Deep Rock Galactic's seasonal updates are bound to continue throughout 2022 and beyond, following the success of its first two seasons. A steady flow of content has given the multiplayer shooter a dedicated, active playerbase, which is wondering what the Season 3 Plaguefall start and end dates might be.
Deep Rock Galactic's Season 3 introduces a new theme, different explosive devices to use while mining your way through its procedurally-generated levels, and more. Read on below for all the details we know so far, including when the third season's start and end date might occur.
Deep Rock Galactic Season 3 Plaguefall Start Date
Deep Rock Galactic's Season 3 is currently in development, its start date being initially confirmed to occur at some point in Q4 2022.
Developer Ghost Ship Games plans to keep the length of seasons somewhere between 4 and 6 months, and has now confirmed that the third season is set to start on November 3 for PC and November 17 for consoles.
This means that Deep Rock Galactic's Season 3 end date will likely occur somewhere between February 2023 and April 2023.
- Deep Rock Galactic Season 3 Plaguefall start date: November 3, 2022 (PC)/November 17, 2022 (consoles)
- Deep Rock Galactic Season 3 Plaguefall end date: Between March 2023 and May 2023
It's worth keeping in mind that plans can change as development progresses and these dates could shift, so we'll only know for sure when they're officially confirmed.
Deep Rock Galactic Season 3 Content
Deep Rock Galactic's Season 3 introduces a new theme that sees a rogue comet passing by Hoxxes IV, shedding meteorites which carry with them different forms of rock pox, endangering the planet's ecosystem.
Meteor strikes occur during normal missions, attracting the local wildlife. You must link up rock cracker modules sent from the space rig to the fallen meteorite before it can spread the plague.
The plague hearts inside are retrievable and valued by your employer. Season 3 also introduces the Litophage Outbreak warning to certain areas of the map, marking areas infected by the plague that players need to clear using special tools.
You'll fight plagued wildlife and need to watch your step, as the plague isn't too fond of your attempts to get rid of it.
The dwarves' arsenal is getting a third, more explosive refresh, in the shape of new grenades, one for each playable class.
Deep Rock Galactic Season 3 Grenades
- Scout - Voltaic Stun Sweeper
- Driller - Springloaded Ripper
- Engineer - Shredder Swarm
- Gunner - Tactical Leadburster
A new performance pass is also confirmed, introducing new cosmetics to be unlocked as you progress along its track. A new cosmetic tree is on the way, too.
The new season will be accompanied by the Biohazard Pack, a premium cosmetic DLC that, like those of its predecessors introduces new armor frameworks and several new paintjobs, this time sharing a light blue theme.
That's what you need to know about Deep Rock Galactic Season 3's content as well as its start and end dates.
At least two more seasons are confirmed for 2023, so it certainly doesn't look like content for DRG will stop anytime soon.
