According to the official Risk of Rain Twitter account, the update for Switch will be the same content-wise as on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Bandit and a new coat of paint aside, Risk of Rain 2 will, starting tomorrow, feature a new boss, character and stage updates, new skill variants (equip three different skills), stackable items and the mentioned quality of life improvements: AI, new challenges, performance optimisations and more.
