LONDON – August 13th, 2019 – PC Building Simulator started as a free tech demo on before it went on to sell more than 750,000 copies as a fully-fledged title from publisher The Irregular Corporation. Now Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch owners can build and repair PCs with real licensed parts. What a world we live in.

In PC Building Simulator you’re the ultimate PC builder: run your own PC repair workshop and take care of everything from simple diagnosis and upgrades, to creating bespoke, boutique creations that anyone would love to own.

In story mode, you take over your Uncle Tim's PC workshop after he mysteriously skips town. You'll need to successfully repair and upgrade customers' machines just to keep the lights on. Start small, then go big as you master some of the most technical elements of PC building, creating some seriously impressive machines in the process. 

Builders are also given free rein to create artful, powerful or downright mean machines in the game’s Free Build mode. Using the most prestigious brands in the PC market: choose your case, build it out and pimp it big with LEDs and colour-coded cables - your work is your art, after all. 


PC Building Simulator incorporates over 1000 real world parts from manufacturers including Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, ASUS, Deepcool, EKWB and NZXT. The game also features realistic BIOS and OS simulation, licensed 3DMark benchmarking and simulated overclocking, resulting in an incredibly extensive list of options and configurations for players looking to simulate real-world builds as closely as possible.
