Square Enix has detailed the content of their final free update for Dragon Quest Builders 2. And it is set to bring an epilogue to the story arc for those who’ve met the prerequisites. But, don’t worry, because it should take you a while to get to that point. So enjoy the journey, my builder buddy, and start building towards that finale.
The invitation for the epilogue arrives in the form of a letter, which will be delivered once you have:
- Unlocked a minimum of 45 builder recipes
- Been to a Buildertopia
- Undertaken all of Explorer’s Shores’ scavenger hunts
Only then will the story be complete. But that’s not all the update will add.
A wider selection of hairstyles will be available, which are inspired by the NPCs that inhabit the game; these will operate like accessories and therefore can’t be added to. Buildertopias will no longer be limited to a single save, opening up a whole new island of possibilities. And after you’ve unlocked every single builder recipe, you can manipulate the weather – though this still won’t be a dynamic and autonomous feature. Instead, it uses a series of cards to control the probability of precipitation.
All of this, and more, can be discovered in the official reveal livestream. The video for which you can find above. In the meantime, tell us how sturdy the foundations of Dragon Quest Builders 2 are. And watch out for the update on August 20th.
