PlayStation Plus, much like Xbox Game Pass, is a wonderful place of discovery. It’s always welcomed news when a game you’ve been hoping to play joins the platform, but there’s a special kind of joy that comes from finding a new favourite you’d perhaps never considered or heard of.

Allow me to help you do just that. If you happen to be a fan of both the Final Fantasy franchise and Stardew Valley, you may want to check out Rune Factory 4 Special. You will need to be a subscriber of PlayStation Plus’ extra tier to join in the fun. Developed by Neverland, Rune Factory 4 Special is an RPG that allows you to embark on a magical fantasy farming adventure.

Speaking of Final Fantasy, take a look at our review of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth below.

“Welcome to Selphia, a region ruled by the Native Dragon Ventuswill … and you! After falling from the sky and landing on the back of a friendly dragon, the young hero or heroine is invited to live in the local castle and, as a newly designated ruler, begins their life anew while developing the town, exploring nearby dungeons, and cultivating the soil,” the synopsis teases. “Start an exciting new life and embark on a grand adventure in this beloved entry in the Rune Factory series.”

Over on Metacritic, the game has a very respectable score of 83. PlayStation Universe noted that it’s “a good entry point for newcomers to the genre”, while TheXboxHub added, “Xbox owners are in for a treat with Rune Factory 4 Special. A masterwork of an RPG, this is a game you can easily spend real-life days playing away. A perfect fit for fans of Rune Factory and Animal Crossing, as well as an exciting action JRPG for fans of old-school Zelda, there is something in this game for everyone.” Surely that’s piqued your interest.

The good news is that if you’re a PlayStation owner but you’re not subscribed to PS Plus’ extra tier, the game also happens to be on sale right now. You can grab Rune Factory 4 Special for just £7.49, but only until 28 February.
