Snowcastle Games has been in full production for the past four years on their first major title, Earthlock: Festival of Magic, and it’s coming onto Xbox One on September 1. Not only that, but the game will also be the first of four titles to be part of the Games with Gold lineup for September, with the remaining titles to be announced next week.
This westernized turn-based RPG, which in subtle ways reveals its Scandinavian origin, starts as a simple quest, but develops into a deeper journey. Play as Amon and join several unlikely heroes to save Umbra, a beautiful but harsh world that mysteriously stopped spinning thousands of cycles ago. Mix up your strategy to beat your enemies by crafting ammo and materials, harvesting elemental plants, and customizing your characters’ talent tree.
We’ll be bringing you more news on Earthlock: Festival of Magic and September’s Games with Gold next week!
