Don’t you simply love Christmas? The music, the meals, the laughter, the screams of elves getting shoved into packing containers in a chilly darkish house mine. It’s probably the most magical time of the 12 months, particularly now that charming co-op shooter Deep Rock Galactic has launched its annual Yuletide Elf Hunt. It’s time to decorate up your dwarves, seize your pickaxes, and get again to hauling rocks for an oppressive company. There’s double XP in it for you.
The occasion truly contains two assignments, every sending you on a sequence of missions which you could full for “hefty” development rewards and particular Christmas cosmetics. The missions aren’t that completely different from common ones, as greatest I can inform, aside from the addition of creepy little elves that scuttle along cave ceilings and walls. If you may catch one and stuff it in your robo-mining cart, you may earn double season XP for that mission.
Completing the Yearly Performance Bonus task earns you “the Reindeer Games headwear”, whereas ending the Elf Hunt nets you the elf costumes above, the “Chillaxe pickaxe set”, and a festive paint job for the little robotic that joins you in the event you launch into missions by your self.
The greatest bit would possibly truly be all of the decorations within the hub, which is an unusually in depth and interactive foyer space the place you hang around whereas your friends fiddle with their weapons and whatnot. It’s now extraordinarily Christmassy, and contains snowballs so that you can chuck at one another. The robotic that serves you beer is carrying a bit of hat now, look.
Best get cracking, as a result of the occasion ends on January fifth.
