Risk of Rain 2 console players get the 1.0 update today, meaning the game is fully out on all platforms. You should probably try it out.
Risk of Rain 2 finally dropped out of early access with its 1.0 update on PC back in August. It was immediately met by high praise by players and critics alike. However, console players were still left waiting. That all changes today. The developers at Hopoo Games announced that the 1.0 update comes to Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One today. Give the announcement a watch below.
The 1.0 Update has arrived on consoles! The fifth content update for Risk of Rain 2 is available now to download for everyone on the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch!

As PC players know, the 1.0 update for Risk of Rain 2 adds a ton of new content to the game. Most notably, the game finally has a real ending with credits, a cutscene, and everything. That’s far from the only addition though. You’ll encounter a new stage, enemies, items, and, of course, a brand new boss. Plus, there’s another survivor for you to test out called the Captain. And, as you’d expect, there are tons of updates, tweaks, and changes for stuff already in the game. It’s quite the package.
Risk of Rain 2 joins the crowded list of great roguelikes to come out in 2020. From Hades to Spelunky 2, fans of the genre have never had more excellent choices to get their fix. RioR2 brings a deep multiplayer mode that makes it perfect for players looking for something to hop into with a group of friends.
Risk of Rain 2 is available now on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. I know your game calendar is already full of exceptional roguelikes, but consider giving RoR2 a shot. It’s certainly something a bit different, and, if you can get a few friends to play, quite the multiplayer experience.
