New content is coming to the space opera roguelike.

Risk of Rain 2 is getting a big breath of fresh air with its next DLC Seekers of the Storm. The new expansion, themed around “devotion,” will add more stages, bosses, and items to the already massive pool. While initially announced in late 2023, the studio has finally shown off content for the new DLC. 

Developer Hopoo Games and publisher Gearbox revealed plans for the DLC on Apr. 10, 2024. The content will center around the triad of Aurelionite, Providence, and Mithrix, and how they interact with the planet’s Lemurian population.

Risk of Rain 2 Seekers of the Storm DLC takes players up a massive statue

The main story of the DLC will take place on a massive statue of Providence, the final boss of the original Risk of Rain.

Players will encounter a new green portal to access the DLC. The exact circumstances are still a secret, but the reveal implies that the climb is intended for players already deep in a run. They will then pop out at the base of the Providence statue and have to fight their way up.

No new finals bosses or endings are confirmed yet, but the Survivors of the Void DLC implies that players will gain another way to end their journey.

In addition to the main story, the new DLC will add plenty of new items, bosses, and stages to Risk of Rain 2. The dev diary appears to show off at least four new stages, one of which is confirmed to be in the regular pool.

The Shattered Abode is a massive wide-open stage full of crumbling architecture. Long-range classes should have a fun time there. Items and bosses are still under wraps but expect a similar amount as Survivors of the Void.

Hopoo Games did not include a release date for the new Risk of Rain 2 DLC, and the official Steam page currently lists it as Coming Soon.

Free Risk of Rain 2 update adds new stage and Artifacts

Lastly, for players who don’t want to drop the extra dosh, Risk of Rain 2 will add a free update with a brand new stage, a crossover survivor skin, and two new Artifacts.

The free Devotion Update will add Verdant Falls to the game, a lush jungle map dotted with waterfalls and secret passages. The Mercenary will gain a new skin called The Prisoner, which is based on the character of the same name from Dead Cells.

The two new Artifacts, Devotion and Delusion, appear to recruit defeated enemies and hide items before pickup respectively. Wait for an official announcement from Hopoo Games to learn more.
