Playfish has added yet another new animal to their farming simulation game Country Story. This time, the animal comes in the form of a baby elephant, which serves more purpose than simply being adorable (which it is regardless).
The Baby Elephant will actually water your crops for you, after you feed it 3 bananas per day to keep it happy. Surprisingly, the Baby Elephant doesn’t cost Playfish Cash, and furthermore, doesn’t even have that high of a coin price tag, setting you back just 15,000 coins. Where things become expensive is in purchasing the bananas to feed your elephant.
Under the Animal Food section of the marketplace, you’ll find that there are three options available for purchasing bananas. You can purchase a bundle of three for 1 Playfish Cash, a bundle of 21 (good for 7 days use) for 5 Playfish Cash, or a bundle of 60 bananas, which will last you 20 days, for 10 Playfish Cash.
As added incentive to purchase an elephant, you’re given your first three bananas for free just for logging into the game, and you can also take advantage of the new free gifts option that allows you to send your friends bananas, and for them to return the favor by sending the same.
After you’ve purchased your elephant, and fed it its three daily bananas, you’ll find that it automatically waters every crop you have planted, without you doing any work. This isn’t limited to a single watering, as any subsequent crops you plant will also automatically be watered, saving you tons of time.
