SteamWorld Build Mechanized DLC

Thunderful and The Station today unveiled new Mechanized DLC for SteamWorld Build, and it should be launching soon.

The DLC lets players explore new mines, solve puzzles, construct new buildings, and encounter new enemies alongside a new companion: The Mech. By working with this companion, they’ll be able to escape from the planet, as they are tailored to solve any puzzling problem players may encounter by moving, pulling and lifting, due to their brute, raw strength.

Here’s some additional information about what’s included in the SteamWorld Build Mechanized DLC:

Abomination – As a creature mashed together from different Vectron enemies, players must be wary of Abomination as they dig into the Cracking Depths. Abomination can appear from enemy pits several times, forcing players to react to defeat them, or be at risk of overwhelming their enemies.

The Mech Center – A new city building, The Mech Center, will be accessible to players, where they can upgrade it 2x to make the center more visually impressive. The Mech Center is where the player accesses unique Mech upgrades that will help them in exploration by cleaning and lifting, and also stronger, in order to face the increased dangers and threats.

Rebalanced Enemies – With the addition of the Abomination, the Mechanized DLC will put pressure on the player’s defenses, making the game more difficult. In addition to enemies spawning from Hives, they can randomly dig up on the second and third floor from a new element, Burrows. Burrows can be detected by Radars and alert Guards before they arrive, but The Mech can suppress burrows by sitting on them to stop the enemies from coming through.

Blocks and Puzzles – 8 new mine features, 10 new blocks with unique functions, 6 new “machine” objects and 2 non-block items will be accessible to players.

We have a trailer for the DLC below.
