Square Enix and developer FuturLab have announced that PowerWash Simulator’s Final Fantasy VII-themed DLC will launch on March 2 for all platforms. The update will feature “Five levels set above and below the plate” as well as “accept jobs from both loyal members of Avalanche, and Shinra bigshots.” PowerWash Simulator is available now for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and Microsoft Store.
Wait… what? Final Fantasy Downloadable Content in PowerWash Simulator?!
Yep! FuturLab are collaborating with the Final Fantasy VII team to bring the gritty city of Midgar to PowerWash Simulator. You could say that Midgar is facing an Avalanche… of dirt.
This new pack contains five levels set above and below the plate. Armed with your collection of high-pressure power washers, you’ll set to work clearing up the mess made by Midgar’s usual suspects—Don Corneo’s lackeys, Professor Hojo’s “specimens” and Heidegger’s dangerous tech.
You’ll accept jobs from both loyal members of Avalanche, and Shinra bigshots. As you clean, you’ll discover their stories through text messages.
Of course, the city of Midgar is a far cry from the not-really-mean streets of Muckingham—you’ll have to contend with new dirt types, such as bio-residue, as you spray your way through some truly iconic locations.
So What are We Cleaning in the “Midgar Special Pack”?
As mentioned, the “Midgar Special Pack” contains five levels:
The Hardy Daytona and Shinra Hauler – How is anyone expected to drive away from the Shinra Building in dirt-encrusted vehicles? Someone needs to make them sparkle once more. You are that someone.
The Mighty Scorpion Sentinel – Clean while its tail is up! It’s gonna counter with… well, nothing. It’s been deactivated for the cleaning job at hand—you’re fine. But the Scorpion Sentinel, on the other hand, is looking a little worse for wear. It’s covered in grime and requires one heck of a spring clean.
The Charming Seventh Heaven – The interior of the beloved Sector 7 bar is absolutely filthy—nobody’s going to want to sit and sup a Cosmo Canyon cocktail in that. Or eat Egg and Chips. Better get to work.
The Mako Energy Exhibit – The Shinra Building’s famous energy exhibit is caked in all kinds of muck. You’ll have to be sure to get into all the nooks and crannies of that model of Midgar in order to make it shine as brightly as the lifestream itself. Why you? Well, it’s the Shinra Electric Power Company, not the Shinra Electric Power Washing Company, right?
The Formidable Airbuster – The pinnacle of Shinra engineering, this super-powerful mech is set to make a big splash when it’s deployed against the company’s enemies. Of course, it can’t go into service looking like that, so give it a once-over with your power washer. Actually, make that a twice-over at the least—it’s very dirty!
When is the “Midgar Special Pack” releasing?
The “Midgar Special Pack” is set for release March 2, 2023 for all platforms: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
And—cue the victory fanfare—it’s free to anyone who owns the game!
We hope you’re excited to start cleaning up Midgar. Of course, there’s plenty of PowerWash Simulator fun to experience right now.
