The sequel to Dragon Quest Builders – a surprise hit from 2016 – is out now. Dragon Quest Builders 2 introduces a new expansive world, brand new co-op features, and online multiplayer for the first time. Up to four friends can play and create together.
Builders can download a free demo through the PlayStation Store, which introduces the new story and characters. Dragon Quest Builders 2 is available for $59.99 on both Nintendo Switch and PS4.
According to publisher Square Enix:
Players take on the role of a young apprentice builder who finds themselves washed up on the Isle of Awakening alongside Malroth, a mysterious youth suffering from amnesia. Together, the two explore different islands while developing skills to become a “Master Builder” by helping townsfolk, crafting materials and fighting off enemies.
Square Enix also plans to release three separate DLC packs shortly after launch, giving access to new recipes, hairstyles, clothing, and all-new areas to explore. The Season Pass grants access to all three DLC packs for $20.99.
Below we have descriptions for each of the DLC packs:
- Hotto Stuff Pack – Includes more than 40 recipes to help players design and decorate structures in the style of the Hotto Steppe – a popular resting area in a distant land. Players will also gain access to an all-new island with the materials needed to build these new recipes.
- Aquarium Pack – In this new pack, a fishing island awaits players where they can learn how to catch and breed 40 different fish that can be added to their own DIY aquarium. Unlock an additional tool, the fishing rod, as well as customization options and apparel fit for a water-bound adventure.
