More Beach Items, Pig Pen Coming Soon? – FarmVille Updates!

FarmVille, Social

Zynga has expanded the summer theme of items in FarmVille’s marketplace, and they’ve also released a new loading screen that gives us all something to think about, in terms of future happenings in the game. Let’s take a look at these updates.

New Summer Buildings and Decorations

For the next seven days, a new batch of summer themed items will be available in the FarmVille marketplace. The items are available on both the Buildings and Decorations tabs.

For the Buildings, you can now purchase a Beach Game Stand, like a midway game that you’d see on a boardwalk, for 24 Farm Cash, while a Lemonade Stand is available for 140,000 coins.

Meanwhile, there are five new decorations, three of which are premium items. The Beach Volleyball Court will set you back 30 Farm Cash, while the Surfer Gnome costs less, at 18 Farm Cash. The final premium item is actually an animal in the form of a Toucan, sitting on a branch, that is available to purchase for 16 Farm Cash. To be clear, this is a decorative animal only – it can’t be harvested from.

Finally, the two final Decorations are the Sandcastle, which costs 50,000 coins, and the Boardwalk, which costs just 20,000 coins. It should be noted that the Boardwalk is a fairly large item, and due to its design can’t really be lined up against another piece to extend its length. That is, this is more a solitary decorative item, rather than an item that would function as fencing would, allowing you to create a long stretch.

As we said above, these items will only be available in the store for the next seven days, so be sure to grab any that interest you while they are available.

New Loading Screen Hints at Future Update

Those who pay attention to FarmVille’s loading screens will have noticed an interesting new addition to the group of images that you may come across each time you load the game. This image is seen below, and shows a group of pigs next to what appears to be animal storage building.

Put the two thoughts together, and we can see that pig pens (the item’s exact name is still pending, due to the fact that this is, ultimately, speculation) are apparently coming to the game. With the recent release of the Party Pig, which resulted in many farmers having an over-abundance of pigs on their farms, it only makes sense that this would be the next animal in the game to receive a storage building.

We’ll be sure to bring you more news about this new feature when it officially launches in the game, but for now, head over to the game’s page to start shopping for the new summer items mentioned above.
