15 survivors to master

Many survivors fled the mysterious attack on your ship.

Play solo or collect your crew

Drop to the surface alone or with your crew! Choose survivors that complement each other’s strengths and weaknesses, or go wild and pick whoever has the biggest guns (spoilers: it’s Loader). With up to four players online and in couch co-op, you’re not alone in this battle.

Risk of rain returns offers new and improved multiplayer services to ensure that the only thing standing in the way of your crew’s survival are the ever-growing hordes on Petrichor V.

Strong pickups

Fight your way to the surface while uncovering valuable cargo. These items serve as salvation, helping you move faster, deal more damage, or jump a little higher. Still others empower you in more dramatic ways – like the rare Ukulele, which amplifies your attacks with electrifying music.

If explosions are what you’re after, hunt down the Brilliant Behemoth and watch even your most mundane attacks erupt in a barrage of beautiful explosions. The magic is in the unpredictable combinations you create. Exploding chain lightning is just the beginning of your frenetic masterpiece!

The Perils of Petrichor V

The inhabitants of Petrichor V are as diverse as the many planets they once called home. As these monsters neared extinction on their own worlds, a mysterious force brought them to Petrichor V. The planet quickly grew into a menagerie of the galaxy’s most dangerous monsters, and they are not fond of invaders (aka DU).

Rule-Bending Artifacts

Diversity is the spice of destruction. Choose from more than 10 artifacts, each mutating your run! Maybe you want to start with a random piece of gear that changes every time it’s used, or maybe you want to experience a savage Imp invasion every 10 minutes. Play around with combinations of artifacts and discover exciting new ways to play.
