Developer The Molasses Flood (The Flame In The Flood) has announced that action village building game Drake Hollow is coming to Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam on July 17th. And the best bit? It's also going to be available with Xbox Game Pass on day one.

Drake Hollow centres around the idea of building and defending villages of vegetable-like creatures (called Drakes) from "deadly feral beasts" in the world of The Hollow. The game adopts a cartoonish art style, and will feature both single-player and online co-op support for up to four players.

If you want to give Drake Hollow a try, you can register for the private Xbox One beta right now! Simply sign up for the mailing list at the game's official website, and you'll reportedly receive a code (these are going out daily).

Explore a blighted world with your friends. Gather supplies, battle savage creatures, and build villages to protect the local innocent vegetable folks known as Drakes.
