Dragon Quest Builders 2 is soon to release on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo on July 12th, the follow up to the hit Dragon Quest themed block building game.
The Children of Hargon, a destruction worshipping cult, have unleashed darkness upon the world and it’s up to you as a Builder along with your trusty companion Malroth to bring back the light. Based on an alternate history version of the Story of the original Dragon Quest 2, where the villains were victorious.
With vastly bigger worlds to explore than its predecessor and an 8-bit styled mini map to accompany it, you’ll find lots of fun to be had in exploration. As well as more to explore, there’s now a first person mode to help when it comes to looking around those tight spaces and small dungeons. This can be toggled between at any time time, so really feel free to experiment and see which view suits your playstyle.
There has also been a quality of life improvement where your characters’ sword and hammer are assigned to different buttons, meaning you no longer have to scroll through your equipment. As well as this players can now also sprint and glide around using a parachute, Super Mario World style.
For those of you who like to team up with friends and tackle things a a group, Dragon Quest Builders 2 offers four player co-op.
