Square Enix has confirmed that the final piece of free content for Dragon Quest Builders 2 will bring an epilogue, new hairdos, and weather changes to the game when it releases on 20th August, 2019.
The new features – which also include the opportunity to save up to three Buildertopias, too – were revealed by way of a livestream by Square Enix Japan (thanks, Polygon and Gematsu via GamesRadar+). In order to play the epilogue, players will have to have completed all of the scavenger hunts on Explorer’s Shores, have visited at least one Buildertopia, and also have unlocked 45 builder recipes. Once you’ve completed all of the prerequisites, a special letter will arrive, unlocking the epilogue.
While the game won’t feature anything quite as fancy as dynamic or organic weather changes, once you’ve unlocked all the builder recipes and talked to the glowing Hammerhood after receiving the Builder’s Eye, you’ll be able to create up to five weather cards at a Magic Workstation. The options available include Clear Card, Cloudy Card, Rain Card, Snow Card, and Storm Card.
