This franchise has a niche player base, but according to Square Enix, Dragon Quest Builders 2, launched back in 2019, sold more than 1 million units. This PC version of the game will add an undo button, mouse control, and many other features. The Terra Incognito DLC will include many new pieces of content that add lots of sets and things for you. Dragon Quest Builders is set in the world of Alefgard. The main difference with other Dragon Quest games is that you are a builder, not a hero.


In many new areas, you will have to rebuild ruins from scratch again to bring Alefgard to its former glory. The campaign of Dragon Quest Builders is made to last a good amount of time, with different main quests to discover this enormous world. There is also a sandbox mode that lets you enjoy all the crafting capabilities without any quests bothering you and make whatever you want.
