We’ll also see a FREE content update (NOT a bug patch, they pride themselves on not releasing buggy games!) aimed for release in January 2016.

The free update will contain:
– More languages. In addition to the launch of the English version, the update will add French, Italian, German, Spanish and Russian.
– Additional fun game stuff!


Join Captain Piper Faraday, smuggler and occasional pirate, as she recruits a rag-tag team of steam-driven robots and sets out on a daring adventure. With your hearty crew you’ll board, loot and shoot your way through enemy spaceships. Overcome the challenges of the vast frontier by upgrading your robots with unique abilities, weapons – and even stylish hats!

SteamWorld Heist focuses on skill rather than dice rolls. You’re in charge of aiming and can bounce bullets off the environment for cool trick shots.

If you’re new to turn-based strategy, SteamWorld Heist is a great place to start. And veterans will enjoy the depth and challenge of the game’s higher difficulty levels.

Key features

  • Turn-based strategy focused on skill rather than chance
  • Aim freely and bounce bullets to perform clever trick shots
  • Master 100+ weapons
  • Kind to newcomers, deep and challenging for veterans
  • Randomly generated levels
  • 15-20 hours of playtime (excluding side missions and New Game+)
  • Steampunk tunes by legendary Steam Powered Giraffe
  • Fearsome bosses and a playful narrative

Whether your a fan of SteamWorld Dig, turn based strategy games, or you simply love Steampunk Robot Pirates you’ll want to buy the game before December 31 even if you’d prefer to play in a language other than English. They’re going to offer a 15% launch discount ($16.99 / €16.99 / £11.99, down from the regular $19.99 / €19.99 / £14.99) and a free home menu theme that will be gone after December 31.
