One of the biggest surprises of 2020 that has everyone excited is the new voxel-based heist game Teardown by Dennis Gustafsson. It’s a fully destructible world with an interactive environment that you can manipulate all you want to create the perfect heist. And now we know when it is officially releasing.

Teardown will launch into Steam Early Access on October 29th for $20. There’ll be a campaign that sounds absolutely wild to be honest, working your way up from in debt, to revenge, betrayal, and even insurance fraud, naturally. There’ll also be a sandbox mode with unlimited resources and a custom creation mode where you can create anything with the free voxel modelling software included.

Some vague system requirements have been released but according to the game’s official website you’ll need a GTX 1070 and a Core i7 processor to run at its best, though you can still use older hardware to run it. What’s interesting is that Teardown will be using ray tracing technology for lighting, but does not require an RTX GPU.

What do you think? Are you excited for Teardown? Will you be getting it in Early Access? Let us know!

Ah yes, finally, a worthy opponent for the RTX 3090! /s


In all honestly, this looks like it's gonna be a good game. I wonder if ray tracing is gonna need an RTX GPU, and if not, how will they pull that off?

Cloudpunk let's me fly cars through the city
Teardown let's me wreck everything
indie gaming is more exciting than AAA gaming at this point and that is crazy

Why do people compare this to Minecraft?


It's not even trying to beat it. It's a completely different game altogether.

It's not about beating it. I was mainly reefing to how it looks visually.

Blocks. Every game with blocks is compared to Minecraft, no matter what genre it is. (an example is Trove)

It doesn't really look like something I'd be into, but I definitely like the more unique and enhanced visual aesthetic compared to other voxel based games..... instead of looking like an Atari-2600 game as most voxel based games do, it looks more like..... a Colecovision game? Maybe NES, but DEFINITELY not quite in the league of Master System! xD

I like destruction model, but I do hope they will do more than just heists with it. I am not overly excited, but I will keep an eye on it, if it ever gets developed to final version. I mean just messing around in it with destruction model could be ton of fun. Bit like with Red Faction, though there you didn't even need to buy it to get that, demo did perfect job for it. :-D

Basically a better looking Minecraft, but the trailer/gameplay left me with more questions than answers.

The fact that you people compare it to Minecraft is stupid

Graphically, both games are incomparable. You could compare this game better with the blocky sections of cloudpunk. Trove is a game that can be compared better with Minecraft in terms of graphics. Both have roughly the same block sizes compared to the character.

When you say "basically a better looking Minecraft", that implies you're talking about more than just graphics. Like it's the same gameplay, but with better graphics. Which is pretty dumb.

A fair argument, tho the trailer didn't exactly give a ton of information + the game is in an unfinished state/Early Access (according to Steam).
