Dragon Quest Builders 2 is officially headed to Xbox for the first time and will be available on console, PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming on May 4. The Dragon Quest spin-off sequel from publisher Square Enix originally launched in December 2019 for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, arriving on PC a few months later.
Microsoft confirmed the news after store pages for the game began appearing online and leaking the existence of the game. If you’re not currently a member of Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you’ll be able to purchase Dragon Quest Builders 2 for $50.
In our Dragon Quest Builders 2 review, critic Heidi Kemps praised the game for building on the strong foundation that its predecessor had established.
“Dragon Quest Builders 2 is a great game, combining exploration, sandbox-building, questing, and town-management into a delightful package that will gladly suck up your time and put a big smile on your face,” Kemps said. “It’s the sort of game that you’ll intend to play for a little while, only to find that hours have flown by once you manage to actually put it down.”
