FarmVille English Countryside Q&A!

You may remember that FarmVille Freak did a post earlier about the FarmVille English Countryside Q&A that was opened on the FarmVille Discussion Boards.

FarmVille Comminuty Manager Stumpgrinder had told us to ask any and all questions we have about the new upcoming feature, and they would pick a few essential questions and answer them for us!

Seems as though our wait is over! Earlier this afternoon, Lexilicious posted an announcement on the Forums:

Hey Farmers!

We know you have been eagerly awaiting more information about the upcoming English Countryside release and the wait is finally over!

We asked the community to submit their questions about the English Countryside and the designers behind this release have answered some of the best.

We will be periodically updating this Q&A with more information as we get a little closer to the release of FarmVille English Countryside, so stay tuned!

FarmVille English Countryside Q&A

Several farmers swamped the discussion board hoping that their question would be answered, so be sure to check the FarmVille Forums to see if yours was!

Here is the top question that several farmers asked, and was picked to be answered:

Will our neighbors be able to visit our English Countryside farms? Will they be able to “help” on my farm?

All your neighbors will be able to visit you in the English Countryside to see your new English Farm, and we think you’ll be eager to show it off. They will also be able to help you by fertilizing your English crops, tending your chicken coop full of English chickens, and so on.

We’ve tried hard to make farming in England feel new and exciting, while preserving the gameplay our players love, and making it super-easy to get started and build your farm up right away. We hope it will seem fresh and fun, but also familiar and comfortable.

Many similar questions that might prove to you as essential information have also been answered!

Are you excited about the newest FarmVille English Countryside feature?

Why do we need so many boards, bricks, and nails? I’m running out of room in my gift box.

You’ll need boards, bricks, and nails to build things in the English Countryside, just as you do at home, but if you’re running out of room in your gift box you probably have enough!

Will there be new crops/animals/decorations that are only available on the English farm?

Lots! Almost everything on your new English farm will be something you’ve never seen before. Your second farm in the English Countryside will offer the chance to grow new crops like English Peas, King Edward Potatoes, Blue Bells, English Roses, and many others.

Will it be linear and task driven (aka quests), or will it retain a lot of the free-form creativity that is found in FarmVille?

The English Countryside will offer the chance to participate in a storyline with the characters who live around your English Farm. You don’t have to participate in the story in order to work on, decorate, and expand your second farm.

Sheep breeding questions… Will the resulting lambs be able to grow up? If so, will they all be ewes or will some become rams?

You’ll be able to breed your own Rams and Ewes to create unique lambs with characteristics from both parents. You get to name each baby Lamb and have the choice to keep it or let a friend adopt it to raise on their own farm. When the lamb grows up, you can breed it as well, to create family trees and new combinations. Every baby lamb has a chance to be a Ram or a Ewe.

Will we have to purchase the English Countryside with Farm Cash or add new neighbors if we want to play?

No! You won’t have to add new neighbors in order to travel to the English Countryside. Everything you need to do can be accomplished with your existing friends and neighbors. It won’t cost you Farm Cash, either.

We want all of our players to try farming in the English Countryside, so we’re making it as easy and fun as possible to get there. The deed to your second farm might literally fall out of the sky and land on your farm!

Will this be energy-based like FrontierVille? Or will it be the same as FarmVille?

You won’t need energy or anything like it. We’re committed to keeping FarmVille’s gameplay just as our players have always enjoyed it. We want to add more ways to play and more things to do, without taking away anything you like about the game now. Farmers are some of the hardest-working people around, so they should never run short of energy!

Remember Farmers, if you are looking for the latest news and information about FarmVille English Countryside, make sure to “like” the Official Fan Page! For every million ‘Likes’ we get we’re adding another grand prize trip to England to our upcoming sweepstakes.

Happy Farming!

  1. Hi there,

    I’m playing farmville and really loved it, untill I noticed that my crops on my home farm didn’t grow while I was at the English country side. That really sucks… I hope this changes really fast!

  2. Why is one farm paused while working on the other one???
    This is the major problem that i DO NOT like!
    It makes me not want to play the English Countryside!!!
    Please fix it, So i can enjoy both farms at the same time!

  3. will we be having 2 farms at the same time ?
    and will the england farm will become as our only farm ?

  4. OK. so i have a ram on my normal farm, but i want to move it to my english farm. is this possible, and how do i do it? would really appreciate answer :P

  5. Before I got my English farm I bought a English stone bridge and placed it on my regular farm. After I got my English farm I couldn’t go and place it on my English farm where I wanted it to be. I had no warning that I wouldn’t be able to move it to my English farm unless I kept it in my gift box at the time. It took me some time to save the 250.00 and now in trying to get to the 250.00 with only one day left I’m really upset that I wasn’t told. Wish there was something you could do.

    Sincerely,

    Tammy
