SteamWorld Heist, the beloved turn-based tactical shooter, is getting a sequel. Launching on PS5, PS4, and basically everything else on 8th August 2024, SteamWorld Heist 2 is a direct follow-up to the original, swapping out spaceships for a sea-faring adventure but retaining the ricochet-based strategy fans know and love.

You play as Captain Leeway, and must sail the seas, gather a ragtag crew of bots, and solve the mystery of a harmful water crisis. As well as the turn-based, ricochet-heavy tactical gameplay, new for the sequel is a job system that lets you outfit your crew with unique abilities. Between missions, you'll sail your submarine around a world map, engaging in real-time battles against enemy vessels.

It looks to be another charming adventure in the SteamWorld universe. Are you excited about SteamWorld Heist 2? Let us know in the comments section below.
