Hello PC Builders!
We’re heading into the end of the year and it’s time for another update – introducing PC Building Simulator 2 v1.6! In today’s update, we’re sharpening up our peripheral options, unpacking some of the latest cases, adding two much anticipated graphics cards, and seeing a knight about a shovel.
First though, isn’t it time we got together and advanced our micro devices?
Decorator Theme: AMD
Give your workshop a ‘red team’ makeover as we join forces with one of the more venerable names in semiconductors, AMD.
As creators of both high-performance graphics and computing technology, today’s decorator theme pays futuristic homage to the Ryzen and Radeon maker, complete with adjustable lighting.
Note: Synthwave soundtrack not included.
New Partner: MAINGEAR
Founded in 2002, MAINGEAR aims to take some of the stress out of US-based PC Building, even going as far as to host a 3D simulated custom PC configurator.
Not content to let them keep their achievements to themselves, today we’ve joined forces as fellow enthusiasts to bring their MG-1 case to PC Building Simulator 2.
