New Warhammer 40k PowerWash Simulator DLC will be released on February 27, letting players scrub the dirt and bits of ground-up heretics from the sides of Imperial war machines in the meditative cleaning sim. A new trailer, revealed on Monday, shows off the custom models and environments that will be added to the game.

Whereas the PowerWash Simulator base game takes place in ordinary garages, and arms players with mundane, terrestrial power-washers, the upcoming ‘Warhammer 40k Special Pack’ will recreate the grimdark environs of the Warhammer 40k universe, transporting you to the hold of a cathedral-like Imperium of Man spaceship in orbit around holy Mars.

Players take on the role of an Adeptus Mechanicus adept, their holy duty to cleanse battlefield grime and heretical daubings from every nook and cranny on their revered mechanical charges using a Mark 2 Aqua-Santica Arquebus power washer. Five vehicles await your ministrations:

We have high hopes that the excellent voice over work in the trailer (which plays the situation completely straight) carries over into the DLC.

While we were initially a little sceptical about the crossover, seeing it in action has made us pretty keen to blast water into all the hard-to-reach places of an Imperial Knight. It’s also got us wondering why there isn’t already a Warhammer 40k crossover for Viscera Cleanup Detail.

If, after trying this, you develop a taste for zen games, our sister site PCGamesN can recommend plenty of relaxing games that will help you unwind.

If you’d rather be making a mess than cleaning one up, we heartily recommend last year’s retro-FPS Boltgun: check out our Warhammer 40k Boltgun review for full thoughts on that uneven, but riotously enjoyable, Warhammer 40k game.
