FarmVille 5/17 official podcast: New mystery eggs, Co-Op missions and useful pet tricks

This week's FarmVille podcast has arrived, with discussion of hay bales, new Co-Op mission and -- the main reason we tune in -- a look at features that will be coming soon.

Since there haven't been many major league holidays lately, the new releases in FarmVille have been a little on the spare side, Based on this week's podcast, it seems like that won't change this week (Of course, you'll have to decide for yourself by listening to the podcast and checking out our cheat sheet below). Maybe the folks behind the scenes are hard at work on something big, like the Farmer's Market, the 7-Eleven promotion slated to start June 1 or the rumored Tree Mastery.

Recent Releases:

More Southwestern limited edition items:

- Adobe Mansion
- Cowboy Gnome
- Apaloosa horse

Questions of the Week:

Will there be any new Co-Ops in the future?
FarmVille team is planning on adding more Co-Op missions in the future. No exact yet, but they're in the plans for the "coming weeks."

What happened to the podcast's Tip of the Week?
Replaced with user-submitted questions, and was cut to keep the podcast at a "reasonable length." If you want it back, leave a note.

How long does it take to implement a new feature in FarmVille?
Depends on the feature. Market items go through creative director -- can take anywhere from days to weeks. More complicated features take longer. "Simply brainstorming and getting ideas is a process within itself."
