'Earthlock' (ALL) Free Upgrade To All Previous Owners

Earthlock: Festival of Magic is a turn-based RPG inspired by early 3D RPG's bringing back many familiar features in a refreshing and rejuvenating new form, shown off in a hand drawn art-style.

Desert scavenger Amon finds himself in the adventure of his life when he crosses paths with a most peculiar creature back home in Zaber. Join Amon and  other remarkable heroes in this turn-based fantasy RPG, on an unforgettable journey across the world of Umbra.

What starts as a simple quest for desert-scavenger Amon, develops into a journey. Several unlikely heroes join forces to save Umbra, a beautiful but harsh world that mysteriously stopped spinning thousands of cycles ago. Players roam Umbra and get to know the cast of unique characters. At the same time they test their tactics in expansive turn-based fights. Combat-turns happen instantaneously with overlapping moves for fast, responsive battles.

Snowcastle Games recently launched the massively upgraded re-release of its fantasy RPGEarthlock. Originally launched in 2016 as Earthlock: Festival of Magic, Snowcastle felt that this initial release was missing a lot of features the studio wanted to include but lacked the time and resources to implement. So instead, it used the game’s earning to spruce up its debut title over the next year and a half, before re-releasing it in 2018 under the abbreviated name Earthlock. The change was so drastic, that reviews increased from mid 60’s to 80.

Here’s the even better news: This upgrade is completely free for a full year until 22nd May 2019 to anyone who owns the original release of Earthlock: Festival of Magic! on PS4 or Xbox One. 

Unfortunately they are not able to offer digital key upgrades to PS4 owners in Europe, but can offer to exchange a PS4 EU disc for a Steam or Xbox One digital code. 

If you own a digital copy, then you already have permission to download this latest version of Earthlock.

If you own a physical copy on PS4 or Xbox One, you’ll have to provide proof of purchase by shipping your copy to Snowcastle Games in order to receive a new download code. Here’s how to do that:

  • Write your email address on a piece of paper.
  • Write on the same paper if you want a digital key for Steam, PS4 (North America) or Xbox One.
  • Put the paper with your email in an envelope.
  • Put the Earthlock: Festival of Magic disc in an envelope.
  • Send it to our office (address below). 
  • Be patient and eventually you will receive an email with a new game key.

Key Features

  • Character Talent Tree: allows each player to customize their character to match their unique style of play.
  • Character Combat Pairing: pair characters to create a battle bond, that upgrade with new combat perks.
  • Harvesting: harvest spud and elemental plants, and craft these materials into useful combat ammunition and potions.
  • No random Combat Engagements: each enemy is visible in the world which allows the gamer to kite enemies, creating large battles and maximizing experience points.

Earthlock's main story offers more than 30 hours of gameplay. Exploring the world of Umbra and its inhabitants and completing side-quests offers many more hours of gaming fun.

Earthlock is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC (Steam) for $29.99/ €24.99/ £23.99
