Survivors of the Void promises to bring 40 new items to the table to give some real build variety, along with five new stages, new enemies, and an alternate end boss that will surely be more interesting than fighting Mithrix. Because nobody — nobody — likes Mithrix or the base game’s final stage.

Along with all of the above are the new Railgunner survivor, who will bring a kit akin to the Sniper from the first Risk of Rain, and the newly announced Void Fiend. Both will offer high risk and dynamic gameplay, for the chance to dole out some serious damage and feel like a total badass in the process.

The Railgunner being unable to fire for a short time after using her biggest damage-dealing shot and the Void Fiend being able to swap forms once overflowing with corruption both sound and look like interesting mechanics to add some extra spice to an already brutal game.

Along with the Void Field reveal is the announcement that Risk of Rain 2: Survivors of the Void will be releasing on the Epic Game Store at the same time as it releases on Steam.

There’s so much to look forward to in Survivors of the Void that even someone like me with over 400 hours in the base game is absolutely vibrating in excitement! What are you looking forward to most in the Risk of Rain 2 expansion? Let us know in the comments below, and look for Risk of Rain 2: Survivors of the Void on March 1 on PC and in the second quarter of the year on console platforms.
