We all love a good city-building game, and it seems like mining is all the rage, so why is it taking so long for anyone to combine the two? Well, great news for fans of architecture and spelunking everywhere, as publisher Thunderful announced that developer The Station is hard at work on SteamWorld Build, an exciting new entry in the SteamWorld franchise. So when is the SteamWorld Build release date?

Described as “Anno meets Dungeon Keeper”, the upcoming title SteamWorld Build features all of the charm, polish, and talking robots of previous SteamWorld entries such as Dig, Heist, and Quest. This time though, players control a town full of SteamBots, looking to turn a barren wasteland into a busy city, as you manage resources and complete tasks along the way.

That’s not all though, as SteamWorld Build gives players an even deeper set of tasks, as you also manage a mineshaft, which has you balance the resources and goals from both overground and underground to build the robot city of your dreams. Developer The Station unveiled the first footage at the SteamWorld Telegraph presentation and also confirmed the game is heading to Nintendo Switch.

SteamWorld Build is due to release on December 1, 2023, on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X, and PC. A Steam demo is available now for those with PC access.
