I opened the game today to find that there will be two levels of a paid subscription service coming called "Pocket Camp Club." These will begin on 11/21.

One plan sees you appoint an animal caretaker to help out, while the other plan opens up "warehouses" to store items and receive fortune cookies.

What are everyone's thoughts about this? I'm a bit surprised to see this being added at this point, and don't play nearly enough to even think about subscribing.

yeah I'm surprised they waited so long if they had been planning to do something like this. it's only 4 months until new horizons, so it's not like we're gonna be starved for AC content in the long term. I think something like this would've made sense maybe a year ago, but at this point it seems so late.

anyways, unless there's more to this plan that they haven't revealed yet, I have 0 interest in it (not that I would get it anyway because again, NH in four months)

^I'm pretty sure these subscription services will be optional extras, while the game will remain the same for anyone who chooses not to get them

I also am very wary of it. As if leaf tickets doesn't cost enough. I love the game but you have to draw the line somewhere.

I will wait for more details.

HOLY DINKUS I posted that before finishing watching the videos and $7.99 A MONTH FOR THE COOKIE PLAN???? I was watching it like "this better be cheaper than the helper plan if all you're getting is 5 cookies a month" but no it's 5 DOLLARS MORE

anyway, there's absolutely no way I'm getting this. I don't even spring for most of the premium items with the free leaf tickets I've earned since there's no incentive for other players to visit my campsite, cabin or camper. I pretty much only spend leaf tickets on clothes and holiday items because those make me happy.

Ouch! It's honestly just disappointing that Nintendo would even offer this for that price (at least the cookie plan).

Forget the cookie plan I was going to try the free month but it won’t let me finalize.  That is weird.  Anyone else trying for the one month free

^it's not immediately obvious, but you have to scroll down on the list of information points before it lets you finalize. it took me a while of poking my finger around the screen to even realize that there was more to scroll down to

also reminder to everyone trying it out to make sure to go into the play store and cancel your subscription! if you wait too long, you'll get automatically charged when the next month rolls around. you'll still keep your animal helper the whole month, so it's best to cancel right away

I'm trying the free trial, but there's no way I'm going to pay for it going forward. As much as I love Kiki, I got annoyed pretty quickly with her following me around everywhere. Also, where is the camp caretaker getting the items to help out visitors when I'm not playing? I like to keep a certain amount of inventory on hand in case I need to restock my MB, so hopefully not from my supply. I'll have to look more closely at the details this weekend...

^honestly same, it's like get out of my way I'm tryna grab gyroids I know I can turn it off, but that feels like it'd defeat the purpose

also this might be kinda silly, but I don't like the reduced wait times for crafting things. because I've been playing since launch, all my craft times are reduced to 0 seconds, but I actually kinda like having something to anticipate with wait times. that's part of why I like AC in the first place I kinda wish it was wait times reduced by 50%

the one thing I'm looking forward to though is having a helper during the next gardening event. those events feel like you need to be constantly on top of them 24/7, but everything else I feel fine on my own.

^Right?? Gimme some space already, Kiki!

I totally agree, it's like when they added Pete's Parcel Service. It's helpful, especially when I need to get more seeds quickly during the gardening events, but I feel like it takes away from the whole point of playing the game.  Since this latest update, every time I open the game there are red exclamation points all over the place that I MUST get rid of because I'm so OCD about it.   

On one hand, I appreciate them trying to expedite things for us, but on the other hand they kind of need to just chill a bit...but yeah, the helper will be fantastic during gardening events!

Wow.

When people were asking for a subscription option (including myself) I don't think any of us imagined it would be so sucky and greedy.

I honestly can't believe how ridiculous the rewards are when you're giving them $8 a month. They're definitely in full 'milk em' while we got them folks' mode. And they're definitely banking on people forgetting to unsubscribe so they at least get a one time payment from you. It's always been a sleazy tactic IMO; but when you know minors (and really young ones at that) are being targeted like this it's plain gross.

oh yeah that was another thing I was gonna say, that those cookie jar islands really highlight how awful the cookie plan is. when you get five different cookies, all the furniture feels pretty useless. what kind of design am I going to make with a laser drone, a bakery counter, a fox statue, a fancy spoon and a flute? unless you get clothing, you'll need at least a handful of the same cookie to make anything cohesive. for free cookies I'm not complaining, but if I was paying for a plan I'd feel pretty ripped off, ESPECIALLY if I chose to get the same cookies and got doubles.

I really feel like for that price it should be something like you get one free cookie a day, or you get five cookies but you get to choose what you get instead of it being random.

On the map page there is a picture of your Camp Caretaker at the bottom right. Click on it and you will see all the info about the animal you have chosen. There is a button where you can choose to turn off the Walk Together option. If you do this, your Caretaker will remain at your campsite until you turn this back on again.
