What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We've spent a lot of time researching recent EA successes, and as a multiplayer roguelite title, we think RoR2 would be the perfect candidate for Early Access.

However, we want to make sure that we have a plan going into EA - and that we stick to it. Specifically, we are focusing on 3 goals for EA:

  • Building a community - We want to support Risk of Rain 2 for as long as possible. Having a solid community of players that we can actively communicate with will be critical for feedback.

  • Being able to stay on top of development and avoiding content drought. We have experience as developers for supporting Betas, so regular patches is an expectation we understand. We also hope that as a multiplayer roguelite title, the time between content updates feel less painful compared to other EA titles.

  • Gathering feedback from the players and making sure the game continues to shape into the game we want to develop. While we always have a vision for the game, a lot of times players have fantastic ideas that can help propel the game from being good to fantastic. This is also our first ever 3D title, so we really need to collect feedback to make sure it matches everyone's expectations of the game.

We are always open to feedback on our development goals and want to be sure to take the communities feedback into consideration while working on Risk of Rain 2.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning to stay in Early Access for 6-12 months. We want to be able to launch out of early access once the game is in a state we are happy with.”

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

“The full version will have all of the content, 10 characters, over 100 items, etc. The full game will also have a true ending with a final boss to complete runs. The early access version will be infinitely looping. Features that are partially implemented now will be fully fleshed out.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core loop if the game is fully implemented. The multiplayer features are also implemented but will continue to be improved upon during our time in Early Access. There is currently over 60 items and equipment, 5 playable classes and lots of unlocks to keep the game fresh.”

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

“We're still thinking about launch pricing. We want to evaluate based on how much content we add and making sure both Early Access and full game players feel like they're getting their money's worth.”

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.”

About This Game

Risk of Rain 2 is a 3D action multiplayer rogue-lite that brings you back to the mysterious crash site of the Contact Light. No run will ever be the same with randomized stages, monsters, bosses, items, and more. Play solo or team up with friends online to fight your way through hordes of monsters and find a way to escape the planet..



Unlock brand new survivors including the Artificer and MUL-T, or choose to play classic survivors such as the Engineer and Huntress. With over 100 items and equipment at your disposal that change your playstyle, you will always be finding unique synergies every run.



A unique feature of Risk of Rain 2 is that the game never truly stops evolving over time. There are no limits to the number of items your character can collect. However, the same applies to the monsters.. as you grow in strength so do the inhabitants of the planet. Bosses you encounter at the early stages of the game will quickly become a common enemy.



Our main goal with Risk of Rain 2 is to design an extremely difficult but fair game. The player should never feel like they lost because they were unlucky. Player skill and understanding of the game mechanics is the most important key to being successful.
