gearbox Publishing promised to reveal more about the early access game’s console ports on August 30.

While an official announcement regarding Risk of Rain 2’s console release is likely coming soon during Gearbox’s PAX West 2019 Main Theater Show, the game actually popped up early on all of the console’s storefronts, much like Bulletstorm: Duke of Switch Edition did on Switch today. The console version of the game costs a bit more than the PC version at $29.99. This early listing spoiled the surprise launch, but DualShockers will let you know if Gearbox reveals anything new during their presentation.


Risk of Rain 2 is available in early access on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch right now, and is worth keeping an eye on if you enjoy roguelikes or cooperative shooters.
