Survivors on Stadia can also untangle the limited-time exclusive stage, Sundered Grove
FRISCO, Texas – September 29, 2020 – Hopoo Games and Gearbox Publishing announced that Risk of Rain 2 is now available on the Stadia store. To celebrate the launch, Risk of Rain 2 will be available for a promotional price of $19.99 during its first week on Stadia, and then $24.99 starting October 7. Smooth as a Milky Chrysalis’s silk and sharp as a Soldier’s Syringe, Hopoo Games’ roguelike shooter can run up to 4K 60fps. With Stadia, players can experience its single-player and signature cooperative play across their favorite devices, including compatible mobile devices, tablets, computers, and TVs. Hopoo Games has also shared additional thoughts on the future of Risk of Rain 2 in the latest Dev Thoughts #18.
Also debuting on Risk of Rain 2 for Stadia is Sundered Grove, a limited-time exclusive stage created in partnership with Ghostpunch. Nature has reclaimed a once sacred refuge as its own, bringing an overgrown labyrinth as an alternative fourth stage for Survivors to untangle. Sundered Grove will be added to other platforms in the future.
Risk of Rain 2 officially launched on Steam last month became a critical hit following its exit from Early Access, earning an 85 on Metacritic and an ‘Overwhelmingly Positive’ on Steam. The title quickly topped three million players. It is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. More information about the upcoming update for console platforms is on the way through the game’s official Twitter.
