[Update]: The latest DRG update has now heavily reworked the perk system, and so far the new one seems to be a lot better.

Deep Rock Galactic is set to release in full in the second quarter of 2020, and in order to get everything ready for launch, the developers are now focusing their efforts on polishing existing features, quality-of-life changes, as well as some much-needed additions. Unsurprisingly, the newly released Update 27 brings with it exactly that.

There is now a brand new machine event with variable (and incredibly deadly) attachments to contend with, a significantly beefed up version of the Glyphid Praetorian called the Gylphid Oppressor, a bunch of minor but still quite welcome animations improvements, as well as a long-requested community feature - loadouts. Perhaps most importantly of all, Update 27 has given the Dwarves the ability to freely show off their glorious beards even while wearing armor!

You can get a pretty good idea of how all of this works, as well as how deadly the two new enemies might be, through the recently posted "Status Report" video. Have a gander, it's a pretty fun one:

On the other hand, if you really want to dive into everything Update 27 has to offer, you can read the full patch notes over at Steam. Have fun, and as the Dwarves say - rock and stone, to the bone!
