Deep Rock Galactic is a procedurally generated first person co-op shooter for up to 4 players.

As a team of veteran dwarven space miners, you must go on missions for your corporate overlords and venture into the deepest, most dangerous cave systems of the most hostile planet ever discovered.

Experience teamwork as you’ve never experienced it in a co-op game before. Complete missions and gather ever more riches. Expand your roster of class-based skills, unlock new gear and weapons, and take on the worst monsters the galaxy has to offer.

Players take up arms as one of four classes of badass dwarven miners, each with their own invaluable set of skills and gear. The Driller, the Engineer, the Scout and the Gunner must work together to survive a relentless onslaught of ravenous aliens and escape the procedurally generated caves with their bounty intact.

Enlisted dwarves will be paired with up to three like-minded brethren and sent on missions to the most hostile planet ever discovered, Hoxxes IV, to mine precious gems and metals. Cooperation is essential to your success and, as an interplanetary mining conglomerate, Deep Rock Galactic depends on its employees to take care of each other.

Coffee Stain Publishing and Ghost Ship Games announced that their space-bound mining shooter is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in January 2022.

This news comes as the game celebrates a motherlode of milestones and key announcements. 

From launching the Performance Pass, a completely free take on a Battle Pass which introduces a seasonal cadence of free content to players, to recently surpassing over three million units sold, the game continues to build momentum over a year since it launched onto Steam and Xbox One in 2020.

In its latest run of content drops, Ghost Ship launched the Performance Pass, a brand-new incentive program which brings a swathe of unlockable content completely free, with 100 levels of unlocks, challenges to complete and bonuses. To advance through these levels, players can earn performance points by completing the challenges, with a new one added each day.

Over 3 million strong, Deep Rock Galactic’s player base is known as being one of the most passionate and welcoming communities in multiplayer gaming, and the game has the critical acclaim to back it up. Over the past 12 months it has received a slew of accolades including two SXSW Awards for Indie Game of the Year and Excellence in Multiplayer, and was shortlisted for a BAFTA in the Multiplayer category.
