Deep Rock Galactic artwork showing off the Space Beach Party 2023 cosmetics

[Update]: Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor is a surprisingly challenging roguelite auto-shooter spin-off.

In order to give everyone an excuse to stay at home and avoid the scorching heat, the Deep Rock Galactic team has now launched the Space Beach Party 2023 event. Much like its predecessor the event brings with it a bunch of summer themed decorations (including water balloons!) for the Space Rig, a couple of silly hats to acquire, as well as doubled seasonal experience points to help you speed through the entirely free Battle Pass.

Speaking of hats, you can grab the Great White Delight pictured above by completing a simple seasonal assignment before the whole event goes away on August 17th. And if you missed last year's festivities, worry not as those hats are also up for grabs through the extra "Last Year’s Fashion" assignment. So if you always wanted to run around with a pink flamingo on your head, consider this your lucky day!

In order to activate the doubled performance bonus you'll need to find a lost shipment of pool floats hiding somewhere within each level. They're not particularly hard to catch, though they can sometimes be hidden in side-caverns or somewhere up high, so do make sure to give the map a quick once-over before you call down the drop pod. After all, it would be a shame to miss out on all that delicious, delicious experience!

That's pretty much everything you need to know! So have fun with the new event, and I'll make sure to let you know once something a bit more substantial arrives.
