  • Deep Rock Galactic Launches on February 28

    On February 28, Xbox One and PC owners will get to dive deep, shoot a bunch, and destroy the world, almost literally. Deep Rock Galactic is a game where you and up to three additional friends carry out missions on the "most hostile planet ever discovered." Oh. Oh my.

    Your goal is to mine for various gems and metals. You know, dwarf stuff. Along the way, you will have to take out enemies and mine for goods as one of four different classes.

    Enlisted dwarves will be paired with up to three like-minded brethren and sent on missions to the most hostile planet ever discovered, Hoxxes IV, to mine precious gems and metals. Cooperation is essential to your success and, as an interplanetary mining conglomerate, Deep Rock Galactic depends on its employees to take care of each other.

    Players take up arms as one of four classes of badass dwarven miners, each with their own invaluable set of skills and gear. The Driller, the Engineer, the Scout and the Gunner must work together to survive a relentless onslaught of ravenous aliens and escape the procedurally generated caves with their bounty intact.

    “With Deep Rock Galactic, we wanted to create a true co-op experience where teamwork really matters. We're mixing the traditional co-op shooter with all the goodness of huge procedural levels, lots of exploration and mining and all the personality of fantasy dwarves – but in a sci-fi setting,” says Mikkel Martin Pedersen, Game Director/Co-Founder of Ghost Ship Games.

    Deep Rock Galactic first began recruiting brave space mining dwarves when it entered Closed Alpha on Steam in December 2016. Since then, more than ten thousand test-subjects have played the ever-improving Closed-Alpha builds and delivered invaluable feedback to the team. By popular demand, the team have thus far added upgrades, drones, vanity items, a mini-boss, biomes and refrained from fixing the broken barrel physics!

    The game enters into Early Access and Xbox Game Preview on the 28th. There is no word on when the non-Early Access release will happen. Check it out on either the PC via Steam or on the Xbox One.

    Quick TGN E3 2018 Wrap Up

    E3 was last week and I do believe the dust has finally settled. I decided, for my own sanity really, to try to take things a bit slower this year with getting news up from the event. This was...
