Hopoo Games Studio introduced The 26th Dev Thoughts for the roguelike shooter Risk of Rain 2 with the final details on the Survivors of the Void expansion. A 13-minute fragment with a gameplay demonstration also appeared on the IGN YouTube channel. Both videos are dedicated to the second new class – The Void Fiend.
The Void Fiend is a corrupted survivor that constantly shifts from a controlled form to an aggressive dark form. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Upon reaching 100% Corruption, a state change occurs, increasing on damage and decreasing on healing, but steadily increasing in one way or another. In the second form, it is constantly decreasing, so you need to have time to use the powerful abilities that have opened.
In human form, the Drown weapon fires a long-range slowdown beam that deals 300% damage, while in aggressive form it becomes a short-range, rapid-firing weapon. The second weapon, the Flood Cannon Arm, normally fires plasma missiles for 600% damage and fires exploding orbs for 1100% damage while charging. In demonic mode, projectiles of the second type are fired instantly and the radius of action is doubled.
The Trespass ability allows the survivor to remove all negative statuses by disappearing into the void for a short time. In the “corrupted” form, the character makes a powerful leap forward and quickly gets close to opponents. The second ability, Suppress, slows down the transition from one form to another: in the normal form, the hero absorbs 25% of damage and restores the same amount of health, and in the dark, he loses 25% health and increases damage .
The developers also announced that with the release of the add-on Risk of Rain 2 will appear Epic game store. In this shop Survivors of the Void will be available at the same price ($15) and starting discount (35%) as in steam. The versions support cross-platform multiplayer.
