New MK6 Armor Set

After six years of trials, R&D has officially cleared the new MK6 Armor Set for limited field testing. And as part of this Anniversary celebration, you’ll have the unique opportunity to earn this cutting-edge new armor, months ahead of schedule!

The MK6 Armor Experimental Trials assignment will give you permanent access to the MK6 suit for all four classes.

This assignment is time-limited, however – if you don’t complete it by the time the celebration ends, you won’t be able to snag the MK6 armor until it rolls out for general release in Season 05! At that point, it'll become available in the Accessory Shop, like the other armors.

New Year Six Party Hat

A good party requires party hats. And a party hat requires an assignment, because Deep Rock Galactic is a business, not a charity. Complete the Anniversary Bonus assignment, and you’ll unlock the delightfully wobbly Party Hat - Year Six balloon top hat. As with all our anniversary hats, this one is a rare time-limited opportunity.

Double Experience

As usual, you’ll have the opportunity to earn a Double Performance Pass Bonus! Collect the glittering Year 6 Anniversary Trophy while you’re down in the caves, and your whole crew will earn double experience for that mission.

New 'Event Countdown' Monitor

We’re adding a little monitor over by the Assignment Board that displays a countdown until a current seasonal event ends. This should make it easier for everybody to check how much time’s left to complete some assignments, or enjoy the decorations!

Free Beer

After a long negotiation process, the Interplanetary Miner’s Union has reached an agreement with Management to run an open tab at the Abyss Bar for the entirety of this event. You read that right: Two weeks of free beer. This policy represents a significant financial risk to the company, as every beer poured puts a dent in the next corporate earnings report. Management requests that all dwarves drink responsibly.

Space Rig Decorations

The Space Rig’s got to look the part for this momentous occasion, so we’re giving it the full celebrity treatment. Expect tinsel, confetti, sparklers, champagne towers, chandeliers (borrowed from the estate of Mission Control’s grandmother), and a black marble dance floor at the Abyss Bar. You’ll think they sent a Waldorf Astoria to space. Black tie attire optional.
