Risk of Rain 2 official artwork and logo for the Hidden Realms update

[Update]: Risk of Rain 2's next major update will be reworking Artifacts and arriving in late March.

When Risk of Rain 2 entered Early Access, the developers quickly released a roadmap promising a variety of new features. While the contents of each step of the roadmap have been reshuffled slightly over time, Hopoo Games have stuck to their word and released some rather exciting updates every couple of months.

The newly launched "Hidden Realms" update is no exception here as it brings with it a poisonous new survivor called Acrid, as well as two new stage variants to offer a bit of diversity. You can also expect to see two hidden realms (Void Fields and the Secret Hidden Realm), three additional skill variants, a brand new monster called the Void Reaver, and most importantly, two new bosses to contend with.

You can get a bit of a sneak peek at what the Hidden Realms update is all about through the recently posted teaser trailer. Have a gander, it's a fairly short but informative one:

If you're interested in all of the gameplay changes and bug fixes, however, you can find out more over at Steam. But if you're more curious about Risk of Rain 2 itself, it's also worth mentioning that its currently 20% off as a part of the Steam Winter Sale.

Have fun with Acrid, he really is a good boy!
