Posted on June 22, 2020 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch
Risk of Rain 2 players on Switch won’t have to wait much longer for the game’s major Artifacts Update. Announced earlier today, it’ll go live tomorrow, June 23.
Here’s a rundown of the features from the new update:
Artifacts: Artifacts make their Risk of Rain 2 debut. These treasures can be unlocked by completing in-game challenges and then equipped at the start of a run to dramatically modify aspects of the game, adding variety and challenge. Some are new, some are returning, and range from “oh fun” to “who hurt you?”
New Stage, Monsters and Hidden Boss: Sky Meadow returns as a 5th stage, players will encounter new familiar monsters, and a new hidden boss awaits those clever enough to find them.
Skill Variants: Commando, Huntress, Engineer and Acrid receive more unlockable skill variants to shock and awe in new ways.
New Loot: New equipment, items, and a Lunar Item of dubious purpose enter the world for Survivors to discover.
Engineer Skin: Engineer enthusiasts can earn a skin for their Survivor by completing an in-game challenge.
