Here is an overview of the game and Expansion Pass, via XSEED Games:
Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town offers a cozy life / simulation experience with the series’ signature charm, taking players to the charming seaside burg of Olive Town on a quest to revitalize their grandfather’s dilapidated farm. An untamed wilderness awaits that can be customized down to the very tile, and further exploration yields fantastical lands—Earth Sprites lead the way to gardens where the seasons never change, an island in the sky, or even the inside of a volcano! The nearby port town offers delights for hardworking farmers with festivals, charming shops, and the promise of new friendships that may turn into romance. Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town also offers such fresh features as: quests to revitalize and expand the town, fantastical transportation options such as a motorcycle or a wolf, and a first-person photography mode, and so much more!
The downloadable content Expansion Pass features the “Animal Attire,” “School Uniforms,” and “Yukata Set” outfit packs, the “Olive Town Mystery Files” and “The Legendary Sprite Dance” sub-scenarios, and the “Windswept Falls,” “Terracotta Oasis,” and “Twilight Isle” Expansion Packs—all three of which include two additional marriage candidates from past games in the Story of Seasons series. Three additional costume sets inspired by previous Story of Seasons entries (“Pete and Claire’s Overalls,” “Yuto and Naomi’s Hoodies,” and “Henry and Holly’s Western Attire”) will also be included with all Expansion Pass purchases.
