Original story (Fri 18th Dec, 2020): PID Publishing and ustwo games have announced that the recently released PC exploration game Alba: A Wildlife Adventure is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in Spring of 2021.
Alba: A Wildlife Adventure casts you in a role of Alba, "a young girl visiting her grandparents on the island for a peaceful summer exploring and searching for local wildlife with her best friend Ines. However, when Alba finds out about plans to build a garish hotel on the site of the island’s nature reserve, she sets out to stop it!"
In conjunction with the game's release, ustwo games is planting one tree for each copy sold or downloaded, with the goal of planting one million trees. This will extend to the Xbox version next year, and 200,000 trees are already set to be planted following the game's successful release on PC and Apple Arcade earlier this month.
Here's what the official press release has to say about the game:
"Alba: A Wildlife Adventure is a gorgeous, sun-soaked exploration game about the environment, community and how small actions can make a big difference, from the multi-award winning studio behind Monument Valley and Assemble With Care.
Players can explore the idyllic island from its sun-soaked coast to its castle ruins, with everywhere else between. Whether it’s photographing animals, people and places, finding rare wildlife, locating lost pets, inspiring volunteers or repairing broken bird boxes, Alba is never short on ways to help out."
