Deep Rock Galactic is a first-person mining adventure and shooter that has become quite popular over the past year or so. Burrowing into a cave network among a team of dwarven warriors isn't your typical setup for a mining operation, especially when armed with flamethrowers and an abundance of gadgets. However, the gameplay loop is quite addictive so it keeps players coming back for more.
Deep Rock Galactic launched in Xbox Game Preview a while back, but now it's a 1.0 release. There are a couple of upgrade packs available as well if you want to enhance your experience when it comes to cosmetics, mostly. The title still costs $30 so be sure to pick it up if you're interested.
The game also supports Xbox One X and looks fantastic on a 4K display.
