On top of the new content, developer Hopoo Games launched a poll today on the Risk of Rain 2 Discord to let the community chose the new Survivor that will be playable in the game when it launches in 1.0 this Spring. The winner will be announced on April 8.

In terms of the update, Artifact 2.0 is bringing a lot to the table. A whole new stage was added alongside new enemies, items, challenges, skills, and more. The artifacts themselves are a big return addition; artifacts are sixteen unique items that can be equipped to add variety or mayhem to Risk of Rain 2.

For full notes on all addition, read up on Hopoo’s Development Thoughts. Check out the new update’s trailer here as well.

To coincide with the new content, Risk of Rain 2 will be on sale through Steam starting today through April 6, and will have a free trial weekend from April 2 to April 6.

As the game is still in early access, Risk of Rain 2 1.0 is expected to launch this year. It was previously expected to launch this month.
