SteamWorld Heist 2 Will Receive a Feature Deepdive on May 3rd

Yesterday’s Indie World Showcase may have led to disappointment (yet again) for Hollow Knight fans, but the announcement of SteamWorld Heist 2 is still noteworthy. Thunderful’s sequel retains the turn-based tactical shooting of the original, but with a pirate setting, naval combat, free exploration and a new Job system to customize crewmate abilities in new ways.

Thankfully, the wait for new details and “insights” won’t be long, as the developer has confirmed several deep dives to discuss features, gameplay and lore in the coming weeks. The first Feature Deepdive goes live on May 3rd and should hopefully shine more light on all the systems and mechanics.

SteamWorld Heist 2 launches on August 8th for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch. It’s also launching day one for Game Pass and is confirmed to have over 150 items, guns and ship equipment, and players can raid enemy strongholds to obtain “valuable loot.” Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
