Yesterday Gearbox finally lifted the curtain on the long-awaited Borderlands 3, officially revealing the game to everyone, but that wasn't the only surprise up their sleeve. They also announced a new partnership with Hoppo Games to launch Risk of Rain 2 in Steam Early Access, meaning PC players can download it right now for £14.99 ($19.99 USD, €17.99).

A full launch is due to come later this year, but right now players who purchase the game get a free second copy to gift to a friend, meaning both can enjoy the 3D graphics and third-person shooter mechanics mixed with co-op roguelike gameplay.

For more on the game head on over to the Steam page, where we get the core pillars of the experience. There are randomised stages, enemies, bosses, and items, and you can play alongside your friends to take on these challenges and collect loot, with the goal being to escape the planet. Brand new survivors join classics like the Engineer and Commando, and both you and your enemies scale limitlessly. There are even Prismatic Trials to challenge your friends on a leaderboard.

For more on Risk of Rain 2 check out the trailer and screens below. Did you play the original game?
