Deep Rock Galactic: Season 3 - Plaguefall official artwork and logo for the update

[Update #2]: Deep Rock Galactic's Season 4: Critical Corruption is coming June 15th with jetpacks, new enemies and arcade games.

[Update]: Deep Rock Galactic devs have shared an infographic with some truly impressive stats for 2022.

If you ever wanted to give the co-op focused Deep Rock Galactic a try, this would be the perfect time to do so. Not only is it ~67% off on Steam until November 17th, but the freshly released Season 3 - Plaguefall has also brought with it a whole bunch of new toys and objectives to mess around with.

For example, each of the four classes has received a powerful and ridiculously over-the-top grenade, the funniest of which is the Gunner's Tactical Leadburster as it's essentially a small machine gun turret masquerading as a grenade! True to its name, the Plaguefall update has also added new events and mission objectives centered around purging the highly infectious Rockpox plague so you can get back to the all-important business of earning heaps of money for the company.

Unsurprising, this won't be a walk in the park as you'll have to contend with both the normal bugs that are upset with you demolishing their homes, as well as the Rockpox infected variants which are incredibly resilient to damage. The good news is that you can deal with them permanently by hitting the Rockpox growths on their bodies, though as you might imagine, doing so in the middle of a hectic firefight isn't always going to be easy.

Much like its predecessors, Season 3 - Plaguefall has also added a free Performance Pass for everyone to enjoy. By progressing through its 100 levels you can unlock all sorts of cosmetics for your characters - everything from snazzy beards to silly hats. Best of all, even if you don't have the time to get everything right now, all of the new items will be added to the general loot pool after the season is over so nothing is ever truly going away!

What all of this looks like in action, that you can check out through the developer-guided trailer below. Have a gander:

Once the next big update goes live, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, have fun with the new mission objectives and, if you're new, don't forget to spam "ROCK AND STONE!" at every opportunity. It's the local custom, after all!
