This has been the play Square Enix has been waiting for. Acquiring publishing rights to Tomb Raider and PowerWash Simulator for the most ambitious crossover in gaming history. That’s right. Later this month, PowerWashers will be able to clean Croft Manor.
This week, developer FuturLab announced that there will be a new crossover mission when PowerWash Simulator launches for PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. It will include five missions, all of which take place at Croft Manor. A short trailer shows four of the five jobs will have to do.
There is a job to clean a display room of Lara’s many treasures. Objects include a T Rex statue, suits of ancient armor, as well as ancient blades and artifacts. There are also cleaning jobs that take place on the exterior of the mansion. One appears to be the manor itself, another is a training course, and another is a pair of vehicles.

There is a fifth job that we have not yet seen in the trailer. We will just have to wait until the end of the month to see what it is. The manor does not appear to be a recreation of how it was depicted in the recent Tomb Raider games. However, there will hopefully be some easter eggs and nods to previous Tomb Raider games.
PowerWash Simulator is available now for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. It will be available on PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch on January 31st. This will also be the release date of the Tomb Raider Free Special Pack.
