The release of the latest expansion in FrontierVille – Gold Rush or the Prospect Falls expansion as it is now known has been detailed by Zynga just now, telling us about the great features we’re going to see in the expansion. But if you are a FrontierVille Info reader, you already know about some of them in our previous guide to FrontierVille’s Gold Rush.
However, these are now official confirmations and it’s always good to see them.
Probably the most important thing about the Prospect Falls is that we will get a brand new town/homestead. Similar to the recent Ghost Town and Holiday Hollow, Prospect Falls will challenge us to build it up as we see fit. So we’ll be building here new houses, harvest crops, grow animals – everything we do on our homestead, but with brand new items.
According to Zynga, the launch of Prospect Falls will be soon followed by the release of new missions, a land expansion (and I am sure there will be more) and even a mysterious building (for now) that makes the connection between our homestead and the Gold Rush area.
There will be a lot of new things we’ll get in FrontierVille with the launch of expansion and we’ll have to get used to them. Until we have more details and guides, here they are:
- Gold Nuggets – The main currency in Prospect Falls
- Grub – A resource for feeding animals
- Redwood Logs – A resource used in building and crafting materials
- Determination – Your basic source of energy
- Population – As your Boom Town grows in Population, the town can support more animals and put down more crops
Zynga explains how this all works: “Well, it’s a circular relationship. At the base of it is your currency, Gold Nuggets. You can get them by collecting from Mines, Sluices and Rocker Boxes that dot the area (they may need to be constructed first, using Redwood Logs, parts from your neighbors, or crafted items). You can also get them from breaking down rocks, finishing quests, and whacking some Outlaws. Oh, and by the way, you can use Sherriff Mae once a day to instantly clobber a Outlaw. Pretty useful!”
You’ll purchase all the bases of the buildings using Gold Nuggets (which are obviously the “regular coins” over on the homestead). The nice change here is that Grub is required to feed animals (the larger the animal, the more grub it needs), while Grub is obtained from harvesting crops. Extremely exciting and gives more sense to harvesting.
But it’s all connected to population: the higher the population of Prospect Falls, the more stuff you are allowed to have. Therefore, one of your goals will be that of increasing your population too! And finally, population (which seems to work a bit like levels) will be how you will compare with your neighbors. Extremely interesting!
Add to that the introduction of a ton of new animals, building and decorations, new collections and even SUPER COLLECTIONS! Therefore, if there’s one place where you want to be in the near future, that’s Prospect Falls. And I must admit that I am extremely excited with the launch of this Gold Rush in FrontierVille!
The only problem is that Zynga still didn’t say when exactly they will release Prospect Falls. But I have a feeling that it’s really close. And I am really glad with these new details because they finally made me regain trust in FrontierVille – everything sounds absolutely impressive.
