Anyone who has played Dwarf Fortress knows that dwarves love mining. And now you can do it, in space. Deep Rock Galactic is a new and unique game that takes resource gathering, combat and being a dwarf to new heights. You get given various tasks to complete, and must finish them by gathering ores, researching tech and other goals. Then, you can explore the depths of a rocky asteroid or planet, delving to your heart’s content. And that’s where the fun begins.
Players can even join in on the fun of space mining with friends and random other players. The multiplayer section has full voice chat, making in-game comms much simpler than without it. But sometimes, you might want to be too talkative. Here’s how you can mute players in Deep Rock Galactic to reduce the chatter.
