Risk of Rain Returns Revealed for Switch and PC as Remake of the First Risk of Rain

Gearbox Publishing announced they will publish the Hopoo Games-developed multiplayer rogue-like Risk of Rain Returns on Switch and PC via Steam.

Risk of Rain Returns takes everything we learned making Risk of Rain 2 and applies it to the original we created back in our dorm room,” said Duncan Drummond, co-founder of Hopoo Games. “As we chart our future as developers, it was important to us that we look back on our early work. Risk of Rain Returns is a small token of our appreciation to this incredible community. We hope everyone is as excited about the future as we are.”

Risk of Rain Returns will be a remake of the 2013 Risk of Rain with an updated codebase. This version will expand on the original with new features and elements taken from feedback gathered from Rist of Rain 2.

The pixel art is now in HD, with original and new music from Chris Christodoulou and various balance changes. This modern has been remastered and packed with new ways to play. No two runs are the same, especially now with enhanced new and familiar Survivors, customizable Survivor abilities, fresh items, deadly monsters, and a game mode.
