Survivors of the Void is landing on consoles on November 8th! Soon you will be able to embrace the void on console and enjoy wielding new items, exploring more stages, facing new horrifying monsters, and playing as new survivors!

The Risk of Rain 2 team deeply appreciates your patience as we diligently worked on getting Survivors of the Void up and running on consoles.
