The physical boxed edition of SteamWorld Collection is coming to retail in October, publisher by Rising Star Games
LONDON, UK – 25 August 2016 – Rising Star Games today announced it has the honour of publishing SteamWorld Collection, from acclaimed developer Image & Form, in October.
Featuring two critically-applauded, award-winning and massive-scoring games – SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist – in the same package for the very first time, SteamWorld Collection is published by Rising Star Games on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system in USA, Canada, South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Middle East. Rising Star Games also publishes the title on Wii U™ in USA, Canada and South America.
SteamWorld Collection features 2013’s seminal SteamWorld Dig, and this year’s smash hit SteamWorld Heist, presented together as a double-dose of SteamWorld satisfaction.
Drill down into a platform game mining adventure full of secrets, treasure and terrors in SteamWorld Dig, and discover a world of steam-driven robots, inspired by Western and Steampunk themes. SteamWorld Heist on the other hand offers turn-based strategy with a twist: manually aim the guns of your robots, allowing for insane skill shots and bullet-bouncing action. Board, loot and shoot your way through enemy spaceships and upgrade your recruits with unique abilities, weapons and, of course, stylish hats!
