SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Zynga Inc. (Nasdaq: ZNGA), a global leader in interactive entertainment, announced the worldwide launch of FarmVille 3, the exciting new edition of its iconic FarmVille franchise. The agriculture-simulation social game is now officially available to download on iOS and Android devices worldwide, as well as on the Mac M1.
Twelve years – and over 700 million downloads – after the original FarmVille was introduced to the world in 2009, FarmVille 3 is bringing to life a new beautifully crafted world filled with a rich cast of fully animated characters and interactive animals.
Returning to the franchise is the beloved guide Marie, who will welcome back the FarmVille community and greet new players as they build their homesteads and complete challenges. She will be joined by a fresh cast of farmhands with diverse backgrounds and skills who will assist players with new elements in the game, including new customizable farms and animal husbandry.
As players escape into this new world, they can adopt, nurture and raise baby animals from more than 150 breeds – and be rewarded with farm goods, like wool and butter, for their parenting efforts.
“FarmVille 3 immerses players in a visually stunning new FarmVille experience infused with the sense of adventure, social connection and farming spirit that hundreds of millions of fans have come to love,” said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing at Zynga. “We warmly invite a new generation of players to meet the delightful new FarmVille characters and lovable animals who thrive in a gorgeous countryside filled with heart and humor.”
