Hello Miners,
Last week, we notified you that the Legacy version of DRG was being removed now that the Five Year anniversary event is over. Our original plan was to have the Legacy version as a fun retrospect into how much DRG has evolved in these last five years. But we heard from a lot of you that you want to keep the Legacy edition around. And that is what we’ll do.

Accessing legacy work differently to how it was during the Five Year Anniversary event – we are moving Legacy to its own Steam Branch. For details on how to access it, see ... Read more

Hello Miners, The booze is gone, the jukebox is full of beans, and the Anniversary event is finally coming to an end after 2 weeks of trophy hunting, free beer, and smooth jazz. We hope you have enjoyed the event just as much as we enjoyed making it. And a most hearty thank you to everyone who purchased the Supporter II Upgrade - it has been humbling and encouraging to read all the wonderful reviews.

A small PSA: We will keep DRG Legacy Edition available for an additional week. It was initially meant to go away with the Anniversary Event, but we’ll keep it around until the next patch, which is scheduled for Thursday, March 23rd. More than fifty thousand of you have had a dive into this janky ol’ time capsule and seen first-hand how far DRG has come in the past five years. And if you haven’t had a chance to try out DRG Legacy yet, well, now you have another week to do so.

Thank you again for celebrating these past five years with us, Miners. We are hard at work on Sea... Read more

Hello Miners, Some of you caught our Anniversary Stream earlier this week, but for the rest of you: We have revealed the first batch of games we are going to publish through Ghost Ship Publishing!

We know that a lot of you are following Deep Rock Galactic for DRG-related news and may not be as interested in what we are doing in terms of publishing. But the news we have to share is still rather DRG-adjacent: One of the games revealed is actually a game in the DRG universe! Allow us to introduce:

Hello, Miners! We can hardly believe it, but it is the FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of DRG! This calls for a party, and Management has gone all-out this year. The celebrations will start on MARCH 2nd and ends MARCH 16th.

WELCOME TO THE PARTY The Space Rig has been decked out in style once more! Balloons and confetti and gilded plastic crap all over the place - everything valued corporate drones could want in a mandated company event. Have a good time - Management is specifically requesting it!

FREE BEERS It wouldn't be a party on Space Rig 17 without Lloyd disabling his Credit Inhibitor and serving up frothing mugs of ale for free - and this year is no exception! Head to the Abyss Bar and guzzle away - Company Policy directly states that all employees are required to drink responsibly, and we trust that nobody knows mor... Read more

Hello, Miners! The Annual Anniversary Ghost Ship Games Live Stream is back for yet another year! Those of you who’ve been with Deep Rock during the past 5 years will be well aware of this exciting yearly event - but if you’ve just joined up during this past year, allow us to explain:

Each year during DRG’s anniversary we run a live stream session featuring the founders and key members of Ghost Ship Games, talking about the past, present, and future of the game. This year will be no exception, especially since this time we’ll be celebrating HALF A DECADE of co-op fun, lucrative mining, and fond memories - all made possible by the game itself, and not least of all YOU: The community.

The live stream will take place on {LINK REMOVED}... Read more

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.

Hello Miners, Great news! The {LINK REMOVED}‘Hiring for Hoxxes’ Recruitment Video Competition is live!.

As most of you know, Deep Rock Galactic is always recruiting new Miners to fill the company ranks. Working on Hoxxes is a rewarding yet dangerous undertaking, so to maintain headcount the company needs a steady inflow of new starters. And that is where you come in.

Make a recruitment video of modest length (no longer than 1:30 minute in length), showing potential new recruits why they should join Deep Rock Galactic, and you may win some very handsome rewards: A Steam Deck, a Golden Loot Bug plush, a gaming headset, a dwarven beard wig and a signed poster from Ghost Ship Games. Besides being celebrated by the team at Ghost Ship Games, of course. ... Read more

Hello Miners, The Lunar Festival officially starts today! There is plenty to enjoy in this first (but definitely not last) Seasonal Event of 2023. As the moons of Hoxxes converge once again, here is the list of what you can experience:

  • The Lunar Rabbit hat - Rewarded for completing said assignment.
  • A decorated Space Rig for you to enjoy with your team members while wearing said hat
  • An opportunity for Double Season XP awarded when you find and deposit decorative rabbit statues during missions. Yes, the Longbeard freighter carrying the shipment crashed onto Hoxxes…again. Management has some questions for whoever signed the exclusivity agreement with Longbeard Freight.
  • And as has become customary, you will of course get last year’s Lunar Festiva...

Hello Miners, We have another feature incoming for Season 03! So brace for impact.

METEOR SHOWER ----------------------------
During any mission you play, there will be a chance for a meteor shower to perforate the caves of Hoxxes. Smaller Lithophage Meteorites will come hurtling down on you and your team, so make sure to stand clear of the impact zones. This new danger also provides a lucrative opportunity, as the meteors can contain Plaguehearts. Their size and density make it possible to break them down with your regular pickaxe. No need for special equipment.

Meteor showers will start raining down on Hoxxes with today’s patch - so get cracking, miners!

And thanks to everyone who has nominated DRG for ‘Labor of Love’ in this year's Steam Awards so far. Your support and encouragement make this labor easy to ... Read more

It’s time to vote, Miners!
Nominations for the 2022 Steam Awards are open, and we would love it if you would vote for DRG in the ‘Labor of Love’ category.

Because DRG really is a labor of love for all of us here at Ghost Ship. We hope that all of you playing DRG feel that, and that definitely seems to be the case judging by the response from Season 03.

It’s been a little over two weeks since we launched Season 03, and it’s surpassed all our expectations. More of you have joined the ranks of DRG than ever before, with Season 03 setting the record for the highest number of concurrent players ever in the game. More than 46.000 of you were playing at the same time following the release of Season 03, with many hundreds of thousands of new miners joining since the Rockpox first arrived. Whether your beard is green, g... Read more

Hello Miners,
The Rivals have been pushed back for the moment, but only just in time for a brand new threat to rear its ugly head. An insidious lithophage, a sickness of the very rock beneath our feet, has struck Hoxxes.

Nicknamed the ROCKPOX, this planetary pathogen is spreading through the caves, infecting the rock and even directly affecting the local fauna. Even the hardy Dwarves can feel its insidious grasp.

Prepare for PLAGUEFALL!

With Love,
The Ghost Ship Crew
