New SteamWorld Build Trailer Showcased Ahead Of 2023 PC, Xbox, PlayStation & Switch Release


Gothenburg, Sweden - June 10th, 2023 - Thunderful and internal development studio The Station have offered a deeper dive into the upcoming SteamWorld Build, due to release on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch in 2023, via a new trailer that debuted today at the Future Game Show. Fans can dig into the next entry in the SteamWorld series themselves between June 19th and June 26th, where a SteamWorld Build demo will be part of the Steam Next Fest.


As is tradition with this beloved franchise, SteamWorld Build takes a well known genre and gives it a unique twist, delivering a multi-level city-building experience that tasks you with constructing a thriving town above ground, while mining resources and dealing with monsters below.

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 has been developed on PC and console simultaneously, ensuring that the game’s design, UX and UI all work just as well with a controller in hand, as they do with mouse and keyboard. The game features a user-friendly interface and mechanics designed to cater to both experienced players and newcomers to the city builder genre, further refined by three difficulty levels to choose from.


“The response to SteamWorld Build from our fans and critics has been fantastic so far,” said SteamWorld Universe and Franchise Director, Brjánn Sigurgeirsson. “It’s a pleasure to give fans another look at the game and we’ll be sharing more via our community-focused SteamWorld Telegraph show, which recently kicked back into gear”.


“The love that’s been shown for SteamWorld Build has been wonderful to see and only fuels our desire to deliver a game that meets the high standards of this award-winning franchise,” said Adam Vassee, producer at The Station. “The response so far suggests we’ve really hit on something with our Anno meets Dungeon Keeper style gameplay, but I can assure you we will keep working hard to make the best SteamWorld game possible!”


SteamWorld Build will release on PC, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch™ in 2023.
