Ghost Ship and Coffee Stain have revealed new details about Deep Rock Galactic Season 4. Officially titled "Critical Corruption", the co-op miner-shooter's fourth season will bring new enemies, a new seasonal event, and new enemy variants, as well as more gear to get to grips with and lots of other stuff besides.

Following on from October's Plaguefall season, Critical Corruption sees the intrepid dwarves of Deep Rock Galactic once again taking the fight to the ever-evolving Lithophage. This time, though, the world of Hoxxes itself is also throwing up new horrors for you and your dwarven crew to contend with. Take a look at the Deep Rock Galactic Season 4 trailer to see what's waiting for you in the tunnels (and to hear the honeyed tones of the narrator).

First up, the new Rockpox Corruptor event will see the plague hearts you collected during Plaguefall transforming into monstrous enemies to battle. Taking them down will give you Scrip that you can spend in Deep Rock Galactic's Performance Pass, where you'll find a new Infected Weapon Framework and other goodies.

New enemies and enemy variants are also coming to Deep Rock Galactic in Season 4. The scorpion-like Glyphid Stingtail and the toxic Glyphid Septic Spreader should give you a run for your money, and new Rockpox variants of enemies like Breeders, Bombers, and Spitters are also stalking the tunnels of Hoxxes.

Luckily, you'll be able to take advantage of new gear like the Jet Boots to battle them, and if you don't feel like using the Jet Boots to fight your enemies, you can also play the Jetty Boot arcade machine challenge for a break from monster-slaying. That's all in addition to the new Randoweisser beer, which randomizes your equipment and cosmetics for a mission, and more besides.

You can see a full rundown of all the content heading to Deep Rock Galactic in Season 4 right here on SteamDeep Rock Galactic Season 4 lands on June 15th, and you can pick the game up right now on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox.
