This new piece of DRG music was one of the last contributions of DRG Sound Designer Troels, as he is embarking on a new chapter of his career. You can read all about that in our ... Read more

Hello Miners, Welcome to SEASON 04 - CRITICAL CORRUPTION! Though we have gained great ground against the rampaging Lithophage in the past months, it remains a constant threat - and to make matters worse, reports of alarming new mutations are starting to come in.

Let’s get right into it!

With Love,
The Ghost Ship Crew

Hello, Miners! Season 04: Critical Corruption is only weeks away (two weeks, to be specific)! You may have already tuned in for the premiere of the brand new Narrated Trailer, but just in case you missed it, here it is:

Let’s break down this critically corrupted collection of new features, shall we?

New Seasonal Event - Rockpox Corruptor
Remember those plague hearts you collected during Season 03? Well, they have evolved into hulking, ravenous monstrosities that you and your team will have to take down. As opposed to most of the native wildlife on Hoxxes, these beasts do not respond to gunfire - you will have to use the Cleansing Equipment designed for fighting the Rockpox on this t... Read more

Hello Miners! Last week we announced our next upcoming DLC - the DECONTAMINATOR PACK - and as usual we’ve been following along on all your feedback in the wake of it. Turns out a good chunk of you didn’t feel it was up to our usual standards - in particular the titular Weapon Framework itself, and the accompanying Paintjob. We had a bit of a nagging feeling ourselves that this new pack wasn’t up to the standards required of a DLC pack, and reading your comments confirmed this.

Frameworks and Armors are peculiar entities, and what might look super cool to some, might read as boring to others - and especially in the case of DLC packs, we are learning that more bling tends to be received better. You’re putting down good money for these items, and you want them to stand out - we hear you!

So, in order to make this a DLC worth adding to your collection, we decided to tweak the Weapon Framework, and update the Paintjob. We’ve focused on making the guns stand out a ... Read more

Hello Miners, In case you missed it, we just revealed the new Cosmetic DLC Pack we will release alongside Season 04 - the Decontaminator Pack!

Hello Miners,
We are still making our way through the more than one thousand (!) comments to last week’s Steam Post, containing our very cryptic image.

Why are the dwarves flying? What is that monstrosity they are fighting? What’s in the box? Patience, Miners. All things will be revealed in good time. And soon - you may count on it.

There is one thing we can ... Read more

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
