Deep Rock Galactic artwork for the new Octoberfest 2022 event and cosmetics

[Update #2]: Deep Rock Galactic devs have shared an infographic with some truly impressive stats for 2022.

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

Deep Rock Galactic's chunky Season 3 update will be launching on November 3rd for PC, while consoles will be getting it after a small delay, on November 17th. So in order to help pass the time until the update arrives, the Deep Rock Galactic team has now unleashed the Oktoberfest 2022 event!

As you might imagine from the name alone, Oktoberfest brings with it an assortment of beer and sausage related paraphernalia, as well as lucrative new missions to undertake. The big reward at the end, as is tradition, is going to be a pair of garish, oversized and completely ridiculous hats - the perfect headgear to use while exploding your way through hordes of bugs!

The Oktoberfest event has also doubled the amount of seasonal experience you can earn, though there is a bit of a catch. Rather than being permanently active, you'll need to first find a shipment of Best Wurst Beer mugs somewhere in the mission in order to double up on you experience gains.

Don't worry if you miss out on a few crates as you'll have about three weeks to level up and collect the new cosmetics. More specifically, the Octoberfest event will be ending at 1pm CEST on October 3rd, 2022.

You can learn more about the event, as well as Deep Rock Galactic in general, over at Steam. Rock and stone!
