Digital farmers on Xbox won’t feel left out for much longer.
Earlier today, publisher Natsume revealed that the latest entry in its popular grow-and-raise series, Harvest Moon: One World, will be coming to Microsoft’s ever-expanding family of consoles, including the Series X. Previously, the game was only available on Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Nintendo’s Switch.
The entry price is $49.99. While all four existing DLC packs— including something obviously awesome called the ‘Mythical Wild Animals Pack’—will be available at launch, they won’t be included with the base game. Kind of disappointing, as I think it’s classy when companies include previously published content for free with later versions. Would have been a nice touch. Oh well.
Pre-orders are live right now on GameStop’s website with a listed release date of July 27, so maybe copies will begin to ship a little earlier than forecasted in press information.
One World’s premise is less localized than past entries and more about varied globetrotting, wherein you help reseed the planet after the Harvest Goddess skips town. I never got around to playing the PS4 or Switch versions, but it sounds like the perfect relaxing way to spend a lazy weekend. We all could use a little stress relief, I think.
Despite its rather mediocre Metacritic scores, I’m still hoping to finally give One World a go once it lands on Xbox later this summer.
