An industrious new update to the bee-loved beekeeping sim APICO is now available for free to budding beekers! Update 4.0: A Hive of Industry, the final update, available now on Switch, introduces a new automation system, new seasonal events, new craftable materials, and, best of all, pets! At the same time, Update 3.0: What Lies Beeneath is also available to play on Switch. Dive deep into the oceans of the APICO archipelago to discover new underwater bees, or return to the surface to check out new craftable items, a new fishing mini-game, and much more!

Some of the new features available in APICO in Update 4.0: A Hive of Industry include:

Automation Machines: Craft the Auto-sawmill, Auto-centrifuge, and Auto-squeezer, along with eight new automation machines — Hoppers, Shredders, Loggers, Pickers, Sprinklers, Condensers, Ploppers, and Shippers — on your new Crystal Workbench, which can be purchased from Bobbee, to bring your thriving industry to new heights.

New Resource — Honeycore Crystals: Use the newly-added resonance meter and engage in its new mini-game to seek out different sounds throughout the various environments that will help you locate six different types of crystals. Melt them down in the forge and craft new crystal items, including Crystal chests, the Crystal axe, hammer, shovel, and more.

Pets: Choose from 16 different adorable little companions to accompany you on your expeditions, including your very own tiny dinosaur!

New Seasonal Events: Celebrate Hivemas, active during the month of December, and Hallowbeen, active during the month of October, in the world of APICO with the NPCs! Each event brings new decor, new paints, and secret easter egg items for you to enjoy. There’s no need to bee patient waiting for each event, as you’ll be able to toggle each event in the settings menu!

…and so much more: TNgineers have added ten new quests, new decor, paints, new environmental events, and of course, new bees and pollinators! There’s also a new 100% completion surprise that the most dedicated beekeepers can uncover through the Hive Mother’s door.
