Today, Square Enix announced that after seven years, Dragon Quest Builders For some reason, it’s coming to PC in early February.

It was released in 2016, Dragon Quest BuildersIt is an open world survival game that combines… Maine Craft’blocks with Dragon Adventuretraditions. It’s an exhilarating game that lets you build rules as you play through pre-written stories and quests. It launched on PS3 and PS4 in 2016. DQB came to Converts In 2018 and later it was released on phones as well. But the popular survival RPG was never released on PC. However, that is about to change next month.

Seemingly out of nowhere, on January 29, Square Enix announced That original Dragon Quest Builders It will be released on PC on February 13th. More than a decade later, Square Enix seems to have remembered that people might want to play this game on their PCs.

What’s very strange about this is that the second part of the game, Dragon Quest Builders 2launched on consoles and PC in the United States in 2019. Square Enix is ​​even selling a bundle on Steam which brings both games into one package. Although I’m happy to see a game previously embattled on consoles getting an official PC port – allowing fans to more easily preserve it for years to come – I’m still confused as to why now.

I also have to wonder: Will Xbox gamers be able to access Dragon Quest Builders Later this year too? DQB2 It arrived on Xbox in 2021, a few years after it was released on PS4 and PC. But the first game never shipped on Xbox. I’m not sure how many people in 2024 will have a good time playing it DQB on Xbox, but at this point, with this random PC port coming soon, who knows? Maybe Square Enix will surprise Xbox gamers with their very late DQB port as well. Strange things happened.
