What Was Left Behind

It’s fantastic to finally be welcoming you all to Deep Rock Galactic 1.0!
This marks the end of more than two years of Early Access development and It has been an amazing journey! We could not have asked for a better community to have along for the ride. And, if you are a new player, rest assured that hard work in the mines awaits you, alongside high adventure, big guns, fancy beards, alien monsters ... and of course - all your fellow dwarven miners!
We are super, super excited to leave Early Access and seeing where the game will go from here. And fear not...we are far from done adding to DRG!
Rock And Stone!
~ With Love, The Ghost Ship Crew

Update 30: Going 1.0 was released on the 13th May 2020.

Update Changes[edit | edit source]

Soundtrack Vol. II[edit | edit source]

SOUNDTRACK VOL. II For the last year we have been working on a Vol. II of the soundtrack for DRG - and it is finally here - allowing you to mine, fight and groove to 14 completely new tracks of synthy, bassy goodness! Deep Rock Galactic needs to invest in some bigger speakers… NOW!

New Promotion Tiers[edit | edit source]

Believe it or not but now there are 3 more Tiers above Gold, for when you are promoting your dwarves: PLATINUM, DIAMOND, LEGENDARY! This is mainly a show-off thing for super veteran players who have been investing blood, sweat and a lot of time in Deep Rock Galactic. We salute you!

Prestige Assignments[edit | edit source]

As you increase your Player Rank, you will get access to special Prestige Assignments. Completing them will reward you with full sets of Pickaxe parts, Armor skins and new Helmets. Prestige Assignments are unlocked at Player Rank 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 75 and 100.

A couple of months ago we were toying around with awarding you vanity on the promotion itself (some of you might have tested it on the Experimental build), but we were not totally happy with the system and have instead gone for an approach with unlocking Prestige Assignments based on your Player Rank.

Biome Changes[edit | edit source]

Crystalline Caverns have gotten more crystal variations. It’s now crystal clear why it is called by that name!

Community Requests[edit | edit source]

Post Update Hotfixes[edit | edit source]

Hotfix 1[edit | edit source]

16th May, 2020

  • Fixed Dreadnought eggs in elimination was not using correct terrain detection and could be placed on very thin ground, making the egg break immidiatly.
  • The egg can no longer be removed by removing terrain below it before it has been broken. (It leaves half a shell that can then be removed by removing terrain)
  • Explosive barrel dispenser now selects a nearby location when it fails to find a valid location rather than 0,0,0 - The actor should now be destroyed properly when game events explode
  • Flares are now upgraded from the start instead of having to purchase mods. Those who bought the mods will get them refunded. The flare mods were a remnant from the old upgrade system. They were not adding anything substantial to the player progression and were an unnecessary hindrance to new players
  • Adjusted Machine event floor height so that they are less covered. (Like before)

Hotfix 2[edit | edit source]

20th May, 2020

Hello Miners!

We just released a new hotfix patch and besides the usual chunk of fixes and tweaks, we’ve also added some things in relation to the cosmetic Packs.

First of all, we realized that the Dark Future Pack lacked an obvious component: a Dark Future Paintjob for all weapons. It makes sense to have the counterpart included so you can have a complete look with one purchase.

From all the feedback we got (and thanks for that), it was clear that some were quite confused on what they had actually received in the various Packs and where to find the items. So we have now added a nice Claim pop-up for each Pack, including the Supporter Upgrade. This will pop for all that have bought the Packs no matter how long time since it was acquired.

Finally, we saw there was a clear expectation that buying a Pack with a unique Framework (armor or weapon mesh) would include a Paintjob that was applicable across all meshes of the same type. This is not the case by default, so we added the Pack unique Paintjobs to fit other meshes.

For the in-game Frameworks (again both armor and weapon meshes), we have now added a new icon to the default Paintjob indicating that this default Paintjob is just the basic skin and not applicable to all meshes.

In this hotfix you will also find a small QoL feature for photosensitive players, and minor convenience tweaks like changing Waypoint marker to Use key (defaults to E) instead of holding Fire, which was not super intuitive.

We’ll keep listening to your feedback and adjust accordingly.

With love, The Ghost Ship Crew
