There’s also good news for Xbox Game Pass players as SteamWorld Build will launch day one on the service across both PC and Xbox.

“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. We’ve been sharing information about the game via our community-focused SteamWorld Telegraph show and everyone is welcome to join us as we share more about the game between now and release!”

SteamWorld Build is a mix of Anno meets Dungeon Keeper gameplay. Players build a city themed around steampunk and at the same time, dig underground mines to find rare resources used to further enhance the town above.

“We’ve worked really hard to create an Anno meets Dungeon Keeper style city builder that works as well on console as it does on PC, We’re been humbled by the positive response the game has had from fans and press and are really excited to continue the story of this award-winning franchise.”

Developer Thunderful Games says SteamWorld Build has been developed for console and PC at the same time and the RTX component works with a controller.

Developed for PC and console simultaneously, every aspect of SteamWorld Build‘s has been designed to ensure that the game works just as well with a controller in hand as it does with mouse and keyboard, bringing a traditionally PC-centric genre to console without compromise. As well as welcoming players regardless of what platform they are on, SteamWorld Build follows the series’ tradition in catering to both experienced players and newcomers to the city builder genre.

As the architect of a SteamWorld mining town, break ground and raise houses for your steambot citizens, keep them fed and provide some rootin’-tootin’ entertainment. Venture into the abandoned mine sitting under your town, rumoured to be filled with ancient tech that holds the key to escaping impending doom. Using the natural resources above ground and the abundant ores buried below, expand your town, stimulate new residential tiers to join the quest to dig deeper, unearth untold riches and ultimately help them to hightail it off the planet!

SteamWorld Build‘s above and below-ground elements have an interdependent relationship where everything you discover, mine or build feeds into what you can do when you switch from above to below, and vice versa. These cogs all fit together to create a satisfying game loop where you are always making progress and are always engaged.
