Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our primary focus is on crafting an awesome co-op experience, so the sooner we can get this game into the hands of the players, the better. This type of game would be extremely difficult to develop in a vacuum, so the players will be an invaluable part of the process. Simply by playing the game and taking part in the development discussion, they will provide us with invaluable assistance while we flesh out the full thing, add new features, and move further into things like balancing and feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are estimating somewhere between 1 or 2 years development before we are ready to move out of Early Access. It is practically impossible for us to give a reliable estimate at this point, however - we have so many ideas on how to improve and expand upon the game, and more come up all the time.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“At first, the Early Access version of the game will focus on the Core Game Loop - getting the basics right. The plan for the full version is to add and expand on things like:

  • More game modes
  • Much more varied cave systems, and actual biomes within them
  • Many more tools, gadgets, and equipment
  • More character classes, each with access to their own unique gear
  • A deep and meaningful Meta game

More, more, more! :D”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have a fully playable (and fun!) version up and running, which supports from 1 to 4 players. For now, our focus is on the core game experience: Teaming up as badass dwarves, exploring procedurally generated cave systems, fighting monsters, and digging gold. The current level of variation in the caves is somewhat limited as we flesh out the systems, build assets, and come up with better ways to do things, but we have grand plans for it.

By purchasing the Early Access version, you will have access to:
  • Single-player exploration mode
  • Multiplayer exploration mode for 1-4 players
  • 4 highly unique dwarf classes with individual play styles
  • Procedurally generated cavesystems with endless variation
  • Loads of high-octane co-op shooting and exploration gameplay

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We expect the price for the full release of Deep Rock Galactic to be higher than the price for Early Access, and we plan to gradually raise the price as we implement new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We're a team of veteran developers, and have all spent years on productions you weren't allowed to talk about until the game was released. So right from the outset it was decided that Deep Rock Galactic should be a product of OPEN development.

We want to foster a community that will encourage people to interact directly with us, ensure that their feedback is listened to and considered properly, and to produce the very best co-op experience we can. This will happen through a number of channels, primary of which are the Steam community forums, Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit. While we cannot in any way guarantee that all suggestions will become part of the game, we will absolutely strive for listening to and acknowledging any and all feedback.

Reviews

“Deep Rock Galactic is the best new co-op shooter on Steam and Xbox One”
Polygon

“Deep Rock Galactic is a riot, it turns out. A heady cocktail of Left 4 Dead and Minecraft in which capitalism and facial hair reign supreme.”
PCGamesN

“The team at Ghost Ship already put together an amazing and satisfying experience that stands shoulder to shoulder with the best co-op titles out there.”
GameWatcher

About This Game

4-PLAYER CO-OP

Work together as a team to dig, explore, and fight your way through a massive cave system filled with hordes of deadly enemies and valuable resources. You will need to rely on your teammates if you want to survive the most hostile cave systems in the galaxy!

4 UNIQUE CLASSES

Pick the right class for the job. Mow through enemies as the Gunner, scout ahead and light up the caves as the Scout, chew through solid rock as the Driller, or support the team with defensive structures and turrets as the Engineer.


FULLY DESTRUCTIBLE ENVIRONMENTS

Destroy everything around you to reach your goal. There is no set path so you can complete your mission your way. Drill straight down to your objective or build an intricate network of paths to explore your surroundings -- the choice is yours. But proceed with caution, you don’t want to stumble into an alien swarm unprepared!

PROCEDURALLY GENERATED CAVE NETWORK

Explore a network of procedurally generated cave systems filled with enemies to fight and riches to collect. There’s always something new to discover and no two playthroughs are alike.


HIGH-TECH GADGETS AND WEAPONS

Dwarves know what they need to bring to get the job done. This means the most powerful weapons and the most advanced gadgets around - flamethrowers, gatling guns, portable platform launchers, and much, much more.

LIGHT YOUR PATH

The underground caves are dark and full of terrors. You will need to bring your own lights if you want to illuminate these pitch-black caverns.
