VRKiwi released Cave Digger 2: Dig Harder via Steam Early Access last September, receiving positive feedback from the few players who left it. Today, the studio has announced that this multiplayer adventure is coming to Meta Quest, arriving on Oculus App Lab and Sidequest later next week.
The original Cave Digger was a fun little underground miner, encouraging you to dig ever deeper for riches. The sequel takes that initial premise and adds a lot more, including a 4-player co-op mode and a far more lavish dieselpunk world. Of course, there’s still plenty of mining to be done and secrets to discover.
Meta Quest 1 & 2 users not only get to play Cave Digger 2: Dig Harder natively on the platform, they’ll also be treated to a massive content update VRKiwi is rolling out for PC VR players as well. Called Escape from the Valley, the update adds a whole new biome to explore (the title’s third) featuring a dry lake bed where your base camp is located. Underneath lies the nest biome where you’ll come across two new enemy types – stronger than anything yet found in the game.
To help with this your tools are getting upgrades such as explosive damage-dealing changes, improving loot efficiency and general mobility. There will of course be a new ending to discover and two new graphic novel issues to enjoy, continuing the great adventurer Clayton’s story. You’ll need to find the pages throughout the world of Cave Digger.
In Cave Digger 2: Dig Harder you begin as a prospector starting from a small camp, who needs to explore and excavate valuable resources to afford new items. As you descend deeper into the world you discover that something has already been here before.
Cave Digger 2: Dig Harder is set to arrive for the Meta Quest platform on 17th March 2022, either through App Lab or Sidequest, your pick. VRKiwi goes into more detail regarding the update in the below video. For continued updates on the early access videogame, keep reading gmw3.
