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.
Today, Coffee Stain Publishing and Ghost Ship Games announced Update 28. Update 28 should launch on Steam on January 30, but it's unclear if it's coming to Xbox One at the same time. It'll not only overhaul the perk system, but also tweak weapon skins and much more. You can read about the main features below.
That's about it for this update, but in the future, the developer wants to make it easier for newcomers to enjoy the title. In-depth tutorials will be added to make the process smoother.
