October 3, 2023 - FuturLab and nDreams are thrilled to announce that the eagerly anticipated PowerWash Simulator VR will be splash landing on to Meta Quest 3, Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest Pro on November 2. From today, would-be washers can pre-order PowerWash Simulator VR from the Meta Quest store and receive a pair of exclusive cat-themed in-game gloves at launch – the purrfect power washing accessory.
PowerWash Simulator VR adds an extra layer of immersion and interactivity to the super soothing simulator through a host of VR-specific features. Blasting away grime feels even more satisfying thanks to precise 1:1 motion control delivered through the Quest Touch controllers while 360-degree immersion means the town of Muckingham has never felt more alive… or dirtier.
New features exclusive to the VR version dial up the immersion even further. Players can pick out the perfect outfit and the right equipment from the back of the iconic PowerWash van and change nozzles on the fly with the all-new tool belt.

With assistance from nDreams, we’re thrilled to be able to carve out this virtual space for our community to relax, wash away their worries, or just kick back with friends.”
“FuturLab have done an amazing job bringing the soothing joy of PowerWash Simulator to VR,” said David Corless, VP of Publishing at nDreams. “The support and excitement for this game from both the VR community and PowerWash fans has been incredible, and we’re excited to let them run amuck in VR in just under a month’s time.”
