XSEED Games announced that Rune Factory 5 will be coming to PC via Steam on July 13. When it does, it will feature graphical improvements and various customization options unique to the PC platform.

Rune Factory 5 is apparently a farming/life sim RPG delivered in full 3D. Players will tackle dungeons, battle dangerous foes, and "unravel a mystery threatening their adopted home of Rigbarth." When you aren't trying to save the world, you will be busy growing crops, checking out local festivals, and building friendships with the townspeople.

Rune Factory 5 will be offered at a 15% pre-purchase discount off its standard price of $59.99 (USD). This will then go to a 10% discount during its launch week starting July 13th. A Digital Deluxe Edition adds 13 exclusive outfits "inspired by the marriage candidates of Rune Factory 4" and will be available for pre-purchase for $69.99 with the same discounts as the standard edition.

The game will feature options for either English or Japanese voice tracks. There are also features new to the series such as link attacks, co-op cooking, and same-sex marriage. Those who own Rune Factor 4 Special on Steam will also get a special bonus in Rune Factory 5 as well as outfits inspired by past protagonists Lest and Frey. Doug and Margaret, apparently these two are "fan-favorites," will be in Rune Factory 5 as guest NPCs.
