Gearbox Publishing and Hopoo Games have announced that the Risk of Rain 2: Survivors of the Void DLC pack will release in March for PC.
Survivors of the Void is the first big expansion pack for the roguelite shooter, and launches March 1st for Windows PC via Steam. The DLC will release on consoles in Q2 2022. Risk of Rain 2: Survivors of the Void will cost $14.99, with a 35% off launch discount for a brief period of time.
This new DLC pack adds new enemies, new stages, and powerful new Void items. The expansion also adds the Railgunner class. This new survivor is a sniper with a powerful, long-range railgun that can be overcharged to deal massive amounts of damage. Unlike other classes, the Railgunner’s critical hits aren’t based on her stats. Instead, players must manually trigger crits by targeting weak spots on enemies. You can find a trailer below, and learn more about the Railgunner here.
You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:
UNLEASH THE VOID
The Gateway to The Void has opened! The corrupting power it contained has engulfed Petrichor V and plunged the planet into darkness. For millennia, The Void Creatures have grown dominant by taking artifacts from our realm to theirs. Now they look to add you to their collection.
Bring your friends on the adventure! Only one player is required to own Survivors of the Void to enable the monsters, levels, and items to appear in-game for the whole lobby. Players without Survivors of the Void will be unable to select the two new survivors or permanently unlock new items, logbooks, or other content.
SURVIVOR 1: TAKE YOUR SHOT WITH RAILGUNNER
Press your advantage on the high ground. Unleash devastating shots from across the map with Railgunner’s first-person scope. Time your reloads, aim for weak spots, and change the battlefield. Railgunner is the ultimate boss killer. Instead of cutting down hordes, she eliminates her target in one shot.
Mastering Railgunner’s positioning and movement unleash her true potential. Throw down a Concussion Device to reach an overlook, or to get out of a challenging situation. Railgunner is instantly unlocked for owners of Survivors of the Void.

WIELD POWERFUL VOID ITEMS
Corrupt familiar items and unlock new powers! Receiving one of the 13 Void Items permanently alters all normal versions of that item. Corruption brings power, but it also brings changes. You’ll find that many items now do the opposite of what they once did. The Void ukulele’s electrifying music targets single enemies instead of crowds. Some items do something completely different!
Unlock 4 pieces of equipment, 4 lunar items, and 16 standard items in Survivors of the Void.
BEHOLD HORRIFYING MONSTERS…AND GUP
More of Providence’s creatures are loose and they’re not thrilled by this threat to their world. The gelatinous Gup has returned, and he’s brought some new friends from the far reaches of Petrichor V. Beware this adorable orange abomination, tread too close and it’s likely to bounce you off a cliff.
The most powerful creatures come from The Void. Your ability to reach The Void threatens them. That encroachment won’t go unanswered. Constructs of hulking power and corrupted mind have been sent to capture you. Uncover the root of their strength, and if you can, take the fight to them.
NEW STAGES DISCOVERED
Unfamiliar places on Petrichor V have been discovered! Traverse new stages, uncover their secrets, and infiltrate The Void. Explore the beautiful waterfalls of Aphelian Sanctuary, take in the pungent odor of the Sulfur Pools, and enjoy accidental ice skating in Siphoned Forest.
Risk of Rain 2 is available on Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
