Hello Miners,
Deep Rock Galactic is turning six years old!

It seems like just yesterday that we watched our little game take its first steps. Just a blink of an eye, and the years whizz past... now, we’ll watch from the window with teary eyes, as our six-year-old game hops on the bus all by itself for its very first day at school.

Anyway, we’re throwing a party! The 'Six Years in Orbit' Anniversary Celebrations kick off on February 28th at 13:00 CET, and the event will run until March 14th at 13:00 CET.

Let's check out what the party’s packin’.

Introducing the MK6 Armor set
After six years of trials, R&D has officially cleared the new MK6 Armor Set for limited field testing. And as part of this Anniversary celebration, you’ll have the unique opportunity to earn this cutting-edge new armor, months ahead of schedule!

The MK6 Armor Experimental Trials assignment will give you permanent access to the MK6 suit for all four classes.

This assignment is time-limited, however – if you don’t complete it by the time the celebration ends, you won’t be able to snag the MK6 armor until it rolls out for general release in Season 05! At that point, it'll become available in the Accessory Shop, like the other armors.

Celebratory work assignment! Plus a hat A good party requires party hats. And a party hat requires an assignment, because Deep Rock Galactic is a business, not a charity. Complete the Anniversary Bonus assignment, and you’ll unlock the delightfully wobbly Party Hat - Year Six balloon top hat. As with all our anniversary hats, this one is a rare time-limited opportunity.

Left over from Mission Control’s nephew’s 6th birthday party. Keep it away from anything pointy.

New ‘Event Countdown’ monitor We’re adding a little monitor over by the Assignment Board that displays a countdown until a current seasonal event ends. This should make it easier for everybody to check how much time’s left to complete some assignments, or enjoy the decorations!

We’ll be keeping this monitor for all future time-limited events.

Ignore the date displayed on the screen there, that was just for a test. We’re not running this event for a year and a half.

Double experience As usual, you’ll have the opportunity to earn a Double Performance Pass Bonus! Collect the glittering Year 6 Anniversary Trophy while you’re down in the caves, and your whole crew will earn double experience for that mission.

Free beer for all After a long negotiation process, the Interplanetary Miner’s Union has reached an agreement with Management to run an open tab at the Abyss Bar for the entirety of this event.

You read that right: Two weeks of free beer.

This policy represents a significant financial risk to the company, as every beer poured puts a dent in the next corporate earnings report. Management requests that all dwarves drink responsibly.

A very fancy Space Rig The Space Rig’s got to look the part for this momentous occasion, so we’re giving it the full celebrity treatment. Expect tinsel, confetti, sparklers, champagne towers, chandeliers (borrowed from the estate of Mission Control’s grandmother), and a black marble dance floor at the Abyss Bar. You’ll think they sent a Waldorf Astoria to space. Black tie attire optional.

The celebrations start on Wednesday, February 28th at 13:00 CET. See you there!

With Love,
-The Ghost Ship Crew
