The Wandering Village sets foot on Xbox and Game Pass

The Wandering Village comes to Xbox and Game Pass

The premise may seem a little strange, but we were immediately interested in The Wandering Village. And now, after a few good months via Steam Early Access, it’s time for The Wandering Village to set foot on Xbox. It’s making the most of Game Pass as it goes. 

Game Preview AND Game Pass

Available today on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC is The Wandering Village. Still in Early Access form, this Xbox Game Preview title is far from finished, as the development team at Stray Fawn Studio open up their strange little survival/city-builder to the console world. 

Making the most of the power of Game Pass as it goes, should you embark on a jouney to The Wandering Village, you’ll be sure to find something pretty unique. See, this thrusts you into a world that is on the brink, taken over by toxic spores. In fact, the only really safe place is on the back of a giant wandering creature – a Onbu. 

It’s here where you decide to set up home, taking charge of a group of survivors as they make the most of the situation at hand. As their leader, you’ll need to ensure that the settlement they are creating is one that is ripe for civilisation, all as you create a bit of a symbiotic relationship with your host. 

Does The Wandering Village appeal to you?

Standard city-building and survival elements come to the fore in The Wandering Village. Just they will take place on the back of that Onbu. How that goes is anyones guess, but having previously built up some love on Steam, we’re excited to see how this fares on Xbox. 

We’ll be looking to run a preview of The Wandering Village at the earliest opportunity, reviewing in full once the Early Access / Game Preview tags are removed.

Key features!

Until that time, the key features are already pretty plentiful…

  • Build your village – A functioning village is the basis of your survival. Build your settlement and expand it over the creature’s back. Plan production chains and optimize them to utilize the limited space as efficiently as possible. Create a society that can overcome any challenge.
  • Live on the creature’s back – Living on the back of another organism comes with its own set of challenges. Will you live in symbiosis, bond with the creature and survive on mutual trust? Or will you become a parasite, only aiming to ensure a better life for your villagers? The choice is yours.
  • Discover different biomes – Travel through a multitude of different biomes and adapt your village to their unique opportunities and threats. Scout your environments and send out foraging missions to gather rare resources and ancient artifacts.
  • Research new technologies – Remnants of the old world hold knowledge that has long been forgotten, but can be unearthed by your villagers. Find and research these technologies, but use them wisely, as progress can be a double-edged sword.
  • Survive the wastelands – Ensure the survival of both your villagers and your Onbu, even though poisonous spores, merciless weather, bloodsucking parasites and many more challenges mean that the odds are often stacked against you.

The Wandering Village is on the Xbox Store. It’s available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, and via Game Pass. Just remember, this is a Game Preview title, meaning bugs and glitches may occur and that the overall experience could well change on a dime. Steam will sort you out if you prefer the PC angle.

Game Description

This game is a work in progress. It may or may not change over time or release as a final product. Purchase only if you are comfortable with the current state of the unfinished game.

In a world where mysterious plants are spreading all over the earth, emitting toxic spores as they grow, a small group of survivors seeks shelter on the back of a giant, wandering creature they call ‘Onbu’. Become their leader, build their settlement and form a symbiotic relationship with the creature to survive together in this hostile, yet beautiful post-apocalyptic world that now surrounds you.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
