Animal Crossing: New Horizons is adding The Roost in next update

The Roost café and its bird owner Brewster will soon be heading to your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Along with the iconic barista bird, there is more planned free content coming to the game via a free update in November. A Nintendo Direct fully dedicated to Animal Crossing: New Horizons will arrive sometime in October.

Tune In This October for an Animal Crossing: New Horizons Direct!

Brewster is a pigeon that works at The Roost, a café usually found inside the museum in the Animal Crossing series. Brewster and The Roost have been in the series since Animal Crossing: Wild World. Usually, you can chat with Brewster and order a cup of coffee from him. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, you can give him Gyroids, which he will store for you.

The Roost has been one of the most requested features in Animal Crossing: New Horizons since it launched last year, making this a particularly notable update for frustrated fans. No further information has been revealed yet, but the Animal Crossing: New Horizons dedicated Direct in October should answer all of our questions.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons was released in March 2020 and has seen a slow drip of updates since its launch. Seasonal items and events were available to players, but the Brewster update seems to be the biggest addition to the game in quite some time. The Direct notes that the free content coming in November will bring more than just The Roost. We will find out more once the Direct comes our way next month.

Hulu sets a June premiere for The Orville: New Horizons
The cast of The Orville assembles on the spaceship's deck.

It's been nearly three years since The Orville season 2 came to an end on Fox. Hulu renewed the series in 2019, but production was stalled due to various COVID-19 delays. Until recently, the series' third season was set to premiere on March 10, but now Hulu has officially set The Orville: New Horizons to premiere on June 2.

The new premiere date was accompanied by a video preview that appears to be the opening moments of season 3. Within this scene, the Orville is in dire straits during an all-out space battle. But some of the imagery at the end makes us suspect that not everything is what it appears to be. Following the scene, you can watch the show's new opening credits sequence.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Turkey Day guide

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is celebrating the second Turkey Day event this year on November 25. Seasonal events are some of the most exciting reasons to jump back into the game for their unique and time-limited tasks, but mostly for the special rewards you can earn that you otherwise couldn't get your hands on. With the most recent 2.0 patch and DLC already having been released and marking the end of any substantial additions coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons, these events are even more important to participate in to keep the game, and your island, feeling fresh.

Turkey Day is a not-too-subtle reference to Thanksgiving but renamed so that players around the world will be able to associate with it. Also, the key new character for Turkey Day is himself a turkey, so the name feels quite appropriate. Last year offered a ton of great rewards for helping to whip up some seasonal dishes, and we expect this year to be quite similar. However, with cooking now being a part of the normal gameplay, there may be a few surprises in store when the 25th rolls around. If you want to get a (turkey) leg up on what to expect from this year's Turkey Day in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, here's a full guide on how to prepare.
