Update 0.4 has arrived for PowerWash Simulator, and here is the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch.

The first big content update since the game released in Early Access was released today for PowerWash Simulator, one of the most satisfying games you can play right now. It's a game where you basically clean dirt from different environments with your pressure washer in order to get more money so you can buy more pressure washers, cleaning fluids, or other minor upgrades. Content updates include new levels, a new game mode, quality of life changes, and bug fixes. In addition to all these changes, they also fixed 2 major issues that some players were experiencing, including possible save data corruption if the game suddenly crashed and the inability to clean dirt if playing on a low-end PC.



Here's everything new with the PowerWash Simulator 0.4 update.
