Get Mechanized on April 4th in first DLC for city builder SteamWorld Build

From Press Release:

Gothenburg, Sweden – April 2, 2024 – Get ready to explore alongside a new best friend! Today, publisher Thunderful Games and developer The Station revealed a new DLC, Mechanized, for their city-building, single-player title, SteamWorld Build, set to release on April 4 on PC via Steam, PlayStation and Xbox.

In the Mechanized DLC, players will be able to explore new mines, solve puzzles, construct new buildings, and encounter new exciting enemies alongside a new companion: The Mech. Players will be able to work with their new companion to escape from the planet, as they are tailored to solve any puzzling problem players may encounter by moving, pulling and lifting, due to their brute, raw strength.

Working alongside The Mech to conquer and explore, players can look forward to exciting new content, including:

  • Abomination – As a creature mashed together from different Vectron enemies, players must be wary of Abomination as they dig into the Cracking Depths. Abomination can appear from enemy pits several times, forcing players to react to defeat them, or be at risk of overwhelming their enemies.

  • The Mech Center – A new city building, The Mech Center, will be accessible to players, where they can upgrade it 2x to make the center more visually impressive. The Mech Center is where the player accesses unique Mech upgrades that will help them in exploration by cleaning and lifting, and also stronger, in order to face the increased dangers and threats.

  • Rebalanced Enemies – With the addition of the Abomination, the Mechanized DLC will put pressure on the player’s defenses, making the game more difficult. In addition to enemies spawning from Hives, they can randomly dig up on the second and third floor from a new element, Burrows. Burrows can be detected by Radars and alert Guards before they arrive, but The Mech can suppress burrows by sitting on them to stop the enemies from coming through.

  • Blocks and Puzzles – 8 new mine features, 10 new blocks with unique functions, 6 new “machine” objects and 2 non-block items will be accessible to players.

To check out the brand new Mechanized DLC, players can purchase beginning on April 4, with the following options:

  • Standalone DLC Available on PC via Steam, PlayStation and Xbox

  • Deluxe Edition Bundle – Available on PC via Steam, PlayStation and Xbox, and includes base game and DLC

  • Gold Edition Bundle – Available on PC via Steam only, and includes base game, DLC, soundtrack and Dig 1

Set in a world inhabited solely by robots, in SteamWorld Build, players must escape a dying planet by building a mining town to dig up vital long-lost technology. SteamWorld Build was released in December 2023 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
