Today Square Enix has announced an October 2016, North American release date for Dragon Quest Builders. This announcement was perfectly timed as today is the 30th anniversary of the Dragon Quest. In DQB, players will rebuild Alefgard, a vast realmed destroyed by the Dragonlord, using an assortment of unique tools and materials.
A long time ago, the realm of Alefgard was engulfed in an ongoing battle between the humans and the monsters. A celebrated hero stood up and confronted the Dragonlord, the wicked king of the monsters, to try to put an end to the conflict. Through his vile trickery, the Dragonlord deceived the hero into a false deal, and Alefgard was destroyed in the process. The few survivors were robbed of the power to build and scattered around the world to live out their lives in despair and apathy. The very idea of creativity and imagination became mere legend, and mankind was reduced to a meager existence, surviving only by scavenging what remained among the ruins for centuries to come.
Until one day, a new hero is awoken by the spirit of the land – one who will become the Legendary Builder, within whose fingertips dwells the long-lost power of creation. Rebuild the ruined realm in your own image and bring an end to the Dragonlord’s reign of evil once and for all.
Dragon Quest Builders will be available this October for Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, in the Playstation store and the Square Enix online store
