Ooblets comes to early access in just a few weeks

By Heidi Nicholas,
Ooblets is an adorable mashup of farming, town life and creature collecting, and it now has an early access release date. It'll be available in just a few weeks time on July 15th on Xbox One and the Epic Games Store.

Early Access release date

Ooblets was first announced three years ago, so it's a big deal for GlumberLand to now be able to announce its release date. According to the game's site, Ooblets lets you experience town life and farming, "grow pals on your farm", and "have those pals do dance battles." Your character's clothes, hairstyle and house will be customisable and the land of Oob itself will have a "variety of locations... all with their own biomes, plants, characters, and unique ooblets."

The devs say the early access Ooblets "is in a very playable state, but there are going to be a bunch of bugs and unfinished parts." They add that "Depending on how you play, we’d estimate that there’s about 6-40 hours of gameplay right now", since the game has "an overarching story that plays out through some of your quests that won’t be fully completed until we reach our 1.0 release." Ooblets comes to early access for Xbox One and the Epic Games Store on July 15th.

I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
