Let me start by saying: FuturLab and Square Enix have outdone themselves with creating a content-rich simulator game.

Let’s be honest, a simulator game’s longevity caters to a specific set of audience; and that is if the developer is able to provide adequate balances and engaging content.

Somehow, FuturLab has come up with a formula that speaks to the success of PowerWash Simulator.

I won’t bore you with all the details about what the game is about; you’ll soon discover it for yourself. Instead, let’s jump into a little history and  what you can be excited about!


Starting With The Facts.
At the time of writing, the game is only available digitally.

PowerWash Simulator was released for Early Access on PC in 2021. The game later fully launched on Windows, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S in July 2022, followed by releases for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch in January 2023.

In two months after the release, the game exceeded 3 million players. That is quite the achievement for a simulator game.

Previous content released included the base game, additional maps, and even more additional content collaborations with Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy 7. From personal experience, washing Croft Manor and Shinra’s vehicles are both satisfying and aggravating at the same time.

New and Upcoming Content

An upcoming Spongebob Squarepants DLC pack will be available this summer. This pack will send us to clean up places like Squidward’s home!

Golly Squidward… how did your home get so filthy?

As you can see in the Roadmap above, there will be much more content and updates coming later this year.

Additionally, when the game’s twitter account hit 40,000 followers, they surprised us with a special announcement. You might have just guessed it, we are getting a Warhammer 40K collaboration. You can see the announcement video here.

If you are a VR fan, you can also rejoice because they have partnered with nDreams to develop their VR experience. Stay tuned for more as I will update our VR fans on this as soon as more information is available.

Best Features of the Game
I do not function well with most first-person view games. My experiences are always a coin flip whether I can tolerate the motion blur or not (even with that feature turned off). I can handle Dying Light just fine, but can’t handle Borderlands 3, Anthem, or PowerWash Simulator for prolonged periods.

What makes this game different? The amount of intuitive gameplay options available.

It gets dizzying for me after moving my power washer back and forth on the screen. There is a toggle that allows me to remain stationary while only moving the hose to tackle my objectives. Admittedly, it is not the most engaging in this mode, but my eyes and lack of motion sickness both thank this option.

Does your finger or hand cramp after holding down a button for too long or repeatedly pressing buttons? Don’t worry, so does mine. They have a solution for this too – you can toggle a button that turns your hose on and off without having to constantly hold your triggers!


Is there multiplayer?
Absolutely! However, there is limited cross-playability – PC and Xbox users can connect to each other, but the same is not available on the other consoles at this time.

Even without the cross-play function, the game is still a blast with a friend (said by me after spending almost 20+ hours with someone power washing just a few weekends ago).

How much replayability is there?

In short, a lot. Ultimately, it depends on your playstyle – solo or multiplayer. Most maps you clear can be replayed; they even include timed challenges for certain maps.


If I have multiple platforms, which one should I go for?
The answer can be tricky – it depends.

Currently, I have two copies of the game – Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 5. Thus, I will make two recommendations accordingly.

If you prefer portability over graphics and performance, I would highly recommend getting it on the Nintendo Switch. There are some graphical stutters, but the game functions as well as you can expect on the Switch.

On the other hand, if you prefer graphics and seamless interface/performance, I would recommend getting it on whichever system has the best specs. The convenience of it on my Switch is nice when I want to take it on the go or relax in handheld mode, but I thoroughly enjoy my overall experience on my PlayStation 5 much more.


When will physical copies arrive?
Physical copies are set to arrive on June 13 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch.

If you would like to pre-order a physical copy, there is still time to do so here.
