Deep Rock Galactic's roadmap for 2021 includes modding support, controller rebinding, and new mission types along with new weapons and UI improvements. It's a pretty busy year for the game and Ghost Ship, the developer of the game that now has 25 employees from its original six. There's also over 2 million players in the Deep Rock community, which is pretty cool because the game is great and deserves it.

Modding support has been anticipated for a while now, and it looks like it's going to be worth the wait. While it's too bad that modding support will release on Steam only, the rest of the update looks to make up for it. Update 34: Bits N' Pieces will be releasing this April, and will include the aforementioned modding support, a save game profile system, mod categories, and a menu dedicated to modding. At release, the modding probably will not support Steam Workshop, but it may in the future. Other things included in the patch are a balance pass on weapons and overclocks, and controller rebinding so players can rebind their controller buttons however they wish.

The "much bigger" unnamed patch 35 will release in Q3 2021. It will include a new mission type, new weapons, new overclocks, new cosmetics, and UI improvements that "will emphasize giving the information you need at your fingertips", which is good. A new and improved UI is always a good thing. 

There's also a bunch of streams taking place throughout today, which will include a Q&A on the new roadmap and the future of Deep Rock Galactic and the Ghost Ship. Check it out on their official Twitch page. The stream has been going for about five hours now, so check it out while you can.
