Developer vBlank Entertainment has announced Shakedown Hawaii is finally coming to Steam.
The game has been exclusive to the Epic Game Store for over a year since last May, but it’s now coming to Steam on October 20th, alongside a big update for the game.
The new update brings with it a whole new difficulty mode, new types of shakedowns, a quick menu for upgrades, and “much more.” Fans can expect the content update to land on PC first on both Steam and the Epic Games Store, with console versions to follow (they need more testing and certification first).
In case you missed it, we did a thorough review on the game and found it a pretty solid, retro Grand Theft Auto-style action game, with a funny story to boot. You can read our full review here.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
The entire island is up for grabs… or at least, could be with the right business model.
Shakedown: Hawaii combines open world action and empire building. Build a “legitimate” corporation by completing open world missions, acquiring businesses, sabotaging competitors, “re-zoning” land, and shaking down shops for protection money.
Shakedown: Hawaii parodies big business, and the most absurd business practices that go alongside. You’re the CEO, and questionable subsidiaries, misleading ads, fine print, hidden service fees, and marketing spin are the tools of your trade.
From the boardroom to the streets, build your corporate empire and destroy the competition. It’s business in the front, and bodies in the back… in Shakedown: Hawaii.
Shakedown Hawaii has been available for Windows PC (via Epic Game Store), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
