For the most part, it’s been the mobile scene which has been most fruitful for the Farm Frenzy franchise, with a huge number of titles having rocked up on both iOS and Android. Now though the ALAWAR productions have come to console, with ChiliDog Interactive helping push out the latest game in the series – Farm Frenzy: Refreshed – to Xbox.
Available to purchase and download right now, Farm Frenzy: Refreshed brings the world famous casual farming game to Xbox for the very first time, going up against the likes of Farm Together and Harvest Moon: Mad Dash to give players a virtual barn of their very own – and a host of livestock found within it.
Farm management is the name of the game here – as if you hadn’t guessed – and barn maintenance is at the fore of that. Creating the barn of your dreams is more on the cards with Farm Frenzy: Refreshed and when you take into account the main selling points of 3D graphics (!), changeable weather and seasons and the opportunity to create your very own products before trading them with city folk, and there should be a decent amount of content to enjoy.
Further more, pets are present too, and these are vital. You see, it’s the canine variety which will help ensure your livestock are kept safe from bears, with those of the feline persuasion will head on out to help gather up resources; stuff like eggs, cakes and more. There’s certainly a sense that Farm Frenzy is not attempting to replicate real world lives here – I mean, the only cats we know do nothing but laze around all day – but we guess that’s not the point with the franchise.
The key features include:
- Farm management — you own a great ranch, but it needs to be cleaned up. Set up a cozy barn for your animals, upgrade warehouses, and get daily bonuses.
- Available in 3D — advanced 3D graphics with dynamic changing of the time of day and lighting for a complete immersion in rural life.
- Changeable weather and seasons — forecasters report a sharp change in weather and even the season! On a sunny day, the grass on the level disappears much faster and needs to be watered all the time! And when it rains, the grass grows without water. In autumn, the wind carries away not only the leaves but also your harvest. Be sure to gather it immediately when ready! And in winter, animals need your care and warmth.
- Cats or dogs? — Both! Take your pets with you! Pets can help you drive away predators and collect food. Dogs will protect your animals from bears. And cats will help you gather resources – from eggs to cakes.
- Your own production — make various products, trade with the city, and achieve goals. Use the coins you earn to buy even more animals!
An £8.39 price tag is attached to farm Frenzy: Refreshed from the Xbox Store, and by paying up the cash and getting a download in, you’ll find the game playable on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
