Curious Expedition 2’s Latest DLC Recruits SteamWorld Heist
Thunderful Games and Maschinen-Mensch announced new DLC for Curious Expedition 2. The Robots of Lux DLC features a collaboration with Image & Form Games’s SteamWorld Heist and will release on September 15, 2022, for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
Robots of Lux sees players investigating around Paris to uncover mysteries and help push engineering further forward. It will add two new playable characters, Piper Faraday (from SteamWorld Heist) and the animal-taming Naturalist. It will also include three humanoid recruits in the form of SteamWorld Heist’s Billy Gill and Valentine Butterbolt, plus the Yeti, as well as mountable animal recruit Robot Chameleon. The new content is available in both Campaign Mode and Director Mode, with other additions including a new Old Theatre facility and new equipment and items.
Curious Expedition 2 is a narrative roguelike set in a reimagined late 19th century. The game takes place in an alternate world where mysterious islands have begun to appear and vanish, with explorer clubs funding expeditions to bring back treasures to the 1889 World Fair in Paris. It features procedurally-generated worlds and storytelling with players required to manage their expedition’s resources and sanity.
