Deep Rock Galactic: Rogue Core is a one to four player co-op FPS set in the familiar Deep Rock Galactic universe but offering a new Roguelite gameplay experience. Dwarves equip their phase suits with active powers and arm themselves with a variety of unique weapons before venturing into the great unknown.
After entering the mysterious grayout zone in the deepest depths of Hoxxes IV, there is no turning back for the dwarves without completing their mission. Players fight through multiple procedurally generated levels, retrieving equipment and weapons to expand their arsenal for these missions. Accompanied only by their comrades and a trusty processor drone, they can collect and store a new wonder mineral, expanite, to unlock a wide range of powerful temporary upgrades.
By completing mission tasks and recovering mining sites, players earn ways to research and permanently unlock new recovery weapons, phase suits, and suit modes. Expanding equipment options and experimenting with different setups allows players to tackle the deepest and most dangerous mining sites in the Grayout Zone. All information can be found on the Steam store page.
