[Update]: Deep Rock Galactic's Season 3 - Plaguefall update has added fancy new grenades, enemy variants and mission objectives.

I hope you're in the mood for frenzied robots, frantic screaming and fancy beards, because Deep Rock Galactic's chunky Season 2 update has now arrived. The star attraction this time around is a new event that will task you with hacking a competitor's communications hub, an act that will draw in quite a few murder-bots for you to ruthlessly swat out of the sky!

There's also a brand new mini-boss that is just dying to give you a hug, as well as four new secondary weapons to toy around with. Scout gets a new crossbow, the engineer a heavy 'shard diffractor', the gunner a high-powered pistol, and the driller a submachine gun that looks more like a death-ray than anything else!

As is tradition, the accompanying (and free) Battle Pass has also added a whole bunch of new cosmetics to collect, including things like the aforementioned snazzy new beards, equally fancy hats and an assortment of cool new weapon skins. Best of all, Season 2 brings with it double the usual amount of potential bonuses, so you should be able to score some of the new stuff without too much trouble.

What these glorious beards and weapons look like in action, as well as what the new event is all about, that you can find out through the recently posted developer update. Have a gander, it's quite an informative one:

The good news doesn't end there, however, as the Deep Rock Galactic team has just launched a 50% sale that will last until May 5th. So if you're a fan of co-op shooters, or just the idea of space Dwarves, you should definitely head on over to Steam.

Have fun with the new stuff, and if you're interested in more information about Deep Rock Galactic I'd also welcome you to check out my review.
