Description

Risk of Rain 2 for PC is a third-person shooter game (also styled an ‘action-platformer’) that falls into the roguelike classification. ‘Roguelike’ refers to a category of role-playing video games in which permadeath (or the permanent death of a playing character) is a feature, but the term has, of late, expanded to include many others: often needing to be a turn-based game, procedurally generated levels, tile-based graphics and a high-fantasy world setting.

About the Game


One to four players fight to advance from level to level, combatting waves of aliens and bosses. The premise is that the players must locate and then guard a teleport until it becomes active. The more kills that are made, the more experience and in-game currency you earn, the latter being used to purchase upgrades and boosts. Some of the upgrades are ‘stackable’ meaning that their benefits are exponentially increased when more than one is used at any one time.

The strength, difficulty and numbers of the attacking aliens increases every five minutes, making each level harder and harder as time goes on. This means it behoves the player to work through the levels as quickly as possible, so as to move on to the next level with its attendant benefits and powers – and the reduced numbers and strengths of attackers that marks the first few minutes on a new level!

However, along with the increase in enemy activity, your character gets stronger too, so that what was a boss fight a few moments ago becomes a regular battle. This maintains a high level of excitement and encourages focussed concentration on the action, making for a compelling and enthralling challenge.

Randomised Fully 3D World


The world is set in fully 3D rendered locations, which adds dynamism to the gameplay, and because of the randomising engine, each time you play will take you along a slightly different path as the game responds to your choices and actions each time you play through a level, even if you are going over previously completed levels.

Ways to Play



  • Focus

  • Pay attention to the patterns of enemy waves – they do adhere to very similar patterns of arrival each time. This means that with skill and care, even the toughest level can be mastered in time. It is possible to win the game more on statistics and observation than by blunt-force skill, so you can set yourself a challenge of using more finesse and accuracy rather than non-stop shoot-em-up action.

  • Solo

  • Play by yourself, running on sheer grit to keep enemy numbers down, using all your weapons and upgrades to stay ahead of the curve. This is where your love of noise and violence can be indulged, spraying enemies with missiles and cutting down wave after wave of aliens, monsters and bosses.

  • Multiplayer

  • Team up with up to three other players to work as a team to divide and conquer the streams of enemies. This is a more efficient way of playing as one player can devote their attention to one quarter of the invaders, with all four players working in concert to cover each other against attack from all sides. Solo players sometimes run the risk of being ambushed when streams of invaders suddenly arrive from an unexpected direction.

    Risk of Rain 2 for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    Risk of Rain 2, paired with the Survivors of the Void DLC, is a phenomenal combination for fans of action-packed roguelike gaming. The base game's transition to 3D is seamless, offering intense battles and exploration. With the DLC, the addition of new survivors, items, and challenges breathes fresh life into an already fantastic experience. The cooperative gameplay is an absolute blast, and the ever-increasing difficulty keeps you on your toes. If you're seeking an endlessly replayable and exhilarating adventure, this dynamic duo is a must-have in your gaming library.

    Very fun game to play with your friends. Can give you hundreds of hours of fun.

    Simple design in many ways which also grants it a straight forward experience, the only complexity may reside in the items you collect.

    Highly recommended, levels could be quite repetitive over time but there's many challenges you can do in order to unlock different items and bonuses in game. There're many easter eggs and secrets which makes it even better.
    • many quests/missions for items and bonuses
    • co-op
    • easy to play
    • potentially repetitive over time

    Good game that I recommend! It's worth 6 bucks for sure if you like these kinds of games. It's really easy to learn how to play and that makes it addicting as well. I, personally, can't get enoug of it. I suggest you buy it, lads.
    • Pretty chill game
    • Easy to play (gets harder later on)

    • I guess it can get too repetitve for some people

    Risk of Rain 1 but better in every possible way. Fun, engaging, really hard. Absolute banger of a soundtrack. Supports co-op, which hilariously makes the game even harder. The DLC is great, definitely worth buying.

    • Engaging
    • Banger soundtrack
    • Really hard
    • Virtually none

    it's really fun to play with other friends and also alone. All in all it's a great game and the boss fights are well made. i recommend it to other people to buy and it's also really cheap so...i would say that there aren't any problems to complain about. The game isn't really that easy to beat so it needs a lot of grinding in one session.
    • beatiful visuals
    • well desinged bosses
    • doesn't need that much storage
    • really fun

    Go check out my review of this game @ Belfalor on Youtube. I've made a 19 minute video explaining what I love about the game and what makes it so fun.

    In short, Risk of Rain 2 manages to have an incredible amount of variety in depth in its gameplay, which results in a constantly fun and fresh experience.

    Multiple, different characters to unlock, over 100 items to discover and use, various maps and bosses to encounter.

    This game is an absolute marvel, and on top of all that, it features an incredible soundtrack by Chris Christodolou. Add to that a gorgeous, yet simple, artstyle, and it just fits so well together.

    Even if you don't like roguelikes, I'd recommend this game to anyone. I myself am not one to play many roguelike, but this is now one of my favourite games of all time. Sincerely recommend it.

    Enjoy your time in Risk of Rain 2, survivor!
    • Fresh and Fun Gameplay
    • Phenomenal Soundtrack
    • Various Bosses & Maps
    • Gorgeous Artstyle
    • Absolutely Nothing

    I almost never buy games in early access because I am big skeptic toward those games how will they end up. But since I really really loved original and really loved graphics on this one. So I got it and I was not sorry at ALL. I already have almost 150h in it and I do not intend to stop. Game has good variations though I would like more different variations of the maps though maps do have often some doors and halls opened in one run but closed in another which brings up more variations. Really lot (and I mean LOT) enemies and great variations among survivors and their ways of fighting.
    I swear even if developers decide to release this game now and stop working on it I would be really sad but game is much more completed and polished then some big "aaa games" I never had any crashes at the game and game does not have big requirements at all.
    • Style of art and music
    • Geat variations in survivors play style.
    • Gameplay
    • Fun to play with friends and solo
    • Low requriements and great performance
    • Only 5 enviroments atm (but game is still in development) and we already got 2 more.

    This game is absolutely amazing in every single aspect,it has extremely fun single and multiplayer, great features, tons of replayability and all i can say is that im having a blast with this game.It is early access but has already enough content to keep me satisfied for over 80 hours already, and there are about 5 characters that are "under construction" and there are also some new features coming in the future. It is challenging, hardcore, and tons of fun! Sure it has some bugs (i mean still early access) but with the amount of love and support it is getting it will surely grow to be a titan.
    • Very fun single player experience
    • ABSOLUTELY AMAZING MULTIPLAYER EXPERIENCE
    • tons of replayability
    • 6 different characters, with more coming soon
    • Literally nothing
