'Risk of Rain 2' (ALL) Comes To Google Stadia Next Week

by Rainier on Sept. 24, 2020 @ 9:00 a.m. PDT

Risk of Rain 2 brings 3D graphics and third-person shooter mechanics to the franchise while maintaining that classic co-op roguelike gameplay fans love from the original.

The classic multiplayer roguelike, Risk of Rain, returns with an extra dimension and more challenging action. No run will ever be the same with randomized stages, enemies, bosses, and items. Play solo, or team up with up to four friends to fight your way through hordes of monsters, unlock new loot, and find a way to escape the planet.

With each run, you'll learn the patterns of your foes, and even the longest odds can be overcome with enough skill. A unique scaling system means both you and your foes limitlessly increase in power over the course of a game--what once was a bossfight will in time become a common enemy.

Myriad survivors, items, enemies, and bosses return to Risk 2, and many new ones are joining the fight. Brand new survivors like the Artificer and MUL-T debut alongside classic survivors such as the Engineer, Huntress, and--of course--the Commando. With over 75 items to unlock and exploit, each run will keep you cleverly strategizing your way out of sticky situations.

Hopoo Games and Gearbox Publishing announced that Risk of Rain 2 is to Stadia for one-click play across compatible laptops, desktops, phones and tablets on September 29, 2020.

Risk of Rain 2 on Stadia introduces Sundered Grove, a new stage releasing first on the platform. The full game and new map will be available for purchase on the Stadia store for $24.99. 

Explore the new Sundered Grove, where ancient flora has risen up to reclaim this once sacred refuge. Mazes of roots and overgrown fungus have twisted the landscape, leaving only ruins. Battle through the lofty canopy to the deep underground. Sundered Grove will accompany Abyssal Depths and Siren’s Call as an alternate fourth stage where survivors will search the entangled area for the legendary chest.

Additionally, pre-orders for the original Risk of Rain 2 soundtrack on vinyl are now open at Black Screen Records, including a limited edition ink-spot pressing. Composed by Chris Christodoulou, the 3xLP ships in October and spans 20 songs over 115 mins, with original artwork on a trifold sleeve and two Bandcamp codes for both Risk of Rain and Risk of Rain 2 soundtracks.
