There's a new Haven and Hearth world starting on August 12th!
Is anyone else interested in playing some Haven and Hearth
in a couple weeks? It's like a free*
multiplayer version of Harvest Moon/Stardew Valley in one shared world, but with more focus on exploring and there's combat and stuff. You start with nothing, but you can build up a little village (with others) as you hunt animals and raise crops and stuff. It's really so much more fun when there's a bunch of people you know working towards goals and having fun building and decorating. Do note that there's PvP and people can freely attack you if they have the right unlocked perks
, though there's ways to hide in your town. Certain animals/monsters can also permanently (rarely) kill you
, although it only happened to me once when I was really new. There's some system to inherit a percentage of xp from your dead 'ancestor', but I never looked into it.
There's a pretty heavy emphasis on grinding to the extent that you'll always need new materials and food. However, stuff happens on real world timers, like it takes 20 hours to dry leather, or 3 days for crops to finish growing and other such things. It takes a similar time to recover from injuries and to 'study' things to get XP, so things can't progress TOO fast.
The current world should last for at least a few more days I think if you want to run around and get a handle of things, but there's no rush.https://www.havenandhearth.com
There's also a wiki for it, though the info isn't always accurate to the current version. https://ringofbrodgar.com/wiki/*
If you pay $15 you'll get an extra row of inventory space and 20% more XP. It's a fun game and I spent a lot of time in it so it was worth it to me.
