A new Deep Rock Galactic update is out now for both PS4 and PS5 versions of the game. Patch 1.08 makes a number of changes in response to feedback, introducing a much-requested feature by the player community.



Deep Rock Galactic update 1.08 is ready to download on PlayStation consoles. Developer Ghost Ship Games has flipped a switch, allowing miners to import their PS4 save systems to the PS5 version.

This is great news for those fans who have picked up Sony’s shiny new console since Deep Rock Galactic launched on PlayStation systems earlier this year. With so much content and upgrades tied to your career progress, being able to seamlessly transfer that between generations is a massive help.

Deep Rock Galactic Update 1.08 Patch Notes

  • Added a save backup system that is available in Options-> Save Game -> Restore Save
  • Implemented support for transferring save games from PS4 to PS5, this can also be accessed in Options-> Save Game -> Restore Save
  • A warning will now be shown if you are in the possession of a higher progress backup save then the currently loaded one when entering the main menu

Deep Rock Galactic has snagged a whopping 6 million new players following its PlayStation release, thanks to the game launching straight into January’s collection of free PlayStation Plus games for PS5 and PS4. That’s a huge number of new players and sees the game now stand at a lifetime total of 10 million players after 3 million sales.

Deep Rock Galactic is a great co-op game in which space dwarves head down to subterranean caverns on an alien world and fight off alien bugs while searching valuable minerals. It comes with a chunky aesthetic that really works for the sometimes claustrophobic action and is a good bit of fun when you have a crew of buddies.

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?

With more seasons and contents in the pipeline, we can’t wait to see how the game evolves in the coming year.
