If you love a risk-and-reward style, Void Fiend is the survivor for you.
Hopoo Games, in collaboration with Gearbox Publishing, revealed the second new survivor for Risk of Rain 2‘s Survivors of the Void DLC. Void Fiend is the ideal survivalist for gamers who enjoy taking risks in order to reap large payouts.
For those who haven’t heard of it, Risk of Rain 2 is a fast-paced cooperative roguelike shooter developed by Hopoo Games and released by Gearbox Publishing. To escape the alien planet Petrichor V, players may team up with up to three people, play as 11 different survivors, and navigate through more than a dozen scenarios.
No two races are ever the same, thanks to unlocked alternative powers, a plethora of things to uncover in races, and equipable relics that provide variety to the game.
Void Fiend joins the battle to survive
The second new survivor, Void Fiend, will be released alongside the new Survivors of the Void expansion on March 1 on Steam and the Epic Games Store. Void Corruption, the unique mechanism of the Void Fiend, offers a tremendous power increase while also affecting the other Void Fiend abilities. When you take damage, corruption rises, and when you recover, it lowers, although it constantly increases slowly. The Void Fiend changes into a more aggressive form when Corruption hits 100%.
“Void Fiend answers the age-old question: what happens if you leave Commando out in the rain?” said Duncan Drummond, co-founder of Hopoo Games. “In all seriousness, we fell in love with the idea of letting players experience the Void as a character who has seen its depths and been altered by the darkness. It creates an entirely different gameplay experience unlike any Survivor currently in the game, all while harkening back to classic Survivors players know and love.”
This terrible command is only one part of Survivors of the Void, a must-have addition that adds the tough survivor Railgunner, 40 items, five scenarios, nine monsters, an alternate final boss, an infinite horde mode, new music, and more to Risk of Rain 2‘s famous gameplay cycle.
Risk of Rain 2 is out now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Survivors of the Void is available on PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on March 1. The new expansion is set to arrive on consoles this summer.
