Kill bosses and find a teleporter
What is the gameplay like in Risk of Rain 2? The player can discover different areas on the planet. There are monsters and big bosses to fight everywhere. The environments as well as the spawned enemies and objects are randomly generated and offer a different gaming experience each time.
You work your way up to the final end boss and a teleporter, which the player can then use to escape from the planet.
Or you stay in the strange environment and test how long you can survive. In the game there is a scaling system that ensures that the game character, but also the opponents, become stronger and more demanding.
There are over 110 items to collect in the game world. The more items you have, the more diverse the effects that their combinations cause. At the same time, the logs are filled with stories and strategies with the new found items.
Overall, a whole space crew is available as game characters in the game. The individual characters can be unlocked in the course of the game and each have their own fighting style and skills.

Risk of Rain 2 is probably one of my favorite games of all time […] It’s a roguelike like no other. First of all, most of the roguelikes I know are 2D, and when I saw Risk of Rain switch from 2D to 3D, I was skeptical that I would enjoy it as much as the first game. But I’m really impressed with how well it’s executed.
The gameplay loop is so satisfying. The way you acquire loot, the ways to complete the game, the variety of characters, items and builds you can have, the smooth controls…all of this is near perfection in my opinion […].
