'PC Building Simulator' Early Access Update Adds Antec High Performance Cases

PC Building Simulator puts players in the shoes of a PC builder, working within a shop to create a fully functioning gaming PC.

PC Building Simulator puts you in charge of your very own PC Building and Repair shop, where you must complete challenges to build your reputation and progress through your PC Building career.

Experiment with a large array of detailed and accurately rendered components from motherboards to CPU's that respond just as they would in real life. Learn how to install these components, using tools such as thermal paste, cables and standoffs to prevent short circuits and breakdowns. Fully animated installations let the players see exactly where each part slots into the computer so you can learn to build your very own gaming PC in real life.

The game provides a tutorial system, which guides players step by step through the PC building process. Using detailed instructions, the simulator explains each component and function and allows players the freedom to preview their own creations and play independently when they feel they are able.

The Irregular Corporation is delighted to announce Antec has joined the PC Building Simulator project as a partner. Antec creates high-performance PC components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets.

An update to the game today will enable players to kick start building their dream Antec PC with the DF500, part of their Dark Fleet gaming series, which features RGB integration and a tempered glass panel so you can admire your flashy builds. In future updates, the smooth and streamlined P6, P7, P8 and P110 cases will offer sleek performance and features such as space-efficient interiors, direct airflow cooling systems, dust filtration and more, perfect for those who are seeking a high quality rig. All aforementioned cases will be recreated and fully functional within the game.

We are very happy to be part of this exciting game”, says Lee Bryan, Sales Manager UK. “To virtually build the rig of your dreams, troubleshoot, simulate a business and, last but not least, get to use officially licensed components from notable manufacturers sounds like a perfect game for passionate users.

Hardware manufacturers such as MSI, CORSAIR, COOLER MASTER, EVGA, NZXT, ARCTIC, SILVERSTONE, RAIJINTEK, TEAM GROUP LTD and more have allowed true-to-life models of their products to be included. More partners will be added throughout the game’s early access period and beyond.  In addition to the hardware partners, PC Building Simulator have also teamed up with UL Benchmarks (formerly Futuremark) so players can benchmark their in-game systems using a simulation of 3DMark.
