15 survivors to master

Many survivors have fled the mysterious attack on your ship. Slice, dice and serve justice cold with the return of Chef, hold the frontline and protect your team as Enforcer, or lay down a path of toxic sludge as everyone’s favorite purple monster: Acrid!

Play solo or collect your crew

Jump to the surface alone or with your crew! Choose Survivors that complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses, or go wild and choose the one with the biggest weapons (spoiler: it’s Loader). With up to four players online and couch co-op, you’re not alone in this fight.

Risk of rain returns features new and improved multiplayer services to ensure that the only thing that comes between your crew’s survival is the ever-growing hordes on Petrichor V.

Powerful pickups

Fight your way to the surface while uncovering precious cargo. These items serve as your redemption, allowing you to move faster, deal more damage, or jump a little higher. Still others amplify you in more dramatic ways, like the rare Ukulele, which amplifies your attacks with exciting music.

If you’re looking for explosions, hunt down the Brilliant Behemoth and watch even your most mundane attacks erupt in a barrage of beautiful blasts. The magic is in the unpredictable combinations you make. Exploding chain lightning is just the beginning of your frantic masterpiece!

The Dangers of Petrichor V

The inhabitants of Petrichor V are as diverse as the many planets they once called home. When these monsters were driven to extinction on their own worlds, a mysterious force brought them to Petrichor V. The planet quickly grew into a menagerie of the most dangerous monsters in the galaxy, and they’re not happy with intruders (aka YOU) .

Line bending artifacts

Variation is the spice of destruction. Choose from over 10 artifacts that each mutate your run! Maybe you want to start with a random gear item that changes every time it’s used, or maybe you want to experience a rampant Imp invasion every 10 minutes. Play with combinations of artifacts and discover exciting new ways to play.
