Risk of Rain 2

Risk of Rain players on Switch won’t need to wait much longer for the game’s major 1.0 update. The patch is going live on October 20, Gearbox Publishing and Hopoo Games have announced.

Version 1.0 is highlighted by the Captain as a new survivor. There’s also plenty of additional content, including a new stage, enemies, final boss, items, and challenges.

Here’s a full breakdown of what’s new:

New Survivor – Captain

The Captain is a unique survivor that can control the battlefield with utility and damage – with help from the orbiting UES Safe Travels. He wields a shotgun-rifle combo that narrows the spread as it charges and has the ability to stun targets. The Captain can also use his high ranking authority to request probes and beacons from orbit to either provide armor or a healing zone for them and their allies.

The Captain marks the tenth playable character, each with their own unique gameplay style and character challenges. In Risk of Rain 2, brand new survivors like the Artificer and MUL-T debut alongside classic survivors such as the Engineer, Huntress, and-of course-the Commando.

New Stage, Enemies, and Final Boss

A new stage brings your run to its final conclusion: The Moon! Can you survive the new Lunar monsters – and face off against the final boss?

Server Browser

A new server browser replaces Quickplay to help players find the right match with options like dedicated servers, difficulty, rule voting, password protection and more, perfect for playing with the game-changing Artifacts like friendly fire, random survivor spawns, and item selection.

New Items and Challenges

Add a chance to fire magma balls on hit with Molten Perforator, or drain your opponent’s life bars into yours with Super Massive Leech – just two of the latest additions in the game’s arsenal of more than 110 items. New challenges and unlockable skill variants add new strategic potential, while new lore entries flesh out the universe of Risk of Rain 2.
