Surprise! Risk of Rain 2 launches on PS4, Switch and Xbox One

Risk of Rain 2 just appears to be one of those titles that is full of surprises. In March it just suddenly appeared on Steam Early Access, and now without any lead-up, it is available on PS4, Switch and Xbox One.

There was some scepticism about Risk of Rain 2 moving away from 2D to 3D gameplay, but it appears that Hopoo Games has stuck the landing on this one. There might be an extra dimension to the action, but the basic loop of exploring, looting, killing and surviving for as long as possible while rushing to complete levels is still there and still just as fun to play again and again while unlocking new survivors to play as.

The console version includes the Scorched Acres update, which added Survivor Rex, an alternate third stage with a new boss. Rex weakens enemies with enough health drain to keep topped up in large firefights. The health drain comes in handy as Rex uses health for some abilities, so be careful out there.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
