The Deep Rock Galactic roadmap has been updated with details on the upcoming Season 2 content, and that's not all -- a Deep Rock Galactic PS4 and PS5 release is arriving early next year.

Deep Rock Galactic has been releasing a steady stream of new content for players old and new alike such as the addition of new biomes & enemies earlier this year and enhanced modding support a few months later. Most recently, it launched Season 01 early last month; now, Ghost Ship Games has updated the Deep Rock Galactic roadmap and provided some details about what we can expect to see in Season 02.

What's New in the Deep Rock Galactic Roadmap?

The first item of note on the updated Deep Rock Galactic roadmap is the return of the yearly Yuletide celebration. This event kicks off on December 14, 2021, and more details will be posted as we get closer to that date.

 
 

After that, the next major event will be the annual celebration of Deep Rock Galactic's launch in February 2018. This birthday celebration will take place on the last weekend of February 2022 (February 26-27) and will "most likely" include a funny hat. As with the Yuletide celebration, more concrete details will be provided as the game's birthday approaches.

Looking further into 2022, the Season 02 launch is loosely planned for sometime between March and April 2022; as always, Steam will get this update first and the console versions will get the update a few weeks later. Here are some of the things on the way:

 
 
  • 4 new Secondary Weapons -- one for each Class
    • The "full usual package" of Mods, Overclocks, Assignments, and unlockable Weapon Frames
  • A brand-new Performance Pass
    • New Season Events tied into the Performance Pass
    • This new Performance Pass will pick up from where the last one left off
  • Various unspecified quality-of-life improvements, UI improvements, updates, and tweaks
  • A new cosmetic DLC pack matching Season 02's theme

Several players have raised concerns about the Season 01 Performance Pass and missing out on cosmetics. Unfortunately, there are "a whole bunch of design problems" with this route and Ghost Ship Games says it's unlikely to implement such a feature at this time. That means that it's unlikely you'll be able to unlock previous Performance Pass content if you miss it the first time around.

Beyond that, there's the matter of Season 03. Ghost Ship Games are currently targeting a Q3 2022 release -- that means that it is expected to arrive sometime between July 1, 2022, and September 30, 2022.

Finally, there is one more surprise for fans in the Deep Rock Galactic roadmap -- a Kickstarter campaign for Deep Rock Galactic: The Board Game will be launching sometime in 2022. A specific date has not yet been announced, but the devs say that it will be "sooner rather than later." You can read about all of the goodies on the Deep Rock Galactic roadmap announcement on Steam.

Deep Rock Galactic PS4 and PS5 Release Confirmed

Season 02 content and an upcoming board game weren't the only surprises announced in the Deep Rock Galactic roadmap. Ghost Ship Games also has some happy news for console players -- the Deep Rock Galactic PS4 and PS5 versions are arriving early next year.

The Deep Rock Galactic PlayStation launch will include all of the content in the latest version of the game along with the Season 01 features and Performance Pass. Unfortunately, cross-play between Steam and Xbox will not be included, but cross-generation play between PS4 and PS5 will be available; Ghost Ship Games is looking into how best to implement cross-play between other platforms.

When is the Deep Rock Galactic PS4 and PS5 Release Date?

The Deep Rock Galactic PS4 and PS5 release date will be sometime in January 2022; a more specific release date has not yet been announced.

For now, there's plenty of fun new content on the way for Deep Rock Galactic. If you haven't yet jumped into this great co-op game, you can buy Deep Rock Galactic for PC and Xbox for $29.99 or your regional equivalent via its official website; you can also get access to the game with an Xbox Game Pass membership.
