goat simulator 3 and its predecessors embodied the spirit of chaotic fun, as you play as a goat whose silly pranks result in mass destruction and general destruction on the game’s urban island. It’s a far cry from the regressive, competitive environment of it all. Catan, the decades-old tabletop game that is also available in several online formats. The presence of animals – goats and sheep, respectively – unites these two different games, and to celebrate April Fools’ Day, the goat and sheep are switching places.
How, exactly, is this supposed to work? In Catan, the swap will be immediately visible to online players. The sheep cards in the game will be replaced with the visage of a goat from Goat Simulator named Pilgor. According to a press release about the crossover, “Catan players on the board game arena and Catan The console version will be able to see Pilgore in his interim state CatanThe new Goat for a limited time only until 23:59 (GMT) [or 7:59 ET] April 1st.”
If you like the board game version of Catan, you still have a chance to join in on the prank. US residents can enter Catan studios’ sweepstakes to potentially win Pilgore-themed resource cards for use in their home games. There are 30 packs of Pilgore cards available to be won; Fans can enter the sweepstakes through April 7.
During this, Goat Simulator 3 will be branding itself as Sheep Simulator 3And CatanThe Lost Sheep will do their best to live up to Pilgore’s reputation. She’s been very docile before, accepting her fate as whoever trades her in and for whom, but all of that ends now.
“We couldn’t be happier to welcome CatanThe sheep of San Angora,” Santiago Ferrero, creative director of Coffee Stain North, said in the press release about the event. “The sheep are basically more agile goats at the end of the day, so we know she’ll fit right in. The island could also use a break from troublesome Pilgore, which we’ve had some time to fill.” Keaton. As their resource goat. Since she’s technically 32 in goat years, it’s about time she tries her hooves at a proper job!”
