Rain World comes to Xbox, with additional Downpour expansion

Rain World and Rain World: Downpout come to console

The ‘Dark Souls of X’…? Yeah, we’ve heard it many times. But Rain World is certainly the Dark Souls of platforming! Today marks the release of this fast-paced and frantic survival platformer, as Rain World on Xbox launches, alongside the Downpour expansion on all formats.

Dog Eat Dog World

Releasing today on Xbox, the shear brutality of Rain World has been enjoyed by thousands of Steam players since 2017, followed by those on PlayStation and Switch platforms. This has allowed the game to be awarded a ‘Very Positive’ review base over on Steam.

You will be playing as a slugcat, isolated from its family and all alone in this dangerous world. However, like every animal here you must find something to eat, and strength certainly isn’t your forte. This slugcat is a sly little thing, and stealth will be your best friend, as you sneak up on other creatures to take them down, bouncing across the screen like a headless chicken.

Occasionally you will be able to join the party as two animals are already fighting, making things even easier for you. Of course, the other side of the coin is where some of the more ravenous, larger creatures look to take a bite out of you!

The game is also playable with up to four local co-op players, if you wish to explore the joys of Rain World with friends and family!

Downpour DLC

In addition to the base game of Rain World releasing today, players can also get their hands on the Downpour DLC, which first launched elsewhere in 2019.

This is more of the same classic Rain World action, with the most notable addition being that of slugcat variants. Over time, the slugcat has evolved, allowing players to take on different forms. Each form will have unique abilities that switch up gameplay significantly, such as the explosive Artificer and aquatic Rivulut.

Downpour Key Features

  • Breaking New Ground to Explore – Survive and explore ten expansive new regions – featuring thousands of new maps, environments, creatures, and weather anomalies to discover
  • Five Additional Characters – Each with unique abilities, skill sets, gameplay style, and stories
  • Challenge Mode – Put your survivability to the test in multiple pre-constructed arena scenarios, adapting to each room as the difficulty increases
  • Safari Mode – Observe an ecosystem unfold! Revisit areas once explored safely through the eyes of an observer – control and play as other creatures in the game to influence the scene
  • Jolly Co-Op – Up to four local players can explore and survival all base-game campaigns in this local co-op mode. See if the power of friendship can overcome the treacherous world of Rain World
  • Expedition Mode – A Rain World randomizer dropping you anywhere in the world with a task to complete some of the game’s toughest challenges

Rain World Game Description

You are a slugcat. The world around you is full of danger, and you must face it – alone. Separated from your family in a devastating flood, you will need to find food and shelter between terrifying torrential downpours which threaten to drown all life. Climb through the ruins of an ancient civilization, evade the jaws of vicious predators, and discover new lands teeming with strange creatures and buried mysteries. Find your family before something makes a meal of you! 

Inspired by the simplicity and aesthetics of 16-bit classics, this survival platformer requires clever decision-making, both to catch your own prey and to avoid the jaws of hungry predators. Each ravenous foe in your path will be cunning, vicious and always on the hunt – eager to sink their teeth into you, or even each other. As a small, soft slugcat you must rely on stealth and wit rather than force: learn the ecosystem and turn their strengths to your advantage. Maybe then you can survive… Rain World!

Downpour Game Description

Return to the unwavering wild in Downpour, where you explore new, harsh lands and survive new predators. As time passed, the slugcat has evolved. With five variants of the species – take advantage of various skills that they possess and explore their own personal tales.
