Risk of Rain 2 Delayed

A post on Steam reveals that Hopoo Games now plans on officially launching Risk of Rain 2 in August. This Windows roguelike shooter was previously expected this spring, but now they say they are taking extra time to make sure the game is a complete game experience when it graduates from Early Access:
We don’t take 1.0 lightly - we know a lot of players have been waiting for the full release to play the game, or have joined us early on in EA and are now holding off for the full release.

What we wanted to make sure was that RoR2 1.0 was truly a complete game experience, and that means not only completing and fleshing out content, but improving and iterating on old features and content that’s been left behind. In order to meet goals of what a 1.0 version of RoR2 can be, we want to let everyone know we will be releasing 1.0 in August 2020.

To be explicit: the timing has not been altered because of COVID-19 - we’re incredibly lucky in that our business was mostly unaffected. The timing has changed because we’re expanding the scope of the 1.0 Update. We almost completed the entirety of Early Access without any date changes! That said, we are pushing forward and can’t wait for everyone to experience the changes we’re bringing with the 1.0 Update.

The lack of save is my main and maybe only issue with the game.

That said, you I believe you can add savegame support via mods. While not ideal, at least let's you have a life. Check thunderstore.io

Ah, once again modders pick up the slack for developers. Thanks, Snabel, I'll look it up.

*EDIT* Ugh, looks like modding is barely supported; need multiple mods to get the Save mod working, but at least they exist. Tons of work from the modding community once again to add basic features to a game.

The basic gameplay is pretty good, but have they put in any progress saving mechanism yet? ie. like Dead Cells, where you can actually stop mid game to go to work or sleep, for example, and come back later to continue your saved game?

It was aggravating that you're basically stuck for hours (several builds ago, admittedly I haven't checked in awhile), aside from a pause button, with no way to save your progress on the run. Disrespectful of the player's time.

I'm surprised they pulled off the conversion to 3D, it actually stands up on its own and I really enjoyed the original.

This game is a ton of fun if you want the slightly rarer combo of third-person shooter mixed with roguelite. Keep it on the easiest setting until you unlock ANY character other than the default Commando, who's really boring and not representative of what the rest of the game offers. I love the Engineer, who gets a pair of deployable turrets that mirror the upgrades your character collects. It feels essentially complete as is, minus a few clearly signposted bits of content, and the upgrade/unlock loop feels well balanced.
