If you want to check out what Deep Rock Galactic was like back then, or want a hit of nostalgia, then you can access this legacy version via Steam. According to the devs, the saves are shared between the two versions of DRG so, unless you want to, there is no need to start a new save game. There will also be no need to re-download DRG for any reason as both versions are included.

Follow the steps below to find out how to play Deep Rock Galactic: Legacy Edition:

  1. Restart Steam if you already have it open
  2. Open the Steam Library

  8. Select Play 2018 Legacy Edition from the list
