Q-Games announced Apple Arcade party-game brawler PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe is coming to PC via Epic Games Store and Steam.
All the latest details are available below via Q-Games:
Players take on the role of the Scrappers, a team of humanoid trash collectors in a not-so-distant future. The goal is to clean up a city overrun with trash following the end of humanity and collection is only half of the job… Trash means cash in Junktown and rival squads will attempt to interfere and bag the rewards for themselves.
With online multiplayer support for up to 4 players alongside the option for local co-op, PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe provides multiple exciting play modes alongside a series of frantic mini-games. Players are encouraged to compete against the clock to collect as much garbage as possible and the higher the stack, the bigger the bonus, with a huge selection of characters, weapons and truck parts to unlock.
PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe is the latest installment in the award-winning PixelJunk franchise and follows the exclusive launch of the original PixelJunk Scrappers in partnership with Apple Arcade. The PC version builds on the acclaimed Apple Arcade release and has been expanded to include an array of additional features including new combat methods, the addition of weapon drops, multiple level adjustments and the inclusion of score challenges across all stages.
“Bringing PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe to PC has been a real labor of love and we’re looking forward to welcoming even more players to the streets of Junktown,” said Maeta Kazushi, Creative Director at Q-Games. “We’ve been working hard to create the ultimate experience for players on PC and have made changes that really elevate the gameplay and make for a super fun time!”
Kazushi added, “We’ve also spent time optimizing for Steam Deck and the game feels amazing to play on the go. We’ll have more details to share soon, but our whole team is really excited for the PixelJunk series to be back on PC!”
“The core gameplay elements of collecting trash, throwing it and piling it up remain the same and are just as fun, but we’ve added new features and adjusted a lot of elements to make it even more enjoyable,” said Arioka Taku, Game Director of PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe. “We hope many players will conquer Junktown once and for all, and clean up the world’s trash!”
