SteamWorld Heist 2 Deep Dive Trailer Details Story, World Map, Ship Combat, and More

Since its announcement last month, Thunderful has shared new details on SteamWorld Heist 2 at a pretty consistent clip, and more of those have now emerged courtesy of a new deep dive trailer. Following up on the previous deep dive trailer, which detailed the game’s combat, jobs system, and more, this new one sheds further light on the tactical RPG’s story, world, and more.

SteamWorld Heist 2 is set on the shard of a shattered planet, which is dominated largely by a great sea. Water from the sea is required by the shard’s resident Steambots to be able to operate, but with the sea having become poisoned, unrest is growing. In this setting, players will take on the role of Captain Quincy Leeway, who, along with his companions Daisy and Wesley, sets off on a journey that will see you expand your crew with new recruits, purchase upgrades, explore the world, and more.

Speaking of which, SteamWorld Heist 2 will present players with a large, freely explorable world map. Presented as an overworld, players will be able to navigate the map using their ship- which, of course, will bring plenty of additional mechanics. For starters, exploring the sea will also go hand-in-and with dealing with different sections of the map bringing different enemies, threats, and more.

Naval combat will be prominently featured, allowing players to, say, take on different kinds of Royal Navy ships in real-time encounters, as opposed to the game’s traditional turn-based tactics battles. As you progress deeper into the game and explore more of the world, you’ll be able to unlock and acquire upgrades for your ships, including better weapons or armour plating, being able to explore underwater areas, and more.

Check out the trailer below for more details.

SteamWorld Heist 2 launches on August 8 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It will also be available on Game Pass at launch.
