SteamWorld Dig 2 is already a smash-hit!

SteamWorld Dig 2 Tops The Charts – Here’s Why You’ll Love It Too!

Howdy, partners!

SteamWorld Dig 2 is out now on Nintendo Switch, Steam and PS4/Vita. Now that it’s available on all planned platforms we thought we’d recap how the launch is going for us.

Critics can’t stop praising it

SWD2 is enjoying extremely favorable reviews, with a current score of 88/100 on Metacritic. It’s the #4 Best Switch Game of ALL TIME. We’re extremely proud of this achievement and would love to share what notable media have to say. You can read the reviews in case you want to hear from others what makes the game so special:

10/10 – Nintendo World Report“Blows the original out of the water”
9/10 – GameSpot“A polished jewel.”
9/10 – Pocket Gamer“A must-have”
9/10 – Nintendo Life“Excellent”
8.8/10 – IGN“Pitch perfect”
8.5/10 – Destructoid“A worthy addition to any library”

At the time of writing the game has yet to receive a score below 8/10 (a “problem” we’re actually pretty happy to have).

It’s selling like hotcakes, too!

Players are having a blast as well, with the 98% approval rating on Steam being the obvious proof. Everyone’s praise results in impressive sales; I’m happy to announce that SWD2 is the biggest launch in SteamWorld history, selling faster than any game we’ve ever made before it. On Switch it’s topping the charts in as good as every country. In less than a week we’ve already earned back most of the game’s total development budget. Twenty or so people for almost a year and a half… You do the math!

Help us cement SWD2 as a modern classic

We’d like to humbly thank each and everyone who’s helped us make the SWD2 launch the roaring success it is. With your help we’re off to a great start and now is a better time than ever to get the game on everybody’s lips for years to come. Please continue talking about the game online and share it with your friends, fans and family. If you believe the game deserves its spot in the video game hall of fame you know what to do.

Howdy, everyone!

Price, Cross-buy, Launch Discount and DLC

SteamWorld Heist will launch simultaneously in the Americas, Europe, and Australia. It comes with a slew of wonderful languages and will also be cross-buy. We did a PS4/Vita cross-buy when we launched SteamWorld Dig on PlayStation back in 2014, so doing it again was a no-brainer.

The full price will be $19.99 / €19.99 / £15.99 (or the equivalent), but to celebrate SteamWorld Heist’s HD debut we’re also treating PlayStation gamers to a 15% discount. If you’re in Europe or Australia, the game is available for pre-order from today and you can enjoy the discount in the two weeks until launch. Our friends in the Americas will get the discount at launch. Make sure to check the PlayStation Store for more info once the SteamWorld Heist game page is up and running in your region!

Also, The Outsider DLC will be available on both PS4 and PS Vita from day one. Exciting times!
