What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“For Early Access, we're focused on three big goals: Building a community - We're building a Discord ( where we can keep in contact with you and foster a constructive community focused on playing and improving the game. We want to tell you about all the latest updates and hear and discuss your feedback. Whether you found a bug, have some design feedback, or came up with your own great idea, we want to hang out and talk about it. We also love the idea of you finding new co-op buddies in Discord!

Consistent, meaningful content - We believe our experience with beta phases of development in the past means we can thoughtfully and consistently support Risk of Rain 2 during Early Access. We know it's a big deal to ask for your money for an unfinished project, so we want to consistently deliver great updates like new characters, items, enemies, bosses, and environments.

A great feedback loop - While we have a vision for the game, players often have fantastic ideas to propel a game from good to great. This is also our first 3D title, so we want to make sure we're meeting (and beating) everyone's expectations of the game. For players that give especially useful feedback, we want to find a way to recognize them.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning to stay in Early Access for around 12 months. We want to make sure the game launches in a state we are happy with and don’t want to rush it.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We look at 1.0 in three parts—first, delivering more content (10 characters, 10 stages, 12 bosses, and over 100 items). Then, delivering a true ending and boss fight to match. Finally, we want to make sure the game is super polished by the time we go 1.0. This includes game features as well as localization beyond just English.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core game loop and multiplayer suite is fully implemented but will continue being polished throughout Early Access. At Early Access launch, Risk of Rain 2 features over 75 items and equipment, 6 playable classes and 6 bosses to keep the game fresh for many, many hours. ”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. We don’t have a firm price for 1.0 yet, but given all the content that we’ll be adding and the added polish the game will receive, you should expect the price to increase at launch. We’ll definitely be talking about it ahead of time!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are planning on involving the community as much as possible as we develop and design Risk of Rain 2. We are particularity interested in:
  • Gameplay Balance
  • Suggestions and ideas
  • Bug finding
  • Supporting Test branches

We also plan to highlight specific users of the community who help us track down bugs or have great ideas.”

Early Access Patch (Build ID #3830295)

Early Access Patch (Build ID #3830295)


Welcome to all the new players who have picked up RoR 2 in the last couple weeks, we are glad to have you join the community!

In this patch we are adding full localization support! We now have official translations for Brazilian Portuguese, Korean, Russian, French, German, Simplified Chinese, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, and Japanese.

These can be enabled by Right-clicking on "Risk of Rain 2" in your Steam Library and going to the language tab at the top. Select from the dropdown what language you want to start the game in and hit close.

There are also bug fixes associated with this patch below:

==== Bug Fixes ====
  • Director no longer stops spawning monsters late in the game
  • Director logic in selecting/skipping monsters to spawn has been cleaned up
  • Reorganize fall damage code to try to fix issues with the server reporting false fall damage hits
  • Fix an issue where every item pickup saved immediately to disk, causing a stutter
  • Picking up new equipment with Gesture of the Drowned no longer fires every frame
  • Fix bosses and monsters sometimes spawning behind closed gates on Wetland Aspect
  • Game now launches with 60 fps cap on by default to help with certain GPUs. This can be turned off in the settings.
  • Fix pings occasionally having weird scaling issues
  • Pinging monsters is now more precise
  • Fix Imp Overlord's void spikes not having their proc coefficient properly assigned. This means that you will bleed and burn for a longer duration from that attack.
  • Losing max shields now properly removes extra shield
  • Fix networking of objective panel display for clients on the Gilded Coast
  • Dramatically improve performance for specific canvases (Character Select, Main Menu, etc)
  • Revise UI texts to support localization efforts
    ○ Fix alignment issue in Game End Panel's class
    ○ Fix wrapping issue in Objective panel for long objectives
    ○ Add lots of missing token strings into files to aid translations
    ○ Fix wrapping issue in title screen buttons
    ○ Fix wrong style for Prismatic Trial buttons
    ○ Fix wrapping issues in settings buttons
    ○ Fix truncation issue in logbook names
    ○ Fix various other wrapping and styling issues prevalent in different languages

As a reminder, we have also been hard at work internally on our Content Update this June - we hope to share news with you soon!

Thank you!

First off, we are very excited to announce that Risk of Rain 2 passed over 1 million sales on Steam alone in a month since our Early Access launch! To give you guys a little bit of context, it took us almost 5 years to hit that same number on Steam for Risk of Rain 1. We are excited to see how many of you are jumping into RoR 2. Thank you all so much - we feel very lucky.

Last week we released our Content Roadmap, and the initial response has been overwhelmingly positive. As we get closer to the first content update we want to give more details on what's included beyond just the major features listed on the roadmap.

Internally, we have continued to work on the new content update since launch and are really happy with the way things are turning out. This update is particularly exciting for us because ALL of the content included in our first update will be new content to the Risk of Rain universe. Expect a brand-new survivor, map, and more. If you’re a RoR1 fan and you miss some RoR1 survivors - don’t give up yet. Future content updates will weave in some returning content from Risk 1; we hear your wishes!

We hope our first content update plants the seeds necessary to continue growing Risk of Rain 2 into an even better game for players.. This patch will also include quality of life updates and bug fixes! Again, as we get closer to launching this content update we will be sharing more details and even some teasers of what's to come.

As a reminder, we will still be shipping patches containing bug fixes, alongside full localization, before the first Content Update. You can read about that and more in our roadmap announcement post from last week.

We are hard at work on Content Update 1 and are so excited to share more details with you soon. Again, thank you all so much for the amazing support and helping us build this amazing community around Risk of Rain 2.

Early Access Forecast

About This Game

Co-op roguelike action
The classic multiplayer roguelike, Risk of Rain, returns with an extra dimension and more challenging action. No run will ever be the same with randomized stages, enemies, bosses, and items. Play solo, or team up with up to four friends to fight your way through hordes of monsters, unlock new loot, and find a way to escape the planet.

Constant battles and incredible bosses
With each run, you'll learn the patterns of your foes, and even the longest odds can be overcome with enough skill. A unique scaling system means both you and your foes limitlessly increase in power over the course of a game--what once was a bossfight will in time become a common enemy.

Old favorites return and undiscovered challenges await
Myriad survivors, items, enemies, and bosses return to Risk 2, and many new ones are joining the fight. Brand new survivors like the Artificer and MUL-T debut alongside classic survivors such as the Engineer, Huntress, and--of course--the Commando. With over 75 items to unlock and exploit, each run will keep you cleverly strategizing your way out of sticky situations.

Key Features

  • Play four player co-op seamlessly through Steam — no more port forwarding
  • Unlock over 75 items over time, keeping each run fresh and full of new challenges

  • Encounter challenging monsters and enormous bosses
