Risk of Rain 2 roadmap adds tons of new content through 2019

Hopoo plots four big seasonal updates for 2019, and another huge patch when Risk of Rain 2 launches in Spring 2020

Today Hopoo revealed Risk of Rain 2's early access content roadmap, and it's quite beefy.


Risk of Rain 2 is one of the most chaotically fun indies I've ever played, and is already in my top games of 2019. Right now it feels like a complete game with its randomized RNG layout, massively replayable roguelite survival mechanics, and constantly-shifting multiplayer team dynamics, but it's just an early access game...and there's lots more on the horizon.

Now Hopoo unveils what kinds of content early buyers will get to chew on in the coming months. Risk of Rain 2 will get four big seasonal updates that bring everything from new items, equipment, strategic characters, titanic world-breaking bosses, and new class-based skills. Three new classes will be added across the first three seasons, followed by a big artifact-focused patch in the Winter. Then in Spring 2020 the game will ship in a final state, bringing yet another fusillade of goodies--and another class.

The three-person team has outlined quite a future for Risk of Rain 2 and I for one and blown away they've not only managed to make the game this good this fast, but also how they're laying out some big content drops for the project.

Here's what the devs had to say about the new roadmap:

"It is really important for us to have transparency with our amazing early access community," said Paul Morse, co-founder of Hopoo Games.

"We are sharing this forecast so players know what to look forward to and what the team is working towards in making Risk of Rain 2 the best game of its kind. That's only possible with the input and feedback we get from our players."

"Thank you all so much for the amazing support over the first month! We hope that the Roadmap meets our community's expectations. It's intended to be an active part of development and we'll continue to keep our ears open to community feedback across Discord, Twitter and everywhere else." Says Duncan Drummond, co-founder of Hopoo Games .

"We are also really excited to support our international fans, and we hope that the localization efforts are a good start."
