Risk of Rain 2 is on Steam Early Access today, buy one get one free


You know, for friendship

At PAX East today, Gearbox revealed it is working with Hopoo Games on Risk of Rain 2. Risk of Rain was a 2D roguelike loot-based platform shooter with a kickin’ soundtrack. Risk of Rain 2 changes up that formula a bit, bringing it to a 3D third-person perspective but keeping some of the same core concepts intact, and it’s looking pretty good so far.

In its partnership with Gearbox, Hopoo has released Risk of Rain 2 on Steam Early Access today. As a little promotional bit, if you buy a copy before March 30, you’ll get a free copy to gift to a friend. It is a cooperative-focused game, after all. Play with a buddy!
