Good, clean fun
By now, you'll have made your mind up about PowerWash Simulator. It's been doing the rounds for a couple of years, winning hearts with its simple, inexplicably compelling gameplay. Yes, it's about blasting water at filthy buildings and objects. Yes, broadly it's quite repetitive and slow. Yes, you could get a power washer and hose...
Clean up Shinra's dirty deeds
Now that PowerWash Simulator is out on basically everything, we're starting to get some really interesting DLC. With Square Enix Collective publishing the game, we've seen a pair of exciting crossovers so far. The first was with Tomb Raider, in which you wash the exterior of Lara's massive mansion. Next up is this, the...

Blast the past
PowerWash Simulator has been the recipient of some great DLC packs, the last being a SpongeBob SquarePants crossover. This cartoonish, undersea level pack was the game's first premium DLC, and it's being followed up with another, only this time, we're going Back to the Future. Yes, the beloved movie franchise is crossing paths with...
Everybody do the sponge
PowerWash Simulator is getting pretty crazy with its add-on packs. The first two — Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy VII — made some sense, seeing as Square Enix Collective published the game, but the next one brings an entirely separate entity to the zen-like experience. Announced back in May, the title's first premium DLC...
At least, not right now
We honestly can’t think of a better combination than PSVR2 and PowerWash Simulator – especially with the haptic feedback and adaptive trigger features included with the PSVR2 Sense Controllers. Unfortunately, despite the game being announced for Meta Quest 2 yesterday, there are no plans for the release to clean up on...
Cleanliness is next to managerliness
We all know who lives in a pineapple under the sea by now, but did you think you'd be paying SpongeBob a visit in his hometown? Well, you'll soon be able to, sort of, when you journey to Bikini Bottom in PowerWash Simulator's next crossover Special Pack. As you can see in the above sneak peek, it looks like one...
Making a splash
Developer FuturLab was once known for its slick action series Velocity, but nowadays it's all about PowerWash Simulator. Initially releasing in early access on PC, this chill game about hosing down dirty objects and buildings is now available pretty much everywhere, and it's clearly been a big success. In fact, the game has reached a...
More clean fun
The brilliant PowerWash Simulator is surprisingly substantial already, but it seems developer FuturLab has big plans for its unusual-yet-satisfying sim. We've already seen two crossover packs come to the game for free, letting you clean Lara Croft's mansion as well as a selection of memorabilia from Final Fantasy VII. Throughout the...
Five new levels for free
Square Enix has announced the free Final Fantasy VII-themed DLC pack for PowerWash Simulator will be available on PS5, PS4 from 2nd March 2023. It includes five more levels, allowing you to clean the likes of Seventh Heaven, a Mako Energy Exhibit, and an Airbuster. The Scorpion Sentinel and Cloud's Hardy Daytona bike also...
While the butler is locked away...
As far as crossovers go, this has to be up there with the very best. While Square Enix has sold off the Tomb Raider IP, it has still managed to secure a little linkup for PowerWash Simulator and the classic Lara Croft series. Available for free alongside the full game releasing for PS5, PS4 on 31st January 2023,...
Sparkling new release date confirmed
PowerWash Simulator is an oddity that really resonated with a lot of people last year, so we're pleased it's finally heading to PlayStation. Announced for Sony's platforms towards the end of 2022, no release date was attached, with the job sim left hanging with a "coming soon". However, publisher Square Enix...
Hang in there
Back in September, we learned the cult-hit game PowerWash Simulator will indeed be coming to PS5 and PS4. However, the announcement stopped short of telling us exactly when we could join the fun. While we're still none the wiser, it looks like developer FuturLab is planning for a big update soon. In a statement on social media, the...
