We still don’t really know how the draw of PowerWash Simulator works. We can’t be bothered to wash our own patios or cars, so why on earth do we want to do it in the virtual world? But honestly, PowerWash Simulator came out of nowhere to deliver one of the finest gaming experiences of 2022. And it’s continuing to do so too, with the chance to clean up in the iconic Croft Manor, home of Tomb Raider’s, Lara. Just so happens that the base game is launching on PlayStation and Switch too – although, if we’re honest, that’s much less exciting news.
Having launched on Xbox and PC, through Game Pass no less, back in 2022, the Square Enix Collective and FuturLab surprise hit now brings in the Crystal Dynamics team, as launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch hits home.
Much more exciting though is the latest content that comes bundled with those versions, running as a free update on Xbox and PC. It’s the Tomb Raider Special Pack, and it gives us the chance to clean up Croft Manor, home to Tomb Raider’s Lara. We can’t think of a better home to get washing the cobwebs from.
“Creating the TOMB RAIDER Special Pack has been an honour and a fantastic experience” said Dan Chequer, Lead Designer at FuturLab. “We can’t wait for players to get up close and personal with Croft Manor and explore its many secrets!”
“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!”
Should you have maxed out everything that PowerWash Simulator has been able to offer, or are coming in clean with the PlayStation and Switch versions, you’ll find Croft Manor ready to be blasted. Running as a free update, all you need to do is fire up your game today and prepare your hose for action.
If you haven’t yet purchased PowerWash Simulator, we’d advise heading to the Xbox Store. It’s priced at £19.99 unless you want to use your Game Pass subscription. Expect the update to appear from 5pm UK time on 31st Jan 2023.
