Developer Hopoo Games announced Risk of Rain Returns, a remastered version of the original Risk of Rain game as it’s coming to Switch and PC (via Steam) sometime in 2023.
The original Risk of Rain is an action platformer with rogue-like elements that was released back in 2013. But this remastered isn’t all about improved visuals and other technical enhancements as Hopoo Games is adding a ton of changes to this version of the game.
Various balance updates
Original Survivors with new abilities
New weapons as well as some weapons seen from Risk of Rain 2
New enemies and interactables
New stage variants
New game mode
An overhaul in the game’s multiplayer
This is just the handful of changes mentioned in their latest Dev Thoughts video, which also mentions that Gearbox Publishing will be publishing anything related to the Risk of Rain franchise, including Risk of Rain Returns. ‘
Those who jumped into the sequel might be surprised that the game actually didn’t start out as a 3D game but a 2D platformer.
No exact release date was given.
