SteamWorld Heist 2 will be released on August 8, 2024, a date that was announced alongside the reveal.

SteamWorld Heist 2 platforms

While the game was announced during the April 17 Nintendo Indie World Showcase, SteamWorld Heist 2 will not be a platform exclusive.

SteamWorld Heist 2 will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam at launch. Additionally, the developers have announced it will be playable on Steam Deck.

This is especially good news for Xbox users, as the first SteamWorld Heist never came to that platform. While an Xbox port was planned, the developers put it on hold in 2016 citing other projects and the small size of the studio.

SteamWorld Heist 2 trailer

SteamWorld Heist 2’s announcement trailer debuted during the Nintendo Indie World Showcase on April 17, 2024.

SteamWorld Heist 2 gameplay & story

Like its predecessor, SteamWorld Heist 2 is a turn-based tactics game. Rather than being a space adventure, though, this game takes place on the high seas. As the game’s Steam description says, players will “Join Captain Leeway and his ragtag crew as they uncover the enigmatic menace threatening the Great Sea.” Based on this, players should expect a pirate-themed adventure with naval combat and plenty of loot.

SteamWorld 2 Heist’s gameplay will be familiar to those who played the original. Once again, players will have to take on enemies in turn-based gun battles, which often require you to aim your weapon in creative ways so the bullets ricochet and hit rival robots.

New to the sequel is the job system, which gives crewmates special abilities and additional options for customization and strategy. The reveal trailer shows there will be at least 6 classes including Brawler, Boomer, Engineer, Sniper, Reaper, and Flanker.

On the topic of customizations, SteamWorld Heist 2 will be bringing back its predecessor’s focus on hats. Players will again be able to shoot off enemy hats to wear themselves, with other hats available to purchase. The trailer shows crews wearing matching top hats, fruit hats, and fish heads, indicating that there will be plenty of quirky options that allow SteamWorld Heist players to adventure in style.
