Whilst the arrival of the Virtual Villagers into the gaming world isn’t a new one – after all, the series has been rolling around the PC and mobile scene for years – the release of Virtual Villagers Origins 2 on Xbox One as a free-to-play title is a new experience. And it is thanks to this new launch that us Xbox console gamers get the chance to craft, farm, and build a thriving village – and all for free. Oh, and to seal the deal, you can have a Lemur for a pet. What more could you ever want!
Available to download with zero price attached, Virtual Villagers Origins 2 on Xbox One comes about via the team at Last Day of Work, seeing us heading to the mystical island of Isola, as the series makes lands on a proper console for the very first time. And from there on out you’ll be left to work as you see fit, becoming a master of your own village and taking care of everything that entails, all in real-time.
Building a new town is just the start of things though, and caring for your villagers and their needs from the get-go is the very least you should expect to be actioning. You see, alongside that you’ll need to head on out and explore the charming island in order to gather up resources, which in turn will let you build some more. With puzzles to solve and mysterious secrets to unravel, before training your villagers in the dark arts, if you’re after a new gaming experience in which you can kick back and just get on with things, Virtual Villagers Origins 2 may well be the one for you.
The fact that daily rewards will encourage you to go back time and time again, and that this is a game that promises you the opportunity to take home some delightful pets – seriously, who doesn’t want a Lemur hanging around in their world? – should just be the icing on the free to download cake.
If you wish to give Virtual Villagers Origins 2 on Xbox One a shot, the Xbox Store will sort out the usual download. You may as well give it a whirl for free, no?
