Hello PC Builders,

Today we welcome another hardware partner to the game, the addition of ADATA (and its XPG range) to the game brings with it a whole range of high speed DDR4 RAM, super fast SSDs and even faster M.2 SSDs!

That’s right, this update also allows you to add M.2 SSDs to your epic PC builds!

Build v0.8.7 Highlights

M.2 Support

M.2 SSD drive support means even faster storage solutions are available to supercharge your new PC builds.

Controller Support

In this update we have added controller support for a wide range of controllers to greater increase accessibility for PC Building Simulator plus make it easier should you wish to chill out on the sofa to play! Controller buttons can be adjusted via the key bindings screen but there is bound to be a few issues with such a feature so please do report any you find in the usual places!
