“Working with Skybound on creating a Special Edition for Deep Rock Galactic on PS5 has been amazing. When we started talking to them we recognized the same creator-driven focus and care for the fans that we have brought to Deep Rock Galactic ever since the beginning. We all agreed early on that this version would have to be something special, which is why we have crammed as much into this Special Edition as we could. We are excited that new fans and old alike will be able to own a physical version of the game on PS5.” said Mikkel Martin Pedersen, Game Director on Deep Rock Galactic.
