Tonight's FarmVille update saw the Valentine's Day theme being released in full force in the store, with not only a new building to purchase, but also quite a few new decorative items, most of which we'd given you a sneak preview of over the past week or so.
The new building is the Valentine House [pictured above], which can be purchased for 20 Farm Cash. As a limited edition building, it will be available to purchase for the next 13 days from the store. You'll receive 2,000 experience points as a bonus for purchasing it, and since this is the season of love, feel free to purchase and send one of these items to a loved-one in the game as a gift.
The rest of these items (save for one) have something in common - that being an overwhelming use of the color pink. If you're a girly girl, or a man that can take a bit of "lovey-dovey" emotion in your life, make sure to meet us behind the break for a complete look at the other newly available decorative Valentine's Day items.
As for the game's new decorative items, there are five to choose from. Four of these items are re-releases from last year, so unfortunately, if you stocked up on items last February like many veteran players, you may not find much to purchase this time around.
Either way, these items are still just as cute as ever, and come in the form of a Cupid Gnome, Love Arch, Rose Bush, and Swan Fountain. The Cupid Gnome and Swan Fountain are premium items, costing 18 and 20 Farm Cash, respectively. Meanwhile, the Love Arch costs 22,000 coins, and the Rose Bush costs 1,200 coins.
As it compares to last year, the Rose Bush actually decreased in price from last year, going from 1,500 coins to its current price of 1,200, while the Love Arch increased in price from last year's price of 2,200 coins. Another decrease is found in the Swan Fountain, which cost 24 Farm Cash last year. While 4 Farm Cash might not seem like a big change, with the current rate of exchange between real world currency and Farm Cash, that's actually a savings of over a dollar, so it's nothing to scoff at.
As for the completely new item, it comes in the form of the Heart Fence, which is available to purchase piece by piece for 10,000 coins each. You'll gain 100 experience points for each piece of the fence you purchase, and you can sell them for 500 coins each at the end of the season if you don't have a place to store them.
All of these items, whether new or old, will be available in the game's store for the next 13 days. Do the math on this, and these items will expire before Valentine's Day proper even arrives next month, so we will no doubt be seeing more Valentine's Day items released in the game in the future. We'll be sure to let you know what those items are when they are released.
How many of these items did you already own from last year? Did you sell items off and are now thankful that you have a second chance at them? Share your stories with us in the comments!
