EARTHLOCK 2 features a dynamic ecosystem simulator that sees the gameworld 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 colour 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.

“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!”
