'Deep Rock Galactic' Reveals New DLC Details, Season 04: Critical Corruption Date - Trailer

by Rainier on May 17, 2023 @ 1:34 p.m. PDT

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 developer Ghost Ship Games have revealed the launch date of the next batch of content for Deep Rock Galactic, Season 04: Critical Corruption. 

Arriving on Steam’s Experimental Branch in early June 2023, before launching on 15th June, Season 04 introduces a mutated variant of the Rockpox disease that spawned in Season 03. Among many secrets yet to be revealed, this ever evolving plague has brought new enemy types lurking in the mines, a new Weapons Framework DLC with a trailer debuting soon.

Let's Get Critical, Critical
Season 04: Critical Corruption sees the hazardous evolution of the Rockpox disease which first arrived in Hoxxes IV last season. Inhabitants of Deep Rock Galactic’s proprietary planet have succumbed to the disease, spreading the contagion in a rage. To be revealed in the coming weeks, the coming Season will bring new enemies, new ways to destroy them, and new ways to traverse the hazardous holes of Hoxxes IV.

A Plaguey Performance Pass
As always, the Performance Pass is back again, offering an all-new Cosmetic Tree featuring 100 levels packed full with gear, weapons frameworks, crafting materials and the always-valued company Scrip to unlock — all for free. Players who spend more than their share of time in the sick bay with Rockpox need to not worry though, anything missed from Season 03 will go into existing loot pools to find at another time. 

To mark the launch of the Season 04 and its Performance Pass, a new Decontaminator Pack, comes to the game, featuring a brand new Weapons Framework to accompany previous DLC packs and armour.

Key Features:

  • 1 to 4 player Co-Op: Work together as a team to dig, explore, and fight your way through massive cave systems filled with hordes of deadly enemies and valuable resources.
  • 4 Unique Classes: Mow through enemies as the Gunner, scout ahead and light up the caves as the Scout, chew through solid rock as the Driller, or support the team with defensive structures and turrets as the Engineer.
  • Fully Destructible Environments: Destroy everything around you to reach your goal. There is no set path so you can complete your mission your way. But proceed with caution, you don’t want to stumble into an alien swarm unprepared!
  • Procedurally Generated Cave Network: Explore a network of procedurally generated cave systems filled with enemies to fight and riches to collect. 
  • High-Tech Gadgets and Weapons: Clean the caves of Hoxxes IV with the CSPR Flamethrower and the "Lead Storm" Powered Minigun, light the way with flares, tackle tough terrain with the Reinforced Power Drill and reach new heights with the grappling hook.

Deep Rock Galactic is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S (Microsoft Store) and PC (Steam) @ $29.99/€29.99/£24.99.
