What is APICO?

As mentioned earlier, APICO mixes different gameplay aspects, such as gathering resources and biology to help develop and maintain hives as a beekeeper. The game tasks players with repopulating the APICO islands with bees after the species disappeared.

Players utilize the skills they develop throughout the game in order to rediscover lost bees, cross-breed new species, and save the bee population along the way.

Here is what players can experience with APICO:

  • Fun with friends: The entire game is playable with friends in online co-op. Even on different consoles with full crossplay.
  • Large bee roster: There are over 30 species of bee to discover in-game through cross-breeding.
  • Biomes: There are different biomes to venture into each with its own unique bee species.
  • Secrets: The APICO islands hold many different easter eggs and secrets for players to uncover.
  • Update 2.0: A brand-new update that gives players access to new NPCs, butterfly species, flowers, and much more.
