Risk of Rain Returns has been announced by Gearbox, and it is expected to release in 2023. Risk of Rain Returns is not a new game but a remake of the first Risk of Rain, which originally released in 2013. The remake has improved visual design, changes to the codebase, and a number of new additions over the original Risk of Rain.
Gearbox has said in its description of Risk of Rain Returns, says, “No two runs in the iconic roguelike are the same, and that has never been truer. Risk of Rain Returns brings 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 monsters that threaten your continued existence, collect and combine items to enhance your abilities, and scale your power to godlike levels.”
Risk of Rain had a change of look when it came to the sequel. Risk of Rain 2 switched from a platforming roguelike to a 3D third person shooter roguelike. Both games have been well received by players, and critics. In Risk of Rain Returns there will be twelve playable characters including the Engineer, Commando, and Miner. There will also be ten very large levels to explore.
