Deep Rock Galactic: Rogue Core is a New Roguelite Co-Op Shooter Set in the Deep Rock Galactic Universe

Deep Rock Galactic: Rogue Core will be a separate game from Deep Rock Galactic, despite featuring many similarities with its predecessor.

Developer Ghost Ship Games has released a new trailer, teasing Deep Rock Galactic: Rogue Core. The teaser gives us a look at the game’s story set up, showing off the DRG Reclaimer Vessel “The Ramrod”, which is on a mission to reclaim the core of planet Hoxxes IV.

Much like Deep Rock Galactic, Deep Rock Galactic: Rogue Core will be a co-op first-person shooter. However, in stark difference to its predecessor, Rogue Core will feature a roguelike game structure. Players will start out missions with only a few pieces of equipment, and progressing through runs will allow them to get new upgrades, equipment and abilities.

The Steam store page for Deep Rock Galactic: Rogue Core is live right now, offering a little more detail about the game aside from the teaser. Among other things, the store page features a “living roadmap”, which indicates that the game will be getting a closed alpha launch in Q1 2024, while the Early Access release for the title will happen in November 2024.
