Risk of Rain 2 will be launching its first expansion, Survivors of the Void, in early 2022. Survivors of the Void will feature a new game mode, items, monsters, and even two new survivors.

Released in 2019, Risk of Rain 2 is a popular rougelite, third-person shooter where survivors must fight monsters in order to escape an alien planet.

In Survivors of the Void, the aliens have grown stronger and have been unleashed from their home: The Void. Survivors must activate two new Void items and fight off the monsters in this expansion.

On Nov. 18, Hopoo Games and Gearbox Publishing announced Dev Thoughts #23, sharing with players what they can expect from Survivors of the Void. This included updated key art and additional details of the expansion such as the new game mode — The Simulacrum.

The Simulacrum is a wave-based arena that will be played both single and multiplayer. The game mode takes place in a Void-simulation where players can use any unlocked artifacts. The Simulacrum is endless and will only end once players have died.
