Risk of Rain 2, the sci-fi third-person shooter which left Early Access last month, is going to be recieving a port to Google Stadia. This version of the game will have a new stage known as the Sundered Grove which will be a platform-exclusive for an unstated amount of time.
Risk of Rain 2 is the three-dimensional sequel to the 2013 2D action roguelike where players have to fight a wide variety of alien monsters in order to escape a hostile planet. The game has just released from Early Access August 11 to very positive reviews on Steam and consoles, but now it's making the jump to the Stadia. While there's no release date for the port, it will have sole access to a new stage called the Sundered Grove. The press release says:
Explore the new Sundered Grove, where ancient flora has risen up to reclaim this once sacred refuge. Mazes of roots and overgrown fungus have twisted the landscape, leaving only ruins. Battle through the lofty canopy to the deep underground. Sundered Grove will accompany Abyssal Depths and Siren’s Call as an alternate fourth stage where survivors will search the entangled area for the legendary chest.
Hopoo Games co-founders Paul Morse and Duncan Drummond spoke about porting their game to the Stadia, saying that the possibility of "broadening the access and instant playability of our game across devices" was their main reason to partner with Google for this port. The two are confident that Risk of Rain fans new and old will be willing to appreciate the effort and try out the game on the Stadia, along with the game's exclusive stage.
There's no release date for the Risk of Rain 2 Stadia port. The game is available for PC via Steam, Nintendo Swtich, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
