Risk of Rain 2 is a 3D roguelite sci-fi third-person shooter developed by Hopoo Games and published by Gearbox Publishing. Hopoo Games is composed of Paul Morse, Duncan Drummond and Jeffrey Hunt. The game released in early access during March of 2019 after it was showcased at PAX East. It is the sequel to the 2013 2D action platformer roguelite, Risk of Rain. Similarly to the first game, the player must fight their way through a sequence of stages where they'll find a variety of randomly placed items to improve their abilities until they become immensely powerful. However, difficulty increases with time and death is permanent. They can choose from a number of playable characters and unlock new items and classes through various achievements. They can learn more about the lore of the game by collecting logs regarding enemies, items or locations. Unlike the first game which was a 2D sidescroller, Risk of Rain 2 is a fully 3D third-person shooter, a rarely seen transition in the last decade. The game received praise for managing to keep the same feel as the first game and taking advantage of the transition to improve it further. This sequel includes both new and returning items and playable characters, new locations and all new mechanics, such as Lunar items, special items with powerful effects and major drawbacks to counterbalance them. At the time of writing, Risk of Rain 2 is still in early access. Information featured on this page may change in the future.

Was trying to overlay a picture of space with a picture of the moon I took and accidentally ended up with this kind of style art. Reminds me of a game called Risk of Rain

Early access review not having to play risk of rain 1, risk of rain 2 is an absolute killing. To make it simple: it is a looter science fiction shooter extremely enjoyable and satisfying from the first moments. One kills enemies in turn of arms without counting, it is played very well in solo and especially in co-op, a minimalist graphic that serves the very principle of the game (i.e. to smash mobs to the shovel without letting go of its left click), a progression and a constant difficulty , endless, almost infinite replayability for character release and a lively, restful, energetic and atmospheric soundtrack. This game at all to be the game (independent) of the year 2019.

Early access review I do not recommend to play this game if you are not patient and very ragy, aside from it, I loved the 1 of one of these forces, as soon as I saw the 2 arrived on steam, I could not help but buy it and worship it as I will once made for the 1, obviously its changed greatly from the first which was in 2 dimensions and that had an end, but! It's an early access! the end will arrive and that's for sure! I'm obviously looking forward to the official release giving us access to all the content of the game, I must confess that I rarely as much tryhard a game since its release, by the way I find it much harder than the first because the WISPs, which in the 1 were BL oked by the platforms because they were not flying have now become to my liking the worst monsters of the game, or in any case its getting closer. Sorry for the cobblestone Caesar, but I had to express my affection for this amazing game created by genius developers.

Early access review Ouftiiiiiii I had completely zapped that Hopoo games concocted a suite of risk of rain that was already a nuggo at the time in the first opus! This very good rogue like goes from 2D to 3D, and I must say that it is rather successful =) immersion, exploration and a well-noted difficulty is at the rendezvous, the design LVL is very neat and the number of loot generous, I recall that in this rogue like one can cumulate er the same relics, so possibility to become completely smoked at a certain level, now it is still necessary to know how to survive because the more time passes in game and the more the cursor of difficulty increases:D Moreover I would add that the multi has clearly been improved compared to the 1 or you had to open ports and hack a few tricks on his IP to be able to play with his friends.. From now on there is the possibility to play online with strangers, or with his buddies via steam! The continuation of the development but it promises to be very heavy this risk of rain 2 < 3
