FuturLab has announced some exciting developments for its immensely-popular clean-up sim, PowerWash Simulator.
After filling out the platform stable with a launch on PlayStation and Switch earlier in the year, as well as bolstering its content offerings with free tie-in content based on Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy VII Remake, the PowerWash Sim world domination tour continues with a heap of new stuff planned for the year ahead.
The studio has announced a range of free and paid content updates for the game, with three free DLC updates and three paid ones planned thus far. Crucially, anything to do with expanding on the game’s fictional locale of Muckingham and the stories within will come at no extra cost to players, whereas the costed DLC will exclusively take fans to “new and exciting places.”
The first piece of said content will be first drop of content in a series dubbed The Muckingham Files, and it’s out this week on April 18th. It’ll come with new jobs to complete, expanded lore added to existing jobs and a number of bug fixes across all platforms. It’s set to take players to the Mauka Aitu Desert to dust off a Solar Water Plant and huge Satellite Dish as well as a return to lush green of Muckingham’s recreational grounds to wash down a filthy Muck n’ Ham Burgers food truck.
Following that in Q2 2023 will be a paid DLC pack and then the physical release of the game on PS5, PS4, Xbox and Nintendo Switch. The physical copy will contain all of the same existing and future free content as the digital edition and retail for $39.95 when it lands in Aussie stores on June 16th. Pre-orders are open now on all platforms at EB Games and JB Hi-Fi, although inexplicably the Xbox version doesn’t seem to be releasing here.
It’s also worth noting – the Switch version will contain a download code for the game inside the box as opposed to a physical cartidge.
