A Real FarmVille Freak Preview of Traveling to the FarmVille English Countryside
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit Zynga today, take a tour of the facilities, sit down with several high level employees (design and game production) all led by FarmVille Community Manager Grimwell. This is one of the many perks FarmVille Freak has because we have chosen to work with Zynga in our approved fan site partnership. The most exciting part about today is that I saw FarmVille English Countryside live!
Zynga employees said that they listened to their community and what they heard most was that farmers wanted a second farm, a fresh canvas, new challenges and new FarmVille experiences. While other ideas for other locations were rolled around, Zynga settled on the English Countryside. After seeing it today, FarmVille English Countryside seems like a natural step away or a vacation from our original farms. Zynga has carefully crafted a new kind of experience that taps into many game play aspects farmers know and love.
FarmVille English Countryside is very different from what I anticipated. What I am able to present to you today is a fresh look into the upcoming FarmVille English Countryside, with some inside scoop!
Traveling to the English Countryside
First let me be very clear, you will not need to add more neighbors, pay 47384738738 million coins or pay any Farm Cash $FV to explore new adventures in England. One day (release date is still unknown but coming sometime “soon”) Duke’s airship will crash onto your farm. Then, you will need to help him repair it, stock up some supplies and finally have a send off type party. This party will function very similarly to the New Years Ball. There will be several levels of guests and as soon as you have achieved the highest level, off to the English Countryside you will go!
When you are arrive in the FarmVille English Countryside you will meet several other characters. FarmVille English Countryside is story line or quest driven. Each character will present different scenarios and tasks for you to accomplish in which you will receive rewards.We have done a few quests in FarmVille for rewards, but rewards in FarmVille English Countryside seem very very worthwhile.
It’s important to know that participating in the story line is voluntary, it’s a choice that you make yourself. You do not have to take part or interact with the characters.
The quests will require no energy!
The FarmVille English Countryside is not energy driven at all like FrontierVille or Treasure Isle. It’s just good ol’ farming!
But more about that in my next post: Farming in the English Countryside! Check back soon for more posts about my adventure to Zynga! There is lots more info coming!
