Thunderful and The Station are pleased to announce that the latest free update for SteamWorld Build is available to download now on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch. The Dorado Crest update brings a new mesoamerican themed map to the game which contains 3 new maps, one new for each layer, as well as new decor and a new building.

With the Dorado Crest update, you will get the new central American pyramid-style “Sacred Site” as a reward building that gives players a unique bonus for the next playthrough, and access to 12 new pieces of environmental decor, including pyramids, a firepit and statues. Dorado Crest follows on from the recent free Jingle Bolts holiday update and there is more free content planned for players to look forward to over the course of 2024.

SteamWorld Build offers a cosy building sandbox that oils the cogs with that unique SteamWorld secret sauce in an experience that works just  as well on console as it does on PC. 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!
