Dragon Quest Builders 2 makes its anticipated debut on Xbox, two years after its release on other platforms. But as they say, better late than never.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 Xbox Release Date: May 4, 2021
The fun and creative Dragon Quest Builders 2 arrives on Xbox One on May 4, 2021. This comes two years after its release on PC, PS4, and the Nintendo Switch. It will also be available through backward compatibility on Xbox Series X/S. On the same date, the game also joins the Xbox Game Pass service. Gamers on the platform may avail themselves of the service and gain access to a plethora of games on their Xbox consoles.
Dragon Quest Builders 2‘s PC Release Date was on December 10, 2019, but the game took a while to arrive on Xbox. But Xbox owners shouldn’t feel shortchanged. The Xbox One version of the game comes with all of the previous DLCs, free of charge. Hence, players know that they will get the best version of the game right off the bat.
The original DQ Builders wowed critics and fans alike when it released in 2016 on PS3, PS4, and PS Vita. Its popularity allowed Square Enix to release the game two years later on Nintendo Switch, which also did well commercially. Fan requests for new features to be added justified a sequel. The game became a hit with the fans, selling over a million copies as of August 2019.
Just like the more popular Minecraft, Dragon Quest Builders 2 lets players harvest blocks to use as building and crafting materials. But as an added mechanic, the game also has combat, a story, and role-playing elements incorporated. Perhaps the best aspect of the game comes in its multiplayer, which allows up to four players to journey together. The game’s multiplayer also supports cross-platform play between all of the platforms it’s available in, allowing everyone to join the fun from anywhere.
