For a couple of days now, we've known that a fairytale themed set of items would be launching in FarmVille, we just didn't know exactly when that update would hit. Turns out, tonight's FarmVille update brought with it this entirely new limited edition item theme, which contains (thus far) two new animals: the Knight Steed and the Fairy Pig.
If you like a bit of whimsy with your farm animals, these are definitely two to look into. The Knight Steed is a beauty - a silver steed with lots of ornamentation surrounding its saddle, completely draped with fabric and armor. Of course, this opulence comes at a price - 26 Farm Cash, to be exact. As with other horses in the game, you'll be able to harvest from your Knight Steed once every three days (if left out of a Horse Stable), and you'll receive 140 coins when doing so.
Meanwhile, the Fairy Pig is also appropriately named, being a lovely peach pig with wings, a crown, and a magic wand that sparkles. You can pick up this cute pig for 18 Farm Cash. If left out of the Pig Pen, you'll be able to harvest from this Fairy Pig once every two days, receiving 30 coins in the process.
It's unknown as of this writing whether this will be an extended theme in FarmVille (consisting of multiple item releases), but these initial animals will be available in the game for the next two weeks. We'll be sure to let you know if more animals join them in the future.
