[Update #2]: Deep Rock Galactic's massive mod support update has now been unleashed!

[Update]: Deep Rock Galactic has now added elite enemies, a ton of balance changes, and improved gunplay. 

Continuing with the excellent support they have provided so far, the Deep Rock Galactic team have just announced the next major update, humbly titled Modest Expectations. This one will bring with it greatly improved mod support and the ability to filter modded content in-game, as well as the long-awaited weapon rebalance that will hopefully make some of the underpowered weapons feel fun and exciting to use again.

In order to provide a target-rich environment for testing all of these weapon changes, the Modest Expectations update will also be adding elite enemies. These variants are tougher, faster and more dangerous, and will randomly appear on Hazard Level 2 and above. How exactly all of this will translate into actual gameplay, however, that still remains to be seen.

If you need even more of a challenge, it's also worth mentioning that Modest Expectations will add Double Warning missions. In other words, missions that have two negative modifiers for you and your team to struggle against, with the end-reward being greatly increased currency and experience rewards. Pretty risky, but if you can handle it, also a great way to get some much-needed minerals!

Once the full patch notes get released I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a little bit more about the Modest Expectations update over at Steam. Rock and stone!
