    Bosco makes solo much more enjoyable and you can usually match make and what not.

    I play 50/50 solo/party. It’s still fun solo.

    Roadmap Update
    Roadmap Update
    Update 29 in March, 1.0 launch info and beyond
    Hello Miners!


    As promised yesterday, we have an updated Roadmap for you, and it should hopefully help answer most of the burning questions you might have!

    Right now, we're laser-focused on getting Deep Rock Galactic ready for the actual 1.0 launch sometime during Q2 2020. During this time, we'll be revisiting old systems in need of some well-deserved love, as well getting the game polished to a mirror shine. Update 28 started a lot of this, with the much-discussed Perk Rework, as well as the first batch of improvements to the Space Rig and its overall layout. And with the separation of Weapon Skins into Paintjobs and Frameworks, we also gave all Dwarves many more options in terms of expressing their personality through the looks of their weapons. These are key themes that you will continue seeing as we get the game prepared for 1.0.



    Before we're ready to hit the big switch and launch 1.0, we will squeeze in one more update - Update 29. It will feature a lot of under-the-hood optimization and improvements, but more visibly it will see more work done to the Space Rig, a much needed graphical overhaul of the trusty old Drop Pod, and a full visual customization system for your pickaxes. AND, hallelujah, we're finally getting in proper item icons for all your phat lewt!

    Update 29 will also bring a new and improved Greenbeard experience, with a brand new tutorial flow, and handy contextual hints. And of interest for any dwarf regardless of experience, we will also see the introduction of the Miner's Manual - an ingame repository of information about all kinds of Deep Rock Galactic related things.

    And finally, Update 29 will also include another Weapon Balance pass, touching on many of the issues both we and yourselves have brought up regarding certain weapons.

    After 29, we will be officially heading into launch. The Launch Update will not introduce any major new features, but it will still include some pretty tasty things. Apart from a whole lot more bugfixes and optimizations, it will expand the game's soundtrack with almost an hour more of synthy goodness, and it will enable a whole bunch of new Promotion Ranks and associated rewards.

    And beyond that - well - depending on the reception of the game upon launch, the sky is more or less the limit. We have a stack of new things we'd like in the game stretching almost to our ceiling, based both on our own wishes and those voiced by our frankly awesome fanbase. The work you're putting in to assist us in making DRG the best game it can
    be remains absolutely priceless.

    One thing we KNOW we will focus on right after launch, however, is a return to the real meat and bones of the gameplay. We've devoted a ton of necessary work on fleshing out the game's surrounding systems for a long time now, but it's high time we turn our eyes back on the caves themselves. You can at the very least expect more Mission Types after launch, since that's something we rate very very highly on our list of wishes. And once we know a bit more, we will of course update you guys in our usual ways - blog posts, roadmaps, and so forth.

    So until then, keep the bullets flying, the blood and ideas flowing, and we shall get back to you again very soon!

    Rock and Stone!

    We're in the countdown to release.

    This is on sale and I'm tempted to buy it. Is it decent to play solo, or best experienced in coop? Sometimes if I don't have buddies on I still like to play these games solo if it's not too much of a hair pulling experience.

    @Reddaye Why not just try it. It's a free weekend on steam.

    I actually didn't know it was free to play this weekend until after I posted. I had only gotten an email that it was on sale.

    Thanks for mentioning it, I do believe I'll give it a whirl. :biggrin:

    Glad to see they are re-working the tutorial. I didn't think it did a good enough job when I started. The manual might help this a lot as well.

    Hope 1.0 launch is successful. I'd love to see new mission types, additional customization's for armor and weapons, as well as limited use items. Just like the BET-C, I'd love to see a limited ammo super mini gun, laser cannon's, rocket launchers, and such. Either have them laying around or find a call down button that is single use.

    And after trying the game for a few hours. Not my thing. I really don't like the mining part (once I'm close enough to a rockface to mine I lose all sense of scale and direction). Would probably have liked it more as a VR or "over-the-shoulder" perspective.

    I finally got my brother to play a game of this. For some reason he really wanted to use a controller (he loves controllers) so I sat there with the controller mapping on my phone while guiding him online.

    We failed a Lvl 2 mission because the Escape Pod was unusually far away and he got motion sickness during the dash, but he still enjoyed it.

    I got him to play something that's not Overwatch!*

    You could send Bosco to do all the mining. Get it the faster mining skill and it’s way faster than a player.

    Man, leveling up a new class is kind of painful once you're used to playing a high level scout all the time.

    It would be nice to get an exp boost for other classes once you prestige one.

    But since they play pretty differently I appreciate needing to level up each one.

    Unlike Vermintide 2.

    Yeah while painful, it's a different kind of fun. Figuring out how to best play another class is interesting. The scout is just so good solo, zipping around for secondary objectives and having super flares. Trying to level the engineer right now and his PGL hits like a wet noodle. Also takes forever to build platforms to get to 1 secondary objective. But comboing his lure with turret has been working well and his shotgun is pretty good.

    Unlike Vermintide 2.

    The vermintide characters had vastly different play styles. The grinding process just vastly overstayed its welcome and character strength was too heavily tied to level.

    Once you have the hang of the game, you can easily jump into haz 3 or 4 with a brand new level 1 dwarf. You can't really do the same in vermintide.

    What upgrades do folks grab for the Engineer? Do you go armor tear on the shotgun and CC on the GL? or vice versa? For the turret I've been going max ammo pretty much. But the AP option seems nice since they waste ammo on praetorians right now.

    For the turret I like single turret, full damage spec w/ armor piercing . & AOE Size and damage for the GL. Haven't used the shotgun in forever since i unlocked the SMG though so I have no idea there.

    Update 29! Lots of cool things, cosmetics on pick axe and armor. Some much needed buffs for some weapons (we'll see how well they did). I'm hoping the SMG buffs are good, leveling up an engineer I really like it but it's inaccurate as hell lol.

    That is a good change, though I originally chalked it up to the base gun model having a second hand grip that the engi refused to use.

    :lol:

    I'll have to check this out today.

    Edit: COSMETICS HAVE A PREVIEW ICON NOW!

    Hell yes! No more guessing if this forge item is good or not!

    I just promoted my first character a few days ago. Been playing this a lot with some friends, we are really enjoying it. We did our first deep dive and almost got the 45 minute completion.

    Also really looking forward to the new updates. Gonna hope on after work.

    Tested out my engineer. Boy, that's like night and day. The SMG is now a proper long range weapon. With the accuracy mod, short bursts were pretty straight on, which is great. The Breach Cutter... man they might have gone too far the other way now lol. With full damage and triple line, 1 shot kills a predator coming at you. If you hit it from the side it takes 2 shots.

    Other things I noticed:

    1) they removed mods from my weapons and did not refund me materials, which kind of sucked. I was already low on some minerals.
    2) New UI stuff is great. When shocked a large icon comes up like when your on fire or frozen.
    3) Love the new dialog lines. Had one when my steeve died haha.
    4) I think they may have re-balanced the difficult level? Hard to tell in 1 mission, but I had more Grunt Guard's and more Glyphids in general. But hardly any praetorian on Hazard 2. Only praetorian's showed up when I was waiting for extraction.
    5) Love the new cosmetic interface.

    Main complaint is even on 100% mouse sensitivity, aiming feels sluggish unless I turn up the sensitivity setting on my mouse.

    I know I got some amount of refunds from stuff and could buy a few more.

    Needed to slot in some upgrades on some weapons for what has changed.

    Me when I don't pick up Dark Morkite beer and each phase of the Deep Dive has morkite.

    I really have to salute them with the voice call outs cause the chaos of combat and just running around I don't always know if my stuff has recharged or reloaded from the perk so the latest update has fixed that.

    They also are doing a survey with about 3 questions that can be accessed in game so help them collect info.
