While this week’s installment of the official FarmVille podcast may have been a short one, it wasn’t lacking in the world of “coming soon” announcements. First, FarmVille community manager Lexilicious has reassured users that the next features associated with Pigpens, those being Slop and Truffle Hunting, will be added to the game in the coming weeks.
Next, Lexi made a special note concerning FarmVille on the iPhone, announcing a contest called the “Where do you mobile farm photo contest.” This contest will be open to players until August 31, and all you have to do is take a picture of yourself playing FarmVille on your iPhone and submit it for a chance to win 500 Farm Cash. For more information about the contest, or to enter, head over to the FarmVille mobile forums.
In terms of coming soon announcements, the first is that our Nursery Barns will soon be expandable. There was no concrete date announced for when this feature would launch – all we know is that we’ll be able to expand our Nursery Barns to hold more animals “in the coming weeks.”
Next, a new Wild West themed Mystery Game, along with new Wild West themed decorations and items will be released in the store soon.
Finally, the way we visit neighbors in the game is going to change. Similar to the way neighbor visits function in FrontierVille, we’ll soon be able to do more on our friends’ farms, besides just fertilizing land or feeding chickens. This includes plowing a neighbors’ fallow land, collecting from their animals, and harvest from their trees. When you do these actions, you’ll earn coins and experience coins for helping, and when your neighbors return to their farms, they’ll earn the corresponding amount of experience points and coins, as if they had performed the action themselves.
We’ll be sure to bring you more information about this new feature (one that could turn out to be pretty profitable for users with lots of neighbors), as soon as it becomes available. For now, if you missed out on listening to the full podcast, here it is below in its entirety for your listening pleasure.
