Risk of Rain Returns artwork for the 10th anniversary remaster of the indie roguelike

In celebration of Risk of Rain's tenth anniversary, Hopoo Games have now unleashed Risk of Rain Returns. This comprehensive remaster brings with it greatly improved visuals, three new Survivors, dozens of new stage variants, a brand new challenge mode, as well as a whole bunch of new items and enemies to mess around with.

Besides all of the new content, Risk of Rain Returns has also freshened up a bunch of the old stuff. You can look forward to a revamped multiplayer mode, alternate abilities for all of the original Survivors, extra lore to uncover, and perhaps most importantly of all, a large array of quality of life changes to make everything just a bit smoother.

What all of this looks like in action, as well as what Risk of Rain Returns is even about, that you can check out through the launch trailer below. Have a gander:

I haven't had a chance to play the remaster just yet, but the original Risk of Rain was a ton of fun, and Risk of Rain Returns looks like a newer and better version of it. So if you're in a roguelike mood and don't mind the somewhat steep difficulty curve, I'd definitely recommend checking Risk of Rain Returns out, especially since it's fairly cheap at the moment.

Speaking of checking out, you can learn more about Risk of Rain Returns, as well as read some of the player reviews, over at Steam. Enjoy!
