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 rest of this year, the studio is planning on a whole bunch of extra content, both free and premium.
As detailed on its website, FuturLab says the game will receive free content updates that keep the action in-universe, while paid DLC packs will see further crossovers. Nothing is confirmed on that front, but it's exciting to know there's more to come.
The first free update is being called the Muckingham Files (named after the town in which the game is set). It releases on 18th April 2023 — next week — and contains more jobs and more of its daft narrative. Two jobs in the desert will have you cleaning a solar water plant and a big satellite dish, then you'll head into the park to hose down a filthy food truck. The update will also add some story wrinkles to existing Special jobs, as well as make some bug fixes.
In addition to all the extra content heading our way, FuturLab has also confirmed that PowerWash Simulator is heading to retail. Physical editions on all platforms are coming, including PS5 and PS4, set for release on 13th June 2023. You can pre-order now.

My wife will no longer let me play this when she's in the house. She said the noise it makes reminds her of waking up in the middle of the night when the TV channels have gone off.
I guess you'll have to be over a certain age to understand what I mean
I wonder if the PS/Xbox physical versions will be actual physical versions. They already revealed the Switch version to be a download code in box type situation.
So they are making physical versions for this crap but not for Live A Live and only a limited print of FF Pixel remasters.
This game begs for a psvr2 mode I think.
In case their marketing department needs some ideas on what else could be cleansed, I’ve got a few ideas they can use free of charge (as long as they thank me in the credits):
—Muckingham Palace…We’re going to battle. Let’s cleanse the castle!
—The Blight House in WASHington, D. C. (Dirty City). Cleanse the corruption.
—Oh no! The Chichen Itza’s leftover pizza!
—Brace yourselves for The cLeaning Tower of Pisa.
—The Taj Mahal’s greatest fall? The mildew covered toilet stall!
—The Temple of Artemis at Ephesis…it’s soiled by butt creases!
—The Mausoleum at Halicarnassis…it’s toxic with gases!
—Macchu Picchu…power wash it, we beseech you!
—The Statue of Liberty…wash her nose with your rubber hose. And spray down her armpit…it smells like sh_t!!
This and the original Sim City are the only games that have invaded my dreams every night whilst playing it.
Please don't make me play more.
Need to get back on this. Was making steady progress with its plat until other new releases got me off it. Hopefully the paid dlc would mean it's most likely getting a new set of trophies, hope it does
