If you’re a fan of family-friendly games, then today’s announcement that Harvest Moon Light of Hope has launched on PC should bring smiles. The game is launching first for PC for the first time in the series’ 20 year history. You can start playing on Steam today for $27.
PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch players need not despair. The game will be launching in 2018 for both consoles.
Players begin the game as they set out looking for a fresh start and new surroundings. During their voyage, their ship is hit by a monsoon and goes down. As they drift into a small harbor town, now in shambles from the storm, it will be up to the player to help rebuild the town and save the lighthouse…but it won’t be easy! Nevertheless, with some hard work growing crops, tending livestock, and gathering materials for repairs, players will be able to make new friends, start a family, revive the lighthouse, and save the town!
The game includes new features such as repairing, which enables the player to repair destroyed homes and unlock new shops, characters, farming tools, and farming land. The Farming Friend is another new addition, which helps players grow abundant crops. The game has a retro plus feel, with classic SNES-inspired graphics alongside some modern features in honor of the 20th anniversary. There will also be some familiar faces from previous Harvest Moon titles!
