Deep Rock Galactic creators Ghost Ship Games announced Season 2 back in December 2021. A few months later, a six-minute trailer for a free Season Pass has finally appeared.
Via the roadmap update released in December, players learned that Deep Rock Galactic Season 2 could be expected between March and April of this year, and here we are, Season 2: Rival Escalation will be live for Steam players on April 28th walk. and May 5th for those using Xbox and PlayStation.
As expected, Season 2 follows Rival Incursion and your mining operations are still being disrupted by your rivals. So Season 2 will oversee you continuing to battle them as you try to outdo each other. However, the rivals seem to have no plans to go down easily, and you must target their new communications, robotic hordes, and a terrifying new foe this season.
To counter your rivals’ increased efforts, the update grants you access to a secondary weapon that will help you counter them, which will also have its own upgrade tree.
Additionally, season event bonuses have roughly doubled, and there is a new season challenge for players to engage in. As if that wasn’t enough to get you ready, there will be a free seasonal Battle Pass offering various unique cosmetics. That includes resources, wraps, and beards, and who wouldn’t want their miner to sport an epic beard?
For those who haven’t completed Season 1 yet, there’s no race against time. All cosmetics that have yet to be unlocked will be moved into Season 2 and can be found through looting cargo crates and more. As if it wasn’t nice enough that all major in-game content is free, Phazyonite has been added as a currency in the in-game shop. Phazyonite can be collected from in-game mines, and if you save up enough you can also pick up a few items from the shop.
If you have the cash to spare, there’s now paid DLC too. The Robot Rebellion Pack lets you show off your past accomplishments adorned with outfits inspired by last season’s rivals.
Did I mention that now whenever you fail a mission, you’re brought back to base in a doctor’s coat? I didn’t know I needed this, but now I do. What are you most looking forward to in Season 2 of Deep Rock Galactic?
