Thunderful Games has exciting news for gaming enthusiasts as they have officially unveiled the much-anticipated release date for their upcoming steampunk city builder, “SteamWorld Build.” After its initial announcement earlier this year, the game now has a confirmed launch date of December 1. But that’s not all – there’s an added bonus for Xbox players. The game will be available on Xbox Game Pass right from day one, making it accessible to players on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S consoles without any delay.
For PC gamers, there’s another treat in store. If you’re already in possession of the SteamWorld Complete Bundle, you’re in for a special treat: a 20% discount on “SteamWorld Build” when purchased through Steam. The game has even gone the extra mile by offering a demo on the Steam platform, allowing players to get a taste of the gameplay if they’re not fully convinced just yet.
One of the most impressive aspects of “SteamWorld Build” is its development strategy. The game was meticulously crafted for both PC and console platforms simultaneously. The goal was to ensure that the gameplay experience would be seamless whether players chose to control the action with a controller or the traditional keyboard and mouse setup. This innovation brings a genre that has historically been centered around PC gaming to the console world, promising a harmonious experience across platforms.
Diving into the gameplay itself, “SteamWorld Build” revolves around the ingenious concept of utilizing natural resources found above ground and the valuable ores hidden beneath the earth’s surface. As players expand their city, they will encourage the emergence of new residential tiers, each contributing to the overarching quest to dig deeper and uncover untold riches. The ultimate objective is to help the residents of the city escape the planet and its challenges.
In an official press release, Brjánn Sigurgeirsson, the director of the SteamWorld universe and franchise, shared his excitement about the game’s impending release. “We’re all really happy to finally reveal that SteamWorld Build will be releasing on December 1st and that it will be available on Xbox Game Pass day one,” Sigurgeirsson stated, expressing the team’s enthusiasm.
Although “SteamWorld Build” is set to make its mark on PlayStation platforms as well, there’s been no confirmation regarding its availability on PlayStation Plus. As eager fans count down the days, it’s important to note that the game will also be accessible on the Nintendo Switch for those who prefer a handheld gaming experience.
In conclusion, mark your calendars for December 1st as the day “SteamWorld Build” makes its grand entrance onto the gaming scene. Regardless of the platform you choose, the game’s release is set in stone, promising an engaging and immersive steampunk city-building adventure for all to enjoy.
