Dragon Quest Builders 2 is coming to Xbox and Xbox Game Pass next week
Following the appearance of a Microsoft Store listing over the weekend, Microsoft and Square Enix have announced that Dragon Quest Builders 2 is coming to Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, and Xbox Game Pass (Console, Cloud, and PC).
The block-building RPG places players in the role of a young apprentice builder who meets a mysterious youth called Malroth after washing up on the Isle of Awakening. Alongside Malroth, players will need to gather resources, defeat monsters, and help out the townsfolk in preparation for a fight against the Children of Hargon, a cult that celebrates destruction.
“Don’t let the name fool you, despite the 2, the game has a new story that’s a great entry point for newcomers to the series,” Duncan Heaney, content communications manager at Square Enix, added in an Xbox Wire post. “That said, if you’re a Dragon Quest veteran, you may notice more than a few connections to other games in the series.”
The Xbox version of the game includes “the Hotto Stuff Pack, Modernist Pack, Aquarium Pack, Designer’s Sunglasses, Historic Headwear, Dragonlord’s Throne, and more,” according to Square Enix.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 launches May 4th for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. As mentioned above, the game will also be joining Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC on the same day.
