Review: Lawn Mowing Simulator – Ancient Britain DLC
After being pleasantly surprised with Lawn Mowing Simulator (review here), I was very much looking forward to jumping back onto my favourite mower for the new Ancient Britain DLC.
There are no new huge additions to the gameplay; no Battle Royale mode where you’re mowing an ever decreasing garden space against other mowers, or no ‘capture the rake’ mode where the 1st to return 5 garden implements back to their team shed wins, instead there are four ancient heritage sites for you to hone your grass cutting skills in.
The new fictional areas are: Royal Stones, Druid’s Tor, The Ancient Aurochs and Aurochs Hill, all of which integrate with the games original areas and will pop up at random through your campaign play through, or can be accessed directly via free play.
These new areas are once again visually pleasing, giving a good sense of ‘being there’ as you carefully mow around an old building which is now a pub, an ancient collection of standing stones that will remind you of Stonehenge, and a very interesting area that, while it isn’t filled with obstacles, has you tactically working out how best to mow it with minimum clippings being left in certain areas.
The price of £6.99 (on Xbox) for 4 new areas may well be considered a little too much when the full base game is currently only £24.99 (available now on Gamepass too), but if you’re a dedicated Lawn Mowing Simulator player, then these areas will definitely give you your monies worth of enjoyment.
With this new DLC (and the new strimmer content too) Skyhook games are doing a good job of supporting the game, and I look forward to what other DLC they may release in the future…I’ll take my cut please if it’s ‘capture the rake’.
