The Rune Factory 5 PC release date has been revealed -- you'll be able to play this shiny new Farming RPG on Steam in a little less than a month.

Rune Factory 5 is the latest game in the long-running spinoff of the Harvest Moon franchise. It first made its debut on the Nintendo Switch as a Japanese exclusive a little over a year ago. Then, it finally made its way to North America and Europe back in March 2022. PC players in the West will soon be able to join in on the fun -- this farming RPG is making its way to Steam next month.

Players take on the role of the newest ranger for SEED, an organization of rangers that seeks to maintain the balance between humanity and nature. Unfortunately, the border town of Rigbarth has encountered some problems -- monsters are going wild and it's up to you to defeat them and capture them with your spell seal.

While Rune Factory has always had a stronger focus on combat compared to its Harvest Moon counterpart, there's still plenty of coziness to go around. Players will also be able to farm crops, make friends, marry someone, and start a family.
