Risk of Rain 2 Drops Out of Early Access Today With New Content

Risk of Rain 2 is finally out of early access on PC. Console fans shouldn't have to wait much longer for it drop on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.

August 11, 2020

After a little over a year in early access, Risk of Rain 2 is finally ready for prime time. The action roguelike is available now on PC via Steam. Players on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One will have to wait a little longer. That said, fans should get excited, as the launch brings with it tons of new stuff and key improvements. Give the launch trailer a watch below.

After a heated community vote, the Captain is the latest Survivor coming to Risk of Rain 2. Coming along with him is a host of new and updated items, features, and baddies. Notably, the fifth major update finally gives the game a proper ending. Complete with a cutscene, credits, and all the other bells and whistles you’d expect. Risk of Rain is a real, complete video game, y’all.


Of course, it’s not just new, shiny stuff to look at. The team at Hoppo Games have diligently been working to smooth out the entire gameplay experience. That means a renewed focus on both player agency and build diversity. The latter is incredibly important for a game like this one. Ensuring that players can change their playstyle, but stay viable is something you have to have for a game with as many potential builds as RoR2.

Risk of Rain 2 is available now on PC. As mentioned, the full launch will come on consoles at a  later date. Going off of past updates, that means players should expect launch in two or three months. It’s a bit of a wait, but it should be worth it for a tight experience that does the game justice.
