A release date for Risk of Rain: Survivors of the Void expansion has been revealed. This new expansion will be out on March 1, 2022. With its release will come the first of two new survivors being added to the game, plus new monsters, new bosses, a new game mode, new stages, new music, and more. We talked a bit more about that in the Survivors of the Void announcement back in November.

Today's release date announcement came alongside a bunch of new media and information from the development team at Hopoo Games. There was a full reveal stream, which you can watch the VOD of right here.

In addition, there is a dedicated trailer for the new survivor, Railgunner, which can be found below. Also found below is an "expansive and informative" developer trailer talking about the expansion and showing off some additional Railgunner gameplay. If you would rather read the developer's thoughts on this expansion, you can do so over on Steam.

We have also included details on the Railgunner's skills below the two included videos.

Railgunner Skill Details:
  • Her primary weapon, the M99 Sniper, puts players in her perspective to look down the scope and target enemy Weak Points. By hitting these Weak Points, this long-ranged powerhouse deals a devastating 1,000% damage with a guaranteed Critical Strike.
    • Railgunner’s attacks cannot randomly crit like other Survivors, but all Critical Strike Chance gained with items is converted into additional Critical Strike Damage.
    • Firing with the M99 Sniper triggers Railgunner’s Active Reload bar. By perfectly timing a reload, players can increase the pace of their shots and deal an extra +500% base damage on the next shot.
  • When enemies get up close, Railgunner’s XQR Smart Round System fires off rapid smart rounds that keep nearby enemies at bay and deal 100% damage.
  • Railgunner’s Concussion Devices create a gravity-propelled blast zone that pushes away anything within range. Players can use Concussion Devices to launch Railgunner rapidly away from enemies, creating enough space between her and her foes to line up the killing shot, or to spread out groups of monsters, separating them for targeted snipes.
  • Railgunner’s special ability, Supercharge, overloads her railgun, shelling out 4,000% damage and 150% Weak Point damage. While Supercharge’s explosive blast can wipe out tougher enemies with the right items, that power comes at a cost: after firing, Railgunner’s weapons must recharge, leaving her unable to attack for five seconds and forcing players to rely on Railgunner’s Concussion Devices alone to keep away from harm.
  • Escape Petrichor V with Railgunner to unlock alternative abilities and an alternative skin.
