Risk of Rain 2 developer details post-launch content

Risk of Rain 2 has recently left Early Access and developer Hopoo Games has gone into detail to reveal what are the plans to expand the game beyond its current status in the future. The sequel to the acclaimed 2D roguelike game has been a risky bet on their part because it's completely different from its predecessor. Risk of Rain 2 offers environments in 3D and cooperative gameplay for up to four players to deliver a thrilling roguelike experience that has has been positively received by the players. The sequel improves the gameplay system in the first game with new features but still offers a randomly generated adventure in which players have to locate a teleporter on every level and then defend themselves from the attack of hordes of aliens until they can escape. The difficulty of the game increases every few minutes making your adventure more challenging the longer you stay in a certain stage.



Regarding the future of Risk of Rain 2, developer Hopoo Games plans to transition into a more "sustainable, creative development" strategy. This will start with an upcoming free content update on all platforms that will be followed by the release of paid expansions that should come once or twice a year. Those expansions would be themed, like a "Void Expansion" or an "Imp Expansion" and the developers want them to add a sizeable portion of new content to the game instead of just a few items or characters. Content that had to be left out of the initial version of Risk of Rain 2 in order to hit release dates may find a way back into it at some point too.



Another thing that developers have in store for Risk of Rain 2 is mod support, something that has been demanded by the players and will be added progressively in upcoming updates. Of course, additions like those, balance changes, and bug fixes will come through free updates.
