LONDON, United Kingdom – Dec. 7, 2021.
Marvelous Europe are today very happy and excited to announce that the RPG action, farming, and life simulation game “Rune Factory 4 Special ” is now available for PC (via Steam), PS5/PS4 (via PSN), and Xbox Series X/S/Xbox One (via the Microsoft Store).
Rune Factory 4 Special brings RPG action, farming, and life simulation together in a single package, allowing players to create a fulfilling routine for themselves in the town of Selphia.
Playing as the appointed prince or princess of the town, Earthmates can forge their own destiny, whether that means a quiet life working the fields, building close relationships with the townsfolk, or delving into dungeons with the wide array of weapons and magical powers at their command. As Earthmates deepen their relationship with the residents of Selphia, they can even get married to one of the 12 eligible candidates.
In addition to the base game, the title also includes the ‘Another Episode’ DLC, which adds a series of illustrated storybook-style episodes narrated by the game’s 12 marriage candidates and Selphia’s lovable guardian dragon Ventuswill.
About Rune Factory 4 Special
Rune Factory 4 Special opens with a young man or woman falling from an airship and landing in the town of Selphia. Appointed the local regent by mistake, the hero is charged with protecting the town and bettering the lives of its people.
As the newly-appointed prince or princess, royal duties are fulfilled by issuing orders to help the town prosper, or by taking a more relaxed approach to governance by raising crops and helping townsfolk. Should some dungeon adventuring be on the day’s itinerary, a vast array of weapons along with magic can be crafted or bought for battle against dangerous foes—companions or friendly monsters can also join to aid the player during their travels. And, of course, there’s a huge cast of lovable townsfolk, including 12 potential suitors to woo and marry.
This updated version of the original Nintendo 3DS title released in 2013 comes with extra content such as ‘Newlywed Mode,’ self-contained adventures that unlock after marrying one of the game’s eligible candidates, and a “Hell” difficulty level for players seeking a true challenge. Rune Factory 4 Special is also available on the Nintendo Switch™ system.
Developed by Marvelous Inc. and published by Marvelous Europe, Rune Factory 4 Special launched on Dec. 7 for the PS4™ system (playable on PS5™), Xbox One (playable on Xbox Series X|S), and globally on Windows PC via Steam and Microsoft Store.
The title is available digitally on the new platforms for £24.99/€29.99 with a 10% discount and the ‘Another Episode’ DLC included for free. This game has been rated PEGI 12, USK 6 and PG in Australia and New Zealand.
