Deep Rock Galactic outlines 2021 plans, including biggest update ever


The cooperative mining and shooting game Deep Rock Galactic will receive additional new updates through 2021, including what is arguably the largest update in the game’s three-year history. The science fiction dwarfs don’t seem to stop killing their insects anytime soon. The first update will be smaller in April, while the second is planned for some time between July and September.

The first update is called Bits N ‘Pieces and will include official modding support (on Steam). In the first version, it will likely not have a Steam Workshop integration. There will also be a great offset for weapons as well as the ability to rebind controller inputs.

The second update is what developers said was “our biggest update ever”. The unnamed Update 35 will include a new mission type, new weapons, new clocks for the new and old weapons, and new cosmetics and UI updates.

Our Robin Valentine called Deep Rock Galactic “a door to a never-ending co-op adventure” when he wrote last year about how his staff chose it. He specifically pointed out how the game uses procedural generation within defined frameworks to make cool missions appear on the fly. Deep Rock Galactic also had a new update in January that added two new biomes and corresponding new bosses, the Hiveguard, Lacerator and Arbalest. I hate them all.
