Throughout its time in Steam Early Access, Hokko Life has been regularly expanded with new content and gameplay mechanics including: The Farming Update, which added a new area to the game and gave players the opportunity to flex their green fingers; The Village Chic Update, which introduced over 250 new hats, masks, glasses, and other accessories; The Super Shopper Update, which allows players to visit a new city centre location; The Narrative Update, which overhauled the introduction of the game, and introduced four new friendly villagers to Hokko Life; and most recently the Mayor Merits Update, allowing players to complete activities in game in exchange for ‘mayor merits’ that unlock perks designed to make life in Hokko a little easier.
 
For the full patch notes for each of the updates, please visit the Hokko Life Steam page.
