Square Enix has released a new video that details the upcoming Dragon Quest Builders, heading to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on October 11 in North America and October 14 in Europe. Dragon Quest Builders aims to merge the creative worlds of block-building games and the adventures found in RPGs.
Titled “What is Dragon Quest Builders?” the video introduces the basics of building, like gathering materials and crafting items in order to build anything the player can imagine. It also shows how players will complete quests to help friendly NPCs while taking on the evil Dragonlord to restore peace to the shattered realm.
Unfortunately for those that were hoping the game would be Minecraft set in the Dragon Quest world, you may be disappointed to hear that it lacks multiplayer. But for those that look forward to a single-player experience, you can also grab a Day One Edition of the game that includes the following exclusive building materials: Springtide Sprinkles Recipe, Slimy Block Recipe and Gold Block Recipe. The building materials can only be used in Terra Incognita (Free Build) mode. The Square Enix store is also offering a pre-order sweepstakes for a chance to win a PlayStation 4 console.
The game was originally released in Japan earlier this year on January 28, 2016.
