Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp Update Aims to Fix One of the Game's Major Problems

Written by on | OpenCritic

A new update has released for Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and it fixes one of the biggest problems plaguing players.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp's latest update fixes the Gulliver's Ship feature. It started off as a place where players could recycle extra furniture in exchange for rewards. It transformed, however, forcing players to use rare materials for items that were not wanted, which upset the game's community. The new update now makes it so you can send off anything, such as extra furnishings and craft materials, for good rewards, such as Fortune Cookies, the game's loot boxes.

All players were also given a free month of the game's new $2.99 subscription, entitled the Happy Helper plan. This plan allows players to choose a villager to be a campsite helper. While gamers are away, the helper will collect items and complete tasks for them, effectively playing the game while they are not. The plan also comes with 60 Leaf Tickets, the game's premium currency, every month that gamers are subscribed to the plan.

Pocket Camp also has a second subscription service available, the Cookie and Depot plan. The plan costs $7.99 a month, and allows players to choose from 5 Fortune Cookies every month, which usually cost 50 Leaf Tickets on their own. Fortune Cookies that are no longer available can also be picked. Duplicates are possible, and drop rates for rare items are low. The plan also grants more space to hold items.

To celebrate the holiday season, players can now pick out Flurry's Powdered Cookie at the Fortune Cookie Shop, which grants special holiday items, such as an illuminated candle-path and Angelic Robes. Players can decorate their camp to go along with the holidays, adding snow and other winter decorations. This content will be free to all players, and will last until February 24th, 2020. You can check out the trailer for the powdered cookie below.
