Risk of Rain 2's Survivors of the Void expansion key artwork

[Update]: The original Risk of Rain is getting a remaster with new content, improved multiplayer and smoother gameplay.

A fair bit of time has gone by since Risk of Rain 2 first arrived, so if you're itching for some new content to sink your teeth into, you'll be pleased to hear that the very first expansion has now been unleashed! The aptly named Survivors of the Void brings with it two new survivors to play around with (Void Fiend and Railgunner), an assortment of new corrupted items that function in strange and interesting ways, as well as a bunch of new enemies, bosses and elites to fight.

You can also expect to see new stages to explore, new interactibles to poke as you run around from scores of enemies, an alternate ending, and most importantly of all, a brand new game mode - the Simulacrum. The new mode is essentially a beefed up horde mode where you'll have to face off against waves upon waves of enemies, with each major victory giving you access to some sort of upgrade in order to keep things fresh and interesting.

What all of this looks like in actual gameplay, that you can find out through the freshly posted launch trailer. Have a gander:

Judging by the impressions so far, Survivors of the Void is looking like a highly enjoyable experience, though also quite a challenging one. So if you're planning to dive in yourself, do be prepared for a bit of a difficulty spike as some of the new enemies and elites are far stronger than their predecessors.

You can read a little bit more about this, as well as check out some of the player reviews, over at Steam. Have fun!
