Every year, Deep Rock Galactic introduces a variety of events that bring a plethora of exciting new content to this cooperative first-person shooter. Traditionally, the game commences each year with what is known as the Lunar Festival. Drawing inspiration from the Chinese Lunar New Year celebration, Deep Rock Fantasy sets the stage for the rest of the year with this iconic seasonal event.
So, if you're eager to learn more about the upcoming Lunar event in Deep Rock Galactic, you're in the right place. Below, you'll find a comprehensive overview of everything we currently know about the forthcoming Deep Rock Galactic Lunar Festival event, including its start date, new content additions, fresh features, and much more.
Deep Rock Galactic Lunar Festival Seasonal Event Start Date
As of the current writing, we don't have an official start date for the Lunar Festival Seasonal Events. However, we can make a reasonable estimate based on the start date of previous Lunar events and the fact that it traditionally begins at the start of the year, given its New Year theme. So, making an educated guess, we suspect that the next Lunar Festival Seasonal event will likely be released around mid-January 2024, roughly between the 12th and 19th of January, and it will probably conclude in early February.
This estimation is based on the timeline for the 2023 event, which began on January 19th and ended on February 2nd. We expect a similar timeframe for the 2024 Lunar Festival Seasonal event, but of course, it's important to take this with a grain of salt until we receive an official schedule from the developers.
Deep Rock Galactic Lunar Festival Seasonal Event Content & Features
Naturally, we currently lack an official breakdown of the content and features set to arrive for the 2024 Lunar Festival Seasonal Event. However, based on the content from this year's event in 2023, we can anticipate that the features will be somewhat similar.
First and foremost, we expect there to be another Lunar Festival Assignment, likely rewarding players with cosmetic items, such as the Lunar Rabbit Hat that was featured in the 2023 event. Players might also have the opportunity to earn Double Season XP, and some of the items from the previous year's event, such as the mentioned hat, could be made available.
Naturally, we anticipate the Space Rig to be fully decorated, either with the 2023 aesthetic or possibly a new design, depending on the developers' constraints. While there could be brand-new content additions and rewards up for grabs, we'll have to wait for the official announcement from the developers to confirm. Rest assured, once the details are released, you can expect to find them here, as we'll provide you with all the information you need to know about the next Lunar Festival Seasonal Event.
