Hopoo Games has surprised everyone this week by launching their upcoming co-op roguelike shooter sequel, Risk of Rain 2, on Steam’s Early Access.
I’m not kidding, you can head on over to Steam right now and grab Risk of Rain 2. What’s more, if you purchase it now, you’ll get a second copy to share with a friend. Pretty neat, right?
For those who don’t know, Risk of Rain 2 is a follow-on from the 2013 original, but with a vast difference. It seems the developers have ditched the side-on platforming aspect of the original and have opted for a more vibrant fully-3D world in which players can play together.
Solo play is also there too, however, it’s likely to be a lot more fun for up to four players as they progress their way through a series of randomized stages filled with items, enemies, and bosses.
Currently, the Early Access version of Risk of Rain 2 features 75 items, six playable classes, and six bosses to battle. By the time the game hits release, the game will include ten classes, ten stages, 12 bosses, and over 100 items.
Risk of Rain 2 is currently available for £14.99 though this will change once early access ends. Players who purchase from now until March 30th at 7PM UK will receive a second copy of the game.
