Fully defrosted and ready to set sail on all platforms, explore a frozen frontier now and uncover its sinister secrets.


Black Salt Games and Team17 Digital have today launched ‘The Pale Reach’, the first expansion to the multi-award-winning indie fishing adventure DREDGE, on Steam, GOG, Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles for £5.99/$5.99 US/€5.99.

In DREDGE: The Pale Reach, players can explore a brand-new biome in the world of DREDGE which will require additional equipment, including the new and formidable ‘icebreaker’ attachment, to break through its frozen bergs. Players looking to uncover all the secrets of The Pale Reach will need to trawl its freezing depths and traverse its crystalline canyons while following in the footsteps of a doomed expedition lost to time. Avid oceanographers will also be able to cast a line or drop a pot to hunt 11 new fish and crab species and their aberrated counterparts while purchasing blocks of ice to help prolong the value of their most valuable catches.

From today, Steam players looking to add even more flair to their fishing in DREDGE can enable Razer Chroma™ RGB and help bring light to even the darkest expedition out on the open seas.

DREDGE’s second paid expansion, ‘The Iron Rig’, is set to arrive in early-2024.
