What happens if you send dwarves into outer space? Obviously, they’ll find something to mine. That’s the premise of Deep Rock Galactic, which has just been upgraded with its first free post-launch content drop. Update 32 is called Roughnecks at Work, and it features two new mission types, new cosmetic items, and a raft of weapon tweaks to improve the co-op game’s balance.
In On-Site Refining, you and your team of dwarven roughnecks are sent to gather liquid Morkite, which is found in wells scattered throughout the subterranean environment. You’ll head in alongside a remote refinery machine, which you’ll need to link up to the Morkite wells using heavy pipe. The pipelines also serve as rails for dwarves, who are equipped with handy skateboard-type devices to move around quickly from the wells to the central refinery.
The second new mission type is Escort Duty, and as you’ll no doubt guess, it involves escorting a piece of heavy mining equipment called a Drilldozer, which can drill through the outer shell of an Ommoran to reveal its precious inner Heartstone.
