Square Enix and Xbox announced today that Dragon Quest Builders 2 will be available for Xbox Game Pass subscribers on May 4. The game will also be available on PC thanks to Xbox Play Anywhere support.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is an RPG sandbox game previously released on PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. The game takes players on the role of stopping the worshippers of an ancient evil. Players will explore huge islands, gather and craft with materials, design towns, level them up, and defend them from monsters and bosses alongside townspeople.
Builders 2 is the acclaimed block-building RPG from Dragon Quest series creators Yuji Horii, character designer Akira Toriyama, and composer Koichi Sugiyama. It features a compelling story, charming characters, and the potential for incredible creativity, explained Duncan Heaney, Content Communications Manager, Square Enix.
At the start, you’ll take on the role of a young apprentice builder who washes up on the Isle of Awakening. There you encounter the spirited Malroth, a mysterious youth with no memory of his past, who joins you as a friend and bodyguard.
Together, you’ll explore vast islands full of resources to gather and monsters to battle. You’ll help townsfolk, develop your skills to become a Master Builder, and take on the Children of Hargon – a dangerous cult that celebrates destruction.
You’ll take on the role of a builder, one of those rare individuals who have the power to create and construct. You’ll explore multiple islands, build a community, take on requests from townsfolk, construct buildings and farms, and battle Dragon Quest series monsters …or you could ignore all that responsibility and make yourself a small city or something else instead. It’s entirely up to you!
If you don’t have an Xbox Game Pass subscription, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is available for pre-order on the Microsoft Store for $49.99.
