In EARTHLOCK 2, you, alongside a band of voyagers, stand at the precipice of danger and glory. A vast desert of mystery and possibility awaits for you to explore and transform into an Oasis full of life. You will explore this world with your trusty Desert Ship. The ship starts out as a humble mode of transportation, but with time and effort, it will become your mobile base of operations, and instill fear into your enemies in the desert. Rise to become the most formidable Explorer of Umbra!

The series is set on the planet of Umbra, which has stopped spinning on its axis, meaning half of the world is completely shrouded in darkness, while the other half is constantly baked in sunlight. Along the border in the middle, there is an area that gets the best of both worlds. The story centers around a group of friends who must set out to find and rescue their missing family members. EARTHLOCK 2 will be an open-world action RPG with complex interlocking systems that work together to offer players extensive freedom to customize their own experience.

“Though work on EARTHLOCK 2 first started back in 2019, development didn’t go in the direction we wanted and we had to take a break to refresh our core vision,” explained Bendik Stang, Game Director & Co-founder of Snowcastle Games. “Having done that work behind the scenes and with re-started development moving fantastically, we’re delighted to re-present EARTHLOCK 2 to the world with our new trailer and we’re very excited to share details about Desert Ships and our dynamic biomes with our wonderful community who has been patiently waiting for information about the next entry in the EARTHLOCK series!”

EARTHLOCK 2 features a dynamic ecosystem simulator that sees the game world change over time and respond to the actions of the player. The Desert of Kor will be your canvas that you can paint with new life, bringing color and vibrancy to the world. This new life will mean new dangers and challenges for you to deal with and each biome will have different requirements when it comes to nurturing it to its full potential. Doing so will be well worth it, however, thanks to the riches and treasures you will receive to help you on your adventure. You can read more about biomes here.

Those rewards will feed into your Desert Ship, the vehicle that will be key to your experience in EARTHLOCK 2. This customizable contraption is a means of transportation, a mobile base, and a weapon that will become a reflection of your journey as you grow and upgrade it over time. Tailor it to suit your playstyle, recruit adventures to join your crew, equip it with advanced technologies that give it resilience to harsh elements, and outfit it with utilities that will help you survive in the unforgiving desert.

EARTHLOCK 2 will be available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC (Steam). A release date was not revealed.
