Snowcastle Games has announced Earthlock: Festival of Magic will release for Xbox One and PC on September 1st. Additionally, it has also been revealed as A Games with Gold title for the month of September.
The turn-based RPG is also planned for a PlayStation 4 release, though beyond sometime this fall, no further information of when that may be was provided. Publisher Soedesco has also announced that the game will be available both digitally and retail.
Never heard of Earthlock: Festival of Magic? No worries, here is an official overview via the game’s official website:
“What starts as a simple quest for desert scavenger Amon soon sprawls into a journey where several unlikely heroes join to save Umbra, a beautiful but harsh world that mysteriously stopped spinning thousands of cycles ago.
Explore the world of Umbra and face myriads of monsters in exhilarating turn-based combat. Kiting lets you strategically take on as many enemies as you like. The more enemies the more experience gained.
Mix up your strategy to beat your enemies using two different stances per character, and build your characters’ battle bond to unleash powerful abilities or unique perks.
Customize each character’s progression with the Talent Table. Find new Talent Tiles in the world or craft your own. Grow plants and gather ingredients to craft ammo and items. All this on your idyllic home island”
Another rad looking game that has completely flown under my radar….man, I need to step my game up.

I completely forgot this existed. I remember looking at it last year and I thought it was a pretty cool looking game.
I’m glad it’s coming out so soon. I’ll have something to play in September.

Yeah, it’s free if you have an Xbox One (and have Gold). It looks great, hopefully the lack of information flow isn’t a bad sign of the state of the game, which it can be.
I’m not into consoles anymore so I’ll have to buy it on PC. I’ll most likely find it really cheap too :].
Lack of info could mean many things. Maybe the devs didn’t have the budget to advertise or they just don’t have a PR person.
