Deep Rock Galactic has brought mouthy space dwarves to PC and Xbox One.

Deep Rock Galactic is the first project from indie developer Ghost Ship Games. The game borrows elements from Left 4 Dead, Minecraft and other exploration games like Astroneer and adds co-op to the formula.

Deep Rock Galactic is a co-op shooter where you occasionally have to survive against space bugs, and mine for resources in between rounds. The idea is pretty smart, and the game has now landed on Steam Early Access and Xbox One Game Preview.

But that’s not all, Deep Rock Galactic also features four distinct classes. Each class brings one or two unique abilities only they can provide, and it sounds like you’re going to need all of them to survive.

The game’s worlds are procedurally-generated, and the entire environment is destructible. The launch version has seven unique locations on Planet Hoxxes, and you can grab it from Steam or the Xbox Store for $25/£19/€23.

Deep Rock Galactic was announced at E3 last year. It’s the first game published by Goat Simulator developer Coffee Stain, and will remain in Early Access for one to two years.
