Season 05: Drilling Deeper will be the fifth season of Deep Rock Galactic.


Miners! Strap yourselves in, because Deep Rock Galactic is taking a pickaxe to the very heart of Hoxxes! That's right, in Season 05: Operation: Hot Rocks, we're sending you straight for the CORE!

Management has detected a new stone unlike anything we've seen before - Core Stones. These scorching hot bad boys hold the potential to revolutionize fuel production. The only catch? They're nestled deep within the planet's molten core, a place even hotter than your Drillers' flamethrowers (and let's face it, that's saying something).

Prepare for scorching temperatures, volatile geysers, and a whole new breed of heat-resistant nasties guarding these Core Stones.

Hoxxes ain't for the faint of heart. This ain't your average mining mission. This is Operation: Hot Rocks, and only the toughest, most heat-resistant miners need apply. So grab your flame retardant beard braids, crank up the cooling systems, and get ready to drill like you've never drilled before! Rock and Stone!


Added 12 new Overclocks (one for each primary weapon), plus one rework of an existing Overclock.
