Deep Rock Galactic has added modding support for Steam players, a long awaited and highly anticipated feature from the community. Ghost Ship Games has partnered with Mod.io to bring a fully comprehensive modding interface. In addition, Ghost Ship has confirmed Update 35 will be its biggest update ever, sharing a few teasers for what is coming.
After it was initially announced earlier this year, Ghost Ship Games has been working with the community to make sure that every element of the system ensures that modding is implemented fairly for everyone from the most hardcore, to casual players of the game.
Ghost Ship Games has released a Steam post here, which outlines their process with supporting mods in Deep Rock Galactic, and why Mod.io has been the ideal partner to get this right for the community.
This latest update, titled Update 34.5, includes the following features:
- Easy mod browsing and installation through the Mod.io platform, including three categories of mods, which determine whether players can receive regular progression rewards on modded servers.
- Sandbox, Approved and Verified will all be clearly tagged, and have a detailed description of each category and what they entail
- Clear tags for modded servers so players will clearly know if a server is using mods, and which mods it’s using
- This interface will also include a system for handling activation and deactivation mods easily and quickly, so players don’t need to worry about deactivating Approved mods when trying to join a server that doesn’t have them installed.
- In addition, if players want to join a modded server, but don’t have those mods installed, they will be automatically downloaded
Update 35 will be the largest update the game’s received to date:
The following new weapons are confirmed:
The LOK-1 Smart Rifle
The Corrosive Sludge Pump
The ‘Hurricane’ Guided Rocket System
The DRAK-25 Plasma Carbine
