Risk of Rain Comes to PS4 & PS Vita in Early 2016 With New Features

February 23, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

Partnering with developer Code Mystics, Hopoo Games announced that they’re bringing Risk of Rain to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in early 2016.

An action plaformer with roguelike elements and permanent death, Risk of Rain on PlayStation will have new features over the PC version, including integrated automatic matchmaking. This means you can be placed into an online lobby with up to three other people with the push of a button.

As Hopoo Games’s Duncan Drummond explained, Risk of Rain also includes simultaneous local and online multiplayer, and cross-platform support:

But what would Risk of Rain be without playing with friends? Now you can play on the couch, and on the internet — all at once! While we still have the four-player local co-op available in Risk of Rain, you can now play online lobbies while sharing a machine with your friend — up to two per machine. Wanna just play online instead? You can also invite your friends into your lobby through PSN to get all your game buddies into one lobby.

‘But Duncan, what if my friend is on PS Vita and I’m on PS4?’ No worries — we know that people prefer playing on their own platform, so now we also have cross-platform online support between PS Vita and PS4. That means that both a player sitting on the couch on his PS4 and a player on the bus playing on his PS Vita can enjoy Risk of Rain chaos — together.

Will you be getting Risk of Rain?
