Deep Rock Galactic has finally arrived on PlayStation after previously launching on both PC and Xbox systems. It is currently one of the three games available to download this month as part of Sony’s PlayStation Plus line-up. It is joined by Dirt 5 and Persona 5 Strikers.

The PlayStation version of this space dwarf co-op shooter has some extra bells and whistles compared to the PC and Xbox versions currently available. On PS5, it has been confirmed that the DualSense’s touchpad can be used to control the Terrain Scanner tool. Meanwhile, the gamepad’s built-in speakers will bark orders at players from Mission Control.

We were thoroughly impressed with the game when it launched back in mid 2020, saying:

“Ooh, aah, that’s how it always starts, then later there’s running and screaming. Deep Rock Galactic can be deceptively easy going at times, right up until the swarms of bugs come crawling out of the inky darkness to besiege you and your friends. Who knew space dwarf mining could be so fun?”

Of course, since then the game has gone on to receive numerous updates. Very recently, new weapons and a new game mode were added to Deep Rock Galactic alongside Ghost Ship’s take on the popular battle pass system.
