It’ll soon be time to sharpen the pickaxe and get the beard grooming products in place as the dwarves of Deep Rock Galactic will soon be readying themselves for some mining!
From the publisher of Goat Simulator, Deep Rock Galactic is a cooperative space mining shooter – one that features dwarves as the main draw! With Ghost Ship Games behind the development, it is great that, after being limited to a Steam Closed Alpha, we’ll be seeing the game arrive on Xbox Game Preview – with Xbox Play Anywhere features – and Steam Early Access come Feb 28th 2018.
And it is that date in which you’ll be wanting to enlist recruits as you head off on an adventure fit for any dwarf. With exploration the key, this ambitious mining operation will see up to four of the finest dwarves the universe has ever known sent on missions to the most hostile planet ever discovered – Hoxxes IV. Your task? To mine the hell out of it, grabbing as many precious gems and metals possible.
Cooperation will be essential to your success and, as an interplanetary mining conglomerate, Deep Rock Galactic depends on its employees to take care of each other. It will therefore be up to you to utilise the skills of four different classes – the Driller, the Engineer, the Scout and the Gunner – as you work together to survive a relentless onslaught of ravenous aliens and escape the procedurally generated caves with all bounty intact.
“With Deep Rock Galactic, we wanted to create a true co-op experience where teamwork really matters. We’re mixing the traditional co-op shooter with all the goodness of huge procedural levels, lots of exploration and mining and all the personality of fantasy dwarves – but in a sci-fi setting,” says Mikkel Martin Pedersen, Game Director/Co-Founder of Ghost Ship Games.
“Moving into Early Access and Game Preview, we’re really excited to keep developing the game with the help of our awesome community. At launch, 7 unique regions of Planet Hoxxes will be ready to explore, mine and get lost in, but really this is just the beginning and Hoxxes has only just begun giving up her secrets. We have SO many more ideas and can’t wait to start implementing them all,” said Søren Lundgaard, CEO/Co-Founder of Ghost Ship Games.
We’ll be sure to remind you when the time comes to go mining!
