Here’s a rundown on the new content, plus a trailer:

Following the launch of The Pale Reach last year, The Iron Rig is the game’s second premium expansion and will see players revisiting every area from the base game with renewed purpose. Intended to be started at any time during their DREDGE adventure, players will work with the Ironhaven Corporation and collect resources to build a formidable base of operations, unlocking new tiers of equipment, abilities, gadgets, and consumables.

As the drilling operation on the rig intensifies, something stirs in the primordial depths. A dark liquid begins to seep into familiar and once-safe areas of the game, transforming them into perilous zones. Players must carefully assess the impact of this mysterious substance on local fish species, unveiling peculiar specimens from the abyssal depths as they go about adding more than 50 new fish to the game’s encyclopaedia. The Iron Rig expansion adds a new tier of fishing equipment, as well as new characters to interact with, new hazards to overcome, and new world events and lore to uncover.
