Patch Notes 

This update adds support and content for the Survivors of the Void Expansion for Risk of Rain 2 on console! 

With this update, all supported platforms have the same content and bug fixes. When we developed this patch, we took a holistic approach that focused on unifying PC & console. This means we'll reduce platform-specific bugs and bring fixes and new content to console players much faster. We're excited about the future of Risk of Rain 2 and can't wait for you all to join us. 

There have been several previous updates to the Risk of Rain 2 PC experience. These updates include balance changes and bug fixes that had not yet been addressed in the console versions of the game. This update is also addressing those issues, and regardless if you purchase DLC all players will be receiving all the previous updates, which you can view in previous PC Patch Notes here ( As it’s an extensive list, we will not be calling out specific community changes or bug fixes here. We’ll focus on the new content arriving with Survivors of the Void

Major Content Changes

The changes below will be applied to owners of the Survivors of the Void Expansion. For players that have miraculously avoided any spoilers, and would like to continue doing so, we suggest not reading the patch notes below.

    • This mode is available to players playing solo. Multiplayer Eclipse mode is not currently supported on the console version of Risk of Rain 2. This feature will be added in a future patch.
  • Added support for the Survivors of the Void expansion. 
  • Addressed clipping issues, especially notable with players passing through walls. 
  • Improved knockback mechanics, and adjusted air velocity. 
  • Adjusted certain textures that were overly opaque, resulting in obscured vision. 
  • A new trophy has been introduced for players that defeat a new threat within the expansion. 
  • ‘Ignite’ effects are now all calculated the same way and always will deal half their damage over time. 
  • Introduced large variants of damage, healing, and utility chests. 
  • Cleansing pools are more common. 
  • Artificer's ‘Flamethrower’ now scales its damage ticks with attack speed. 
  • Addressed an imbalance where Distant Roost had fewer interactable credits than Titanic Plains, leading to fewer interactable spawns. 
  • Golems and Shrines can now appear snowy or sandy, in addition to their regular look. 
  • The game's difficulty timer will no longer halt upon entering the Void Fields. 
  • Void fog damage now scales with level and ignores armor, Tougher Times, Armor Plating, and Planula.

  • Bug fixes.
