It’s only been a month since indie sequel Risk of Rain 2 was released via Steam Early Access. Hopoo Games have already revealed their road map for future updates and development. The road map details five major updates leading up to Risk of Rain 2’s full release one year from now, Spring 2020.

“It is really important for us to have transparency with our amazing early access community,” said Paul Morse, co-founder, 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.”

The updates will arrive seasonally every few months, and add new character classes, stages, bosses, and items. Two new overhauls are also teased in this road map, Skills 2.0 this Summer and Artifacts 2.0 in the Winter. It’s unclear what these big changes will bring.

The 1.0 release that arrives next Spring will add the final boss and stage. The next update won’t happen until June, where we’ll see one new survivor, stage, and boss and some new items.

Risk of Rain 2 is the Gearbox published sequel to roguelike action game Risk of Rain. We were impressed by how well the series makes the transition from 2D to 3D, and looking forward to new content coming throughout the next 12 months.

Risk of Rain 2 is available now on PC (Steam Early Access).
