Hello minors! At Code Horizon and Discovery, we’re proud to announce that Gold Rush: The Game will be available for PlayStation 4 on May 28. This original gold mining experience is based on Discovery Channel’s No.1 show, Gold Rush. On launch day, you’ll have access to all playable content released so far (including the DLC). The goal is: work hard, dig deep, explore the world, become the richest person in Alaska.
Gold rush: the game is a realistic gold mining simulation game. Start with a simple bucket, drip pan, and hire your first concession when you start mining for gold. You’ll be able to sit behind the wheels of several highly detailed vehicles (like a bulldozer, drill, front loader, or excavator) and dig for gold on one of four unique mining areas with fully deformable terrain.
Your plan is simple: locate and plan your operation, purchase new levels of mining equipment, and let your gold business grow. But remember – every real business will face obstacles. Machines will break down, weather conditions will affect your operation, and interest on the leased property will increase. To make ends meet, you’ll need to embrace the four-season cycle and think about making some extra cash. The harsh Alaskan winters impact prices and even decrease the durability of your machines. Oh, and don’t be surprised if a bear steals some of your gear.
Gold rush: the game involves digging for gold using advanced machinery and taking care of your mining company. Familiarize yourself with the Wash Plant, Gold Nugget, or Wave Table. Manage water pressure and the fuel system to help machines run properly. And don’t forget to hire workers and let them grow your business!
If you are a competitive player, we have a little something for you. Ranked mode (leaderboards) will pit you against other gold diggers – who will come out on top this time? A season is usually around a month in real life, so there is plenty of time to compete. Anytime we add a unique buff or obstacle to make the experience more engaging, like a reduction on a particular claim rental or an increase in the breakdown rate for specific items. If you manage to make it into the top 10, we have special in-game rewards. So what are you waiting for? Let’s mine for gold.
You can choose your own playstyle: explore Alaska with the easy mode enabled (everything costs $ 1) or try your luck in the hardest ranked mode, with globally shared leaderboards. Whatever your call, be sure to pick up the game on May 28. For pricing, availability, and additional details, see your regional PS Store.
Work hard, dig deep – become a gold miner!
