APICO Will Finally Be Released On Xbox Consoles

Xbox owners who have an interest in beekeeping need not fret any longer, as APICO will be coming to the console this year.

Whitethorn Games and developers TNgineers confirmed this week that they will finally release APICO onto Xbox consoles later this year. The cozy beekeeping simulator has won over a ton of fans, as you'll work to cultivate hives and produce honey and wax, while also just chilling out in the wilderness. Now Xbox players will get their shot, and while a date hasn't been revealed, we do know that the game will be getting an update all-around when it does release so everyone has the same content. What's more, a portion of sales toward the game is helping to save the bees. We got more info and the trailer below.

"APICO combines resource gathering, biology, and minigames with ideas from both real-life and fantasy beekeeping and gardening, as it teaches players about the ins-and-outs of maintaining a healthy hive and the importance of our irreplaceable pollinating pals. The islands of APICO were once abuzz with different species of bees, and it's up to players to rediscover lost species, cross-breed new ones, and repopulate each unique bee-ome. Progressing further into the game may also uncover some forgotten secrets."
