Powerwash Simulator – Kostenloses „Final Fantasy“-DLC veröffentlicht

Powerwash Simulator – Kostenloses „Final Fantasy“-DLC veröffentlicht

Ab sofort ist das kostenlose Final Fantasy VII-DLC namens „Midgar Special Pack“ für den Powerwash Simulator verfügbar. Wir werden ikonische Orte wie Seventh Heaven, Mako Energy Exhibit, Hardy Daytona, Shinra Hauler, Scorpion Sentinel und Airbuster besuchen und reinigen.

Das sagen die Beteiligten:

“We designed Midgar, the city of Mako in 1997. Who would have thought that we would be returning to these iron buildings in 2023 to wash off all the oil and dirt with a power washer? Now let’s get to work, over 25 years of filth isn’t going away without a fight,” said Yoshinori Kitase, FINAL FANTASY VII Director, and FINAL FANTASY VII Remake Project Producer.

Tetsuya Nomura, FINAL FANTASY VII Character Designer and FINAL FANTASY VII Remake Project Creative Director added, “When I heard about the proposal for a collab, I was quite busy with various other collabs and reviews, but I was especially excited about this one. I had just been playing PowerWash Simulator and was daydreaming about cleaning things from my titles. My immediate response was “let’s wash the entire Shinra building,” Unfortunately, that seemed to be a bit difficult, but the final line-up is exciting, nonetheless. This is something I have been looking forward to a lot and hope everyone has a great time!”

“It’s been an incredible privilege for the PowerWash Simulator team to recreate vehicles, locations and bosses from one of gaming’s most iconic titles,” said Dan Chequer, Lead Designer at FuturLab. “We’re all huge fans of the Final Fantasy franchise and hope our players enjoy cleaning the jobs down as much as we’ve enjoyed covering them in every type of dirt from bio to mako.”

“We’re so excited to be working with one of the most iconic franchises in gaming history for the Midgar Special Pack,“ said Tímea Edvi, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix. „We knew that we wanted to do something really big to say thank you to the amazing PowerWash Simulator community for all their support – we can’t wait to see people playing it!“

FuturLab und Square Enix Collective haben ihren Powerwash Simulator nun auch für PS4, PS5 und Nintendo Switch veröffentlicht. Somit ist das Spiel nun auf „allen“ Plattformen erhältlich. Passend zum Release gibt es natürlich einen frischen Launch-Trailer – wir wünschen schaumige Unterhaltung.

“We’re thrilled to be able to bring PowerWash Simulator to the PlayStation and Nintendo Switch consoles,” said Chris Mehers, COO FuturLab. “Our community have been such a wonderful support, so we are delighted to give them such an iconic IP like TOMB RAIDER to wash!”

“The PowerWash community have really blown us away with their love for the game from day one,” said Phil Elliott, head of publishing label Square Enix Collective. “With help from the awesome folks at Crystal Dynamics, the TOMB RAIDER Special Pack is a great way for us to say thank you!”

“What Tomb Raider fan hasn’t explored Croft Manor and thought ‘Winston could really use some help with these grounds! I would love to power wash this place!’?” asked Dallas Dickinson, Franchise General Manager for TOMB RAIDER at Crystal Dynamics. “Now, with the help of Square Enix Collective and FuturLab that’s not only possible, but immensely satisfying as well.”

“We know the community wants more to clean, and I’m delighted we’re able to kick off our post-release plans in style with this TOMB RAIDER collaboration,” added Phil Elliott, studio head at Square Enix Collective. “We’ve had so much great support from players, press and content creators, and we wanted to do something special to say thank you!”
