Deep Rock Galactic

Ghost Ship Games has announced the first major post-launch Deep Rock Galactic update, and it includes two new mission types: Escort Duty and On-site Refining.

Escort Duty has players in a "heavily combat-focused mission" where players will have to find the Ommoran Heartstone with a Drilldozer that has to make it through the Ommoran. The Drilldozer will land a safe distance and then hone in on the Ommoran. Basically, players are to guard it and keep it fueled as it digs toward the objective.

On-site Refining is a mission where players will have to go find Liquid Morkite wells and hook them to the orbital-insertion industrial Pumpjacks. Then they have to connect them to the refinery by building huge pipelines to start pumping the deposits. 

There's also a new DLC pack available: Roughneck Pack, which is available for $7.99. It has 4 unique suits of armor, one for each class, a unique helmet with two variants, a new Roughneck Weapon Paintjob matching the heavy-duty armors, a new match Paintjob for Bosco, and a new Paintjob for the Pickaxe. All of the contents of the pack are cosmetic only, so if you don't particularly care for cosmetics then you can safely ignore this DLC pack.

As seen in the video above, players can now randomize their wardrobe, either By category or by the Full Outfit. You may have a set look that's getting old, so now is a great time to randomize your look and see what you come up with.

Deep Rock Galactic is available on PC and Xbox One. It can be found on Steam for $29.99.
