Dragon Quest Builders

Square Enix is bringing Dragon Quest Builders to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in North America and Europe this October, the company announced. The PlayStation 4 version will launch at retail and the PS Vita version via the PlayStation Store.

The block-building RPG will see players use their creativity to gather and combine a variety of unique tools and materials in order to rebuild Alefgard, a realm destroyed by the evil ruler of monsters, the Dragonlord.

The game offers sandbox-style gameplay combined with an “immersive story” and allows players to interact with a host of characters and monsters. Players can create an “infinite variety” of structures, in response to “extravagant requests” from citizens in need of new homes. It promises a control system that is both “easy-to-learn and quick-to-master.”

Overview

Generations ago, the realm of Alefgard was plunged into darkness when the hero fated to slay the terrible and treacherous Dragonlord, the ruler of all monsters, was instead tricked into joining him. Through this vile villain’s magical machinations, mankind was scattered to the winds and robbed of the power to build. With even the idea of creativity relegated to mere legend, the people of Alefgard wander the ruins of their former home, scrounging and scavenging in the dust to survive.

But now, a legendary figure arises – a hero chosen by the Goddess herself – who sets out to return the power of creation to the people of Alefgard. Only when the wonder of imagination has been returned to the land will mankind be able to overthrow the evil Dragonlord once and for all!
