Dragon Quest Builders 2 comes to Game Pass on May 4th

2019 construction RPG Dragon Quest Builders 2 comes to Game Pass this May. Originally launched for Switch and PS4, the spin-off to the incredibly long-running Dragon Quest series has been listed on Microsoft's store as coming to game pass in an unannounced addition to May's line-up.

Builders 2 takes Dragon Quest's typical fantasy setting and Akira Toriyama character designs and transplants them into a block building construction game, foregoing the classic series' turn-based combat for real-time RPG action in an expansive open world. Just because the game features block-based construction doesn't mean it's a plotless sandbox though. Dragon Quest Builders 2 boasts a lengthy story campaign and multiplayer modes to play with friends.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 was critically well-received on launch and it's great to see Microsoft giving even more people access to the game through its Game Pass program.
