FarmVille Scotland Decorations: Scottish Barn, Piper Gnome, Bluebell Woods & More
Rounding out our correct predictions, tonight's FarmVille update brought with it the expected set of Scotland-themed decorations and buildings. Specifically, there are two new buildings to purchase along with four new decorations, all in a brand new Scotland theme. It's unknown right now whether or not the Scotland theme will expand beyond this initial release, so pay special attention to these first items in case they happen to be the final items as well.
The two new buildings are the Scottish Barn and the Crofting Cottage. The Scottish Barn is the premium item in the pair, costing 25 Farm Cash. While that might be a high number, it's not uncommon to see buildings cost 35 or more Farm Cash, so this is actually quite a "discount" at the end of the day. If that number still isn't low enough for you, you can purchase the Crofting Cottage instead, for 300,000 coins. As both items are rather expensive, you'll receive ample experience points for purchasing them - 2500 for the Scottish Barn and 3000 for the Crofting Cottage.
As for the decorative items, we have four to choose from, two of which are premium. The premium items are the Scottish Lochs (think Loch Ness Monster) at 20 Farm Cash, and the Piper Gnome, which costs 15 Farm Cash. For Gnome collectors, this is one of the cutest I've ever seen released in the game, as he comes complete with the bagpipes musical instrument, along with an appropriately themed outfit (just don't ask him what he's wearing underneath!).
Rounding out the theme are the Bluebell Woods and Scottish Flag, two coin items that are actually quite affordable, all things considered (which means we'll likely see much more expensive items released in the future, to make up the difference). The Bluebell Woods costs 80,000 coins, while the Scottish Flag is only 20,000. I feel it worth mentioning that other flags in the game cost 16 Farm Cash, so if you have any interest in this Scottish version whatsoever, know that you really are getting a great bargain.
We don't know if there will be other Scotland items released in the FarmVille market in the future, but it's unlike Zynga to only release a single set of items in a theme (unless it's for a short holiday). We'll make sure to keep an eye on things, and will let you know if more items are added. In the meantime, these first items will only be available for two weeks, so keep that in mind when planning your in-game shopping budget. You won't want to miss out on these new themed items, would you?
What do you think of tonight's release overall? Do you like the Scotland themed items, or would you prefer items be based off of another European country? Let us know in the comments.
