Deep Rock Galactic Patch Notes – November 4, 2021
URGENT COMPANY BRIEFING
_Alright, Miners – listen up! We have confirmation: We are no longer alone out here.
A month or so ago, our deepscans started picking up energy signatures massing on the outer edge of the system. Within a week, automated scout ships penetrated the upper atmosphere of Hoxxes IV and started taking readings. Soon after, they started sending down supplies and construction materials – hectotons of it, across dozens of shuttles. Now, we are seeing full-fledged data collecting facilities being raised down in the caves – OUR caves.
In short, our dominion over Hoxxes is no longer total. Someone else is moving in on company territory._
NEW CONCEPT: SEASONS
With the introduction of a themed Season, several of the new features will only last in their current form while the season is running. Season 01 is currently expected to last for 4 to 5 months, so everybody will get a chance to experience the content. When the season ends, each of the season-related features will change somewhat, but never be truly gone.
In the Space Rig, you will now find a new terminal aptly named the Season Terminal. This is where you can read Management’s all-hands briefing on the recent event, hand in your season-related loot, track your progression in the Performance Pass, and claim your rewards.
Towards the end of the Season, and probably a month in advance, a countdown will be displayed in the Season Terminal, so the end of the season will be known to all. This will also signal the start of the next season.
SEASON 01: PERFORMANCE PASS
In light of this rival incursion, Management has begun a brand-new incentive program to distinguish our most dedicated employees. This is called the Performance Pass and it’s Deep Rock Galactic’s take on a 100% free Battle Pass. Season 01 brings you 100 levels of unlocks, challenges to complete, and bonuses to collect – all completely free.
Performance Points and Season Challenges
Earning Performance Points is how you advance through Season 01’s 100 levels. You earn these simply by completing missions, alongside hefty bonuses paid out for completing Season Challenges.
Your current Season Challenges can be tracked and managed in the Season Terminal. You can at most have three active Challenges at a time, and you will get a new Challenge each day. Most of the Challenges will be completed alongside your regular work in the mines, but one of them requires handing in the hard-to-get Data Rack, which can be obtained by completing the new mission, Industrial Sabotage.
Furthermore, during missions, you may recover Data Cells for even further bonuses. Do so by chasing down a Rival Prospector Drone and destroying it – or find a rival Data Deposit, hack it, and recover the Data Cell inside.
Company Scrips and Cosmetic Tree
Some Season levels grant you rewards directly, while others grant you Scrips. Scrips are Company Credit tokens that let you unlock a single field of your choice on the new and poetically named Cosmetic Tree.
The Season Level rewards and the Cosmetic Tree are packed with brand new Beards, Helmets, Pickaxe Parts, Paintjobs, satchels of Crafting Materials, and fat stacks of cold, hard cash – and to top it off, a brand new Weapon Framework for every gun available.
At Season End
The Performance Pass and the claimable rewards will be available while Season 01 is running. Afterward, any unclaimed cosmetics rewards will go back into the game as random rewards and other yet-to-be-implemented features for the future.
SEASON 01: NEW MISSION “INDUSTRIAL SABOTAGE”
A number of mysterious prospecting facilities have recently been discovered on Hoxxes! The operations appear to be fully automated, and we do not yet know who is behind the incursion. The presence of a Rival Company on Hoxxes is unacceptable.
To complete this dangerous mission, you must locate the rival corporation’s towering Data Vaults, hack the connected Power Stations to take down the impenetrable Force Fields, and face off against the terrifying Caretaker and its minions before making off with the ultimate prize: The rival corp’s encrypted Data Rack!
Before Management lets you loose against our prospecting rivals, you need to prove yourself ready by completing the new assignment, SPEC OPS: SABOTAGE TRAINING. This assignment will be available for any miner that has completed the CONQUER HOXXES assignment. Furthermore, Management advises you to familiarize yourself with the mission details in the Miner’s Manual section before descending into the darkness.
At Season End
During Season 01, this new Industrial Sabotage mission will always be available on the Mission Map. When Season 01 comes to an end, the mission will likely be much less frequent and integrated into the game in a different way.
SEASON 01: NEW MISSION EVENTS
During regular missions, you may encounter the Rival Prospector Drone. The rival company is obviously trying to aggressively expand its operations. You must destroy these drones on sight, and collect their Data Cells.
While exploring the caves, you should also lookout for any Data Deposits left behind by the rival company. Get in close, hack the deposit with your new Hacking Device, and recover the Data Cell inside.
Please make sure to bring back the Data Cells from these encounters, and hand them in at the Season Terminal for a quick Company Scrip bonus. The Data Cells also provide you with a Performance Point bonus, so it doubles up!
At Season End
These new mission events will be active while Season 01 is running, and they will be somewhat frequent. Afterward, they will be much less frequent or even removed.
To help with the fight against this new lethal threat, Management has approved four new Weapon Contracts – which of course includes a full slew of Gear Modifications to buy, and 26 brand new Overclocks to find and unlock. You can get licensed for all four in the usual manner at the Assignment Board, but given the highly advanced nature of these new weapons, you will need to have attained Level 20 for the respective class.
ENGINEER: LOK-1 SMART RIFLE
Take a standard, high-grade assault rifle, bolt a semi-sentient AI Core to the side of it, and rig it up with several sophisticated tracking packages. Arm the resulting abomination with prototype rounds that interface directly with the onboard systems, and you have the aptly named LOK-1 Smart Rifle – a glorious bit of kit any Engineer worth their salt would be happy carrying.
DRILLER: CORROSIVE SLUDGE PUMP
The Corrosive Sludge Pump is what happens when the maintenance staff is left with too much time on their hands. A complicated network of piping, distillation bottles, and safety valves results in a very capable device indeed – lobbing globs of corrosive waste at those you disapprove of has never been so fun!
SCOUT: DRAK-25 PLASMA CARBINE
The DRAK-25 is among the newest additions to the DRG arsenal and is a bit of a technological marvel. Capable of laying down a blistering hail of superheated plasma without hardly ever blowing up in your hands, and comparatively cheap to manufacture! Management was quick to approve and sign off on this design.
GUNNER: “HURRICANE” GUIDED ROCKET SYSTEM
The Hurricane has quickly gotten a reputation for being a very crowd-pleasing weapon – unless we’re talking about the crowd it is being aimed at. It stows a weapons package usually reserved for heavy-duty tripods into something a hearty dwarf can carry with ease and has even been upgraded with sophisticated tracking software.
NEW ENEMIES: RIVAL TECH
The Rival operations are fully automated and fiercely defended by a variety of robotic entities. Reports have confirmed that they are susceptible to small-arms fire but are quite resilient. R&D recommends targeting the less robust vent areas, identifiable by a bright orange glow.
The Patrol Bot is a defensive robot from a Rival Company, with versatile traversal options in combat, covering both ground and air. It shoots a plasma laser from the particle accelerator placed inside its “head” – which is also more vulnerable due to the many vents. Its synthetic exterior makes this a durable, tough enemy, but the firewall protecting its AI software is easy to bypass, making it a perfect target for your state-of-the-art Hacking Device.
The Shredders are small flying robots, that travel in packs and roam Rival Prospecting Facilities looking for intruders. A lone Shredder poses little danger, but together they can shred a dwarf to shreds in shreconds!
R&D reports sightings of these giant structures above our new Rival’s data vaults, hidden behind a giant impenetrable shield. The few miners who have returned alive report that the structure is the Facility Caretaker, an extremely dangerous machine that furiously protects the valuable data hidden underneath it. Bring your strongest arsenal for this beast!
The Burst Turret is protected by an impenetrable barrier, and lies in wait for intruders. They’re set up around Rival Prospecting Facilities to protect the Power Stations that keep the shield around the vault intact. Once its sensors pick up intruder movement, it will lower its barriers and attack!
The Sniper Turret protects the Power Stations that keep the shield around the Data Vault intact. Once an intruder enters a room with a Power Station, these turrets will immediately set their sights on their target, and shoot them with a powerful plasma laser shot.
The Repulsion Turret emits a barrage of Plasma Force Fields, which apply an extreme amount of force to anything it comes into contact with. Although completely immobile, the turret is protected by a barrier when inactive, and the huge amount of Plasma Force Fields it emits can’t be shot through.
A Prospector Drone sent by a Rival Company and programmed for curiosity and thorough work, it researches every nook and cranny around areas of Hoxxes for mining potential. If attacked, it will call for help from its fellow drones, and flee to avoid its precious data being lost in the depths.
NEW MISSION EQUIPMENT: HACKING DEVICE
R&D has been hard at work cracking the rival robots. You now have a handheld hacking device that will let you hack rival patrol bots and make them fight for you. The hacking device will be active when in close proximity to a hackable robot.
NEW COSMETIC DLC: RIVAL TECH PACK
To commemorate the release of Season 01, we will also be releasing a new DLC Pack – aptly named “RIVAL TECH”. The Rival Tech Pack will let you deck out all your guns in theme with our new enemies – no reason to let all those nice bits go to waste, after all!
On top of the set of new unique Weapon Frameworks for all your weapons, the pack comes with a matching Paintjob for your Armors, as well as a Rival Tech Paintjob for all other weapons and your favorite Pickaxe.
EXISTING FRAMEWORKS FOR THE NEW WEAPONS ADDED
All the existing Weapon Frameworks have been updated to include the four new weapons, all of which have been added to the pool of items you can find in the Cargo Crates. Also, if you own the MegaCorp DLC, this has also been updated to include Frameworks for the new weapons.
MORE LOADOUT SLOTS
The update, of course, also includes all the usual under-the-hood improvements and additions – and yes, we heard you, that also means a few more Loadout Slots for you to toy around with! We have added two more Loadout Slots for a total of five. We trust you will spend them wisely.
CALLING THE M.U.L.E. 2.0
When calling Molly, if she isn’t present on the mission, the dwarves will have unique shouts to let you know she is not there. There will also be unique shouts for when Molly is on the way to the Drop Pod.
We have also added an icon next to the portrait of the player who’s calling for the M.U.L.E.
POWER DRILLS WITH ANGLOMETER
We got inspired looking through the community-made mods, and have added an anglometer to the Reinforced Power Drills crosshair.
ENABLED VR PLUGINS
Speaking of modding, we have enabled the SteamVR and OculusVR plugins to allow modders to play with them. Have fun!
Last but not least, a bunch of minor clipping and collision issues on the Space Rig have been fixed.
We have added Slovak and Arabian languages by community requests. As with most other languages, these are community translated and work-in-progress. If you want to contribute to the translation of your own language, then check out our Crowdin project page here. A huge THANK YOU to the hundreds of fans who have contributed so far and have made an extra effort to translate Season 01, so it is ready for launch today!
