The Scorched Acres Update Is Coming To "Risk Of Rain 2" This Week

Gearbox Publishing and Hopoo Games are gearing up to release a brand new update for Risk Of Rain 2 this week with "Scorched Acers". The game is still sitting in Early Access, meaning that as much as we want to say it's already been released, it's technically "not released" yet. So the update, in a sense, is adding content they intended to include in the game all along, they just didn't get around to finishing it until now. There's not really any news about the release from the developers yet beyond a roadmap they posted on their Steam news page a while ago, but we do have a clue from several interviews and social media posts about what will all be included.

Supposedly, this update will be adding a plethora of new items including new gear, a new stage, a new boss, and an all-new survivor who goes by the name of Rex and has legs that are either cybernetic or robotic. So he'll have some special abilities in robotics but also involved with plants, as you can throw darts at enemies but it will cost you life in the process. The update will be added to Risk Of Rain 2 on June 25th, so be ready for some weird new toys to play with and a new character that should change things up.
