Risk of Rain 2

11th August

Risk of Rain 2 on Steam

Risk of Rain 2 was one of our Top 10 Overlooked Games of 2019 back in December when it was still in early access. Now finally, the polished full version release is nearly upon us– and it looks well worth the wait.

Risk of Rain 2 is a “roguelike” multiplayer game. This means that bosses, loot, enemies, and levels, are randomized every time you play! Go at it solo, or team up with up to 4 friends to try and find a way to escape from the dangerous new planet you’ve found yourself on. With each new run, you’ll improve your skills as you learn the patterns of the various bosses and enemies. A massive, uniquely crafted and randomized world awaits.
