The survivor roster in Risk of Rain 2 is about to get a little bigger with the upcoming Survivors of the Void expansion. New items, maps, and gameplay elements are coming along with the new Railgunner survivor.
Reminiscent of the Sniper from the original Risk of Rain, the Railgunner boasts an M99 Sniper that switches the player’s perspective to first-person for ridiculously powerful shots to targets.
To stay safe, the Railgunner brings two abilities to the table to move herself to safety or to keep enemies at bay; though the real tastiness of her kit lies in Supercharge, which overloads her railgun and boosts her damage to insane heights — at the cost of being unable to fire her M99 for five seconds.
Survivors of the Void will be bringing a lot more with it than the new Railgunner survivor. A whole list of new enemies, including deadly void enemies, at least one new map, new items, and new features will come with the expansion.
We won’t have to wait long to play the next evolution in Hopoo’s Risk of Rain 2, at least on PC. Survivors of the Void is scheduled to release on March 1 on Steam, giving us a mere month to hone our skills to prep for the new challenges coming in the expansion.
Those who play on console will have to be patient to get their hands on Survivors of the Void, though, as the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia ports of the game will be receiving the expansion sometime in the second quarter of the year.
