PC Building Simulator Update v1.2 - Swapping peripherals, a remade workshop and a whole lot more is live now!

Hello PC Builders,

The team has been busy making a lot of changes to PC Building Simulator in order to be able to add the ability to swap peripherals such as keyboards and mice along with improving other various bits and pieces (some more visible than others) to make the game a bit more polished.

Lot’s to get through, so let's get right to the update!

Build v1.2 Highlights

Swapping Peripherals

Support for swapping peripherals is now live! In this update, we are kicking off with a wide range of Razer products which you can use to further customise your workbenches with. The items you can swap are:
  • Keyboards
  • Mice
  • Mouse Mats
  • Headsets

Please Note: Large (extended) mouse mats and headsets are currently only available to swap on your main office desk.
With this support now complete, we will add new peripherals in future updates.

Workshop Makeover

In order to enable the ability to swap more items on workbenches we had to make some major changes to the current environment we all know and love(??). So we decided this was a good opportunity to rebuild it to support these kinds of changes properly. The overall layout and design have been kept but various cosmetic and functional improvements have been made. For example, there is now an extra light switch near the door!

Brand New Razer Workshop DLC

In addition to the remade workshop, we have collaborated with Razer to create a brand-new workshop themed around all things Razer. This new space brings a fresh, open layout for you to run your PC business in and once purchased you will be able to switch between either workshop as much as you like in either Career or Free Build modes.

Extra Cases for the Overclocked Edition

Owners of our existing Overclocked Edition DLC will now have access to two new case designs using new artwork designed by Brock Hofer:

NZXT H500 - Split

NZXT H700i - Organ Collector

Free DLC Cases

To celebrate the upcoming launch of two games being published by The Irregular Corporation we have created and release two new cases as Free DLC:

H700i - Deadstick

H700i - Good Company
