Hoopoo Games’ excellent roguelite third-person shooter, Risk of Rain 2, recently received a free Anniversary Update on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and that same update is finally set to arrive on Nintendo Switch tomorrow (Tuesday 17th August).
According to the official Risk of Rain Twitter account, the update on Switch is the exact same content-wise as on other systems and as such will see a host of tweaks, changes and additions made to the game, including the return of Bandit, a character from the first Risk of Rain who’s been rejigged to fit in better with this sequel.
Alongside the return of Bandit and the addition of a brand new boss to take on, the update notes also mention character and stage updates, new skill variants that allow players to sport three different skills, stackable items and a host of quality of life improvements including improved AI, new challenges, performance optimisations and more!
We dished out a very respectable 8/10 in our Risk of Rain 2 review, with Mitch calling it an “exceptionally well-designed take on the gameplay that made its predecessor popular.”
