PC players have another reason to be happy as Rune Factory 5 is now available. It was released worldwide in March this year but only on Nintendo Switch. The PC version offers visual updates, new customization options, and dual-audio support for both English and Japanese voice tracks.

Rune Factory 5 is a farming and life sim RPG that delivers a full 3D adventure where players take on the role of a ranger who had recently become a member of the peacekeeping organization known as SEED. As a member of SEED, the job is to protect the town against monsters. They also get to explore dungeons and solve the mystery threatening Rigbarth.

It’s not all fighting since in between the adventures and when not on a mission, players can stay in the town to grow crops, build friendships, and even join in local festivals. There are also new features for veterans of the franchise, like link attacks, co-op cooking, and same-sex marriage.

Rune Factory 5 is available through Steam, with the Standard Edition priced at $59.99 and the Digital Deluxe Edition available at $69.99. The Digital Deluxe Edition comes with 13 exclusive outfits inspired by the marriage candidates of Rune Factory 4. By the way, both editions are currently being offered at a 10% discount until July 20. Players can also get their hands on additional DLC content with prices ranging from $1.99 to $4.99.

For those who have the Rune Factory 4 Special on Steam, Doug and Margaret will take up residence in the Blue Moon Inn at Rigbarth; each one will offer their own requests on the task board. Completing requests reward players with the outfits for Lest and Frey of Rune Factory 4.

While Doug and Margaret are fully integrated into Rune Factory 5, both are not eligible for marriage. However, they’ll be somewhere in the town and can join the players as part of the party.
