Risk of Rain Returns

Carefully designed, beautifully remastered, and loaded with new ways to play—Risk of Rain is back and better than ever! This remake of the classic Risk of Rain packs enhanced visuals, an updated codebase, and tons of new content. No two runs in the iconic roguelike are the same, and that has never been truer. Risk of Rain Returns bring new and enhanced Survivors, customizable Survivor abilities, fresh items, monsters, and a brand-new game mode. The game’s difficulty increases the longer you play, so prepare to fight through hordes of enemies that threaten your continued existence, collect and combine items to enhance your abilities, and scale your power to godlike levels. Many Survivors fled the mysterious attack on your ship. Forge new paths to explore with 15 unique Survivors, each with new abilities to master. Two entirely new Survivors are making their debut in Risk of Rain Returns.
