Deep Rock Galactic Season 03 includes Oktoberfest in-game event

Season 03 of Deep Rock Galactics’ iconic free Performance Pass will arrive on Hoxxes on November 3, 2022, with the console release following two weeks later.

Today, the heads of Deep Rock Galactic Coffee Stain Publishing and Ghost Ship Games officially announced the launch date for Season 03 of its completely free Performance Pass. Starting November 3, 2022, Steam players will have a fresh batch of new content to unlock through the patented progression tree, earning certificates to acquire cosmetics, minerals, and more. For players on Xbox and PlayStation consoles, Season 03 will launch two weeks later on November 17, 2022.

Ghost Ship Games will slowly unveil and tease the next season’s content via weekly streams and their social media channels over the coming months.

Oktoberfest and Double Season XP

As Season 02 draws to a close, management is giving Deep Rock Galactic employees an extra boost to earn those final cosmetics in the form of its upcoming Oktoberfest event. From September 15 (1:00 p.m. CEST) to October 3 (1:00 p.m. CEST), players can complete a lucrative new mission to unlock two new hats to commemorate the festivities, as well as a lucrative payout.

Additionally, the space rig has also been decked out with an appropriate amount of beer and sausage-related paraphernalia, and of course, an incredibly traditional and not at all disgusting sausage-flavored beer will be available at the purchase. Unfortunately, the accompanying crate of beer mugs crashed on the way to the platform. Dwarves will therefore be rewarded with double season XP for collecting these cups from the mines – perfect for those who slack off on the “performance” aspect of the Performance Pass!

Xbox Series X/S Update

Finally, Deep Rock Galactic has been updated and optimized for Xbox Series S and X consoles. With the latest hardware, players can run the game at 120Hz on supported TVs, cave build processes are faster, and the frame rate and performance when encountering a large number of enemies have been improved. Overall, Deep Rock Galactic offers a much smoother experience on current-gen consoles. The game is also available for free to all Game Pass subscribers.

Deep Rock Galactic is available now on Steam, Xbox One, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
