FarmVille Sneak Peek: Turtle Racing coming soon [UPDATE]


UPDATE: So, it looks like Zynga has jumped the gun and actually released these animals this evening! How convenient! Each turtle can be purchased from the store for 14 Farm Cash, while the actual racing feature is (as of this writing) still unreleased.

Well, this is different. It looks like a whole system of turtles and turtle racing will be coming to FarmVille sometime in the future. Via the folks at FVNation, we can see that there will be at least six different colors of turtles: Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, Orange and Purple. Through a still-unknown process, it looks like we'll be able to race these turtles, as there's a whole flash movie detailing the ending of a Turtle Race that's also available to view below.

With features such as these, where there's so much left up in the air, all we can do is speculate. Will this be a social feature, allowing us to gather five friends and race our own specific color of turtle against one another? Will this see the many characters in the English Countryside being our opponents instead? Will there be prizes other than the trophy seen in the movie? I don't know about you, farmers, but I'm incredibly excited to see what all of this develops into. You can be sure we'll let you know when and if these cute little turtles officially make an appearance on farms everywhere, so keep checking back.
