Hello, Miners! As we alluded to in our previous post, we have an anniversary coming up: DRG is turning five! In other words, it’s been five whole years since we launched the game into Early Access. And we couldn’t help ourselves (this is becoming custom), we had to do something special for this occasion. This event feels very special to us, and whether you are a Senior Miner or a new starter here at DRG, we hope you will feel it as well when you get to experience it. So let’s get to the announcements, shall we?
Year 5 Anniversary event Yes, there will of course be an in-game event for this year’s anniversary. With Space Rig decoration, rewards, and botched Longbeard Freight deliveries - all that you have come to expect. More details will be revealed in due time, but you can already add it to your calendar: The Year 5 anniversary starts on Thursday, 2nd March
, and ends on Thursday, 16th March
But wait, there’s more.
DRG Legacy To commemorate 5 years in orbit, we are adding the option to play the original version of the game. That’s right, you will be able to play DRG as it was when it originally launched in early 2018. Maybe you feel nostalgic and want to go back and experience those early days of glory. Or maybe you just want to appreciate everything that has been added since launch by actually seeing how different the game is today by comparison. Either way, grab some friends and mine like it is 2018.
Supporter II Upgrade DLC We got carried away - again. There’s been a repeated question from many of you: how can you help support the game since all the content updates we have released since launch have been free. So, for those of you who want to show your continued support of Deep Rock Galactic, we have put together a most decadent, most luxurious, most supportive package of cosmetic DLC and extra goodies. Behold, the aptly named, Supporter II Upgrade:https://store.steampowered.com/app/2291670/Deep_Rock_Galactic__Supporter_II_Upgrade
To all of you who will be donning the GSG GUARDIAN Weapon Framework and Armor Paintjob, as well as throwing back Supporter-styled Oily Oaf brews, we salute you. Rock and Stone!
There will be a couple more supply pods of information before we arrive at the Year 5 Anniversary. We will, just as in previous years, have a live stream from our office where we’ll talk about the past and future of DRG. We are in the midst of nailing down a date for this live stream and will of course tell you when it is confirmed.
And in case you were wondering, no, we are not slowing down on Deep Rock Galactic. On the contrary, we have never been as busy making exciting new things for this labor of love which now turns 5. Keep your eyes and ears open for more details on this, coming your way soon.
Until then, a massive thank you to you all - both veteran and newly joined miners! The fact that we are celebrating half a decade of Deep Rock is something we could only dream of when we first launched the game. We couldn’t be more pleased and proud to celebrate this milestone anniversary with you, our awesome community. So here‘s to the last five years, and may there be many more to come - we can’t wait to share them with you!Rock and Stone, Miners - Rock and Stone!With Love
