The super fun roguelike Risk of Rain 2 just had an all-new expansion announced for it today. This expansion is called Survivors of the Void and it's expected to be released in Q1 of 2022. It's already available to be wishlisted on Steam if you're into that sort of thing.

This expansion is going to include a lot of fresh content for fans to enjoy. Some of the new content includes a new final boss and stage, two new survivors, 40 new items, a new game mode, new monsters, new bosses, new stages, new music, and much more. A few more details on all of this can be found in a new developer blog. If you don't like reading, there is also a new developer video, which I have embedded below along with a few additional details on this new content.

This new expansion reveal also comes alongside word that Risk of Rain 2 has sold more than four million copies just through Steam alone. More details on Survivors of the Void will be coming in the months ahead.

The Void is the home dimension of dark creatures. Their power has grown for countless millennia as their hordes of items, weapons, and powerful beings expanded. Cloaked in the aegis of the Void Dimension, their strength is unchecked. As they grow, they are united through the vision of the Harbinger.

The door to their world has opened and the power of The Void has been unleashed. Empower two new survivors with Void Items and bring the fight to the crabs!
