The recently-released sequel to Risk of Rain came out abruptly last month around PAX East, surprising both fans of the first game and curious newcomers alike. Thanks to a surprising early promotion that gave purchasers a free copy to give to friends, Risk of Rain 2 became surprisingly popular. Now the developers at Hopoo Games are detailing how they plan to proceed with the rest of the game’s early access period.
In a post on the game’s Steam forums, the developers provided this helpful infographic:
As you can see, they plan for new content for each of their seasonal milestones leading up to the game’s release in Spring 2020. The content seems to mostly focus on things like survivors, stages, bosses, and items, which are all kind of the bread and butter of this game, so it makes sense to keep those at the top of the priority list.
While the game’s ratings on Steam are in the “Overwhelmingly Positive” category, the few negatives that are mentioned are usually focused on a lack of content. Of course, the game did just launch in early access, but this sounds like it is laser-targeted at those complaints. In the blog post, the developers even ask fans for feedback on the roadmap should they want the resources applied elsewhere.
Risk of Rain 2 is currently in early access on PC.
