Previously, only local co-op had been planned and implemented; but due to the large number of requests from fans to add online co-op, the Risk of Rain team has brought in Matthew Griffin – one of the men behind the game Wanderlust: Rebirth – to help add it to the game.

Also included in the most recent update are two new classes:

  • Acrid – a sort of monster/lizard type creature attached to a ball and chain, that uses melee attacks, and can poison enemies.
  • Huntress – a ranged archer equipped with a bow, a glaive, and cluster bomb arrows.

Hopefully you’re as excited for Risk of Rain as I am, and the chance to play this beauty of a game with friends online makes it even more enticing. If you’re interested in pre-purchasing and getting access to the beta, head on over to the Risk of Rain website.
