Breaking – Risk of Rain 2: Survivors of the Void – New Survivor Reveal and EGS Coming March 1st, 2022.
The second new survivor joining Risk of Rain 2 in Survivors of the Void, Void Fiend, was announced today by Gearbox Publishing and Hopoo Games during the Survivor #2 Reveal Stream. Additionally, Gearbox and Hopoo revealed that Risk of Rain 2 and Survivors of the Void is coming to Epic Games Store on March 1st, 2022, the same day the DLC launches on Steam.
Void Fiend is the perfect Survivor for players who love a risk-and-reward style. His unique mechanic, Void Corruption, grants a huge power boost and affects Void Fiend’s other skills. Corruption is increased by taking damage and reduced by healing but is always slowly creeping higher and higher. Once your Corruption reaches 100%, Void Fiend transforms into a more aggressive form. This cursed Commando is just one piece of Survivors of the Void, a can’t-miss expansion that pushes the boundaries of Risk of Rain 2’s beloved gameplay cycle further than any previous update, adding the hard-hitting Railgunner Survivor, 40 items, five stages, nine monsters, an alternative endgame boss, an endless horde mode, new music and more.
Void Fiend’s reveal is detailed across a range of new content, including:
- Void Fiend Trailer
- Expansive and informative Dev Thoughts
- Written Dev Thoughts on Steam
Survivors of the Void launches on Steam and Epic Games Store on March 1st, 2022, for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $15 USD, with the console release coming in Q2 of 2022 and Google Stadia coming soon. Risk of Rain 2 is available on Steam, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia.
