In DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS 2, players take on the role of a young apprentice builder who finds themselves washed up on the Isle of Awakening alongside Malroth, a mysterious youth suffering from amnesia.

As a follow-up to the acclaimed 2016 game DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS, the sequel introduces online multiplayer for the first time, allowing up to four friends to play together and create something truly magnificent. DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS 2 also features a plethora of upgrades, including the ability to construct bigger structures, travel by soaring, swimming and dashing, farming crops, first person mode and much more, making for an experience that is bigger, better and buildier than ever before.

About DRAGON QUEST BUILDERS 2

After washing up on the shores of the deserted Isle of Awakening, you encounter the spirited Malroth, a mysterious youth with no memory of his past. With the help of your fearless new friend, you embark on a grand adventure to gather the skills required to become a full-fledged builder, but the road you build is paved with peril. Only you can defeat the Children of Hargon, uncover the secrets of Malroth’s past, and unravel the riddles of this mysterious land.
