Revealed at the start of last month, EARTHLOCK: Festival of Magic
will be getting an Extended Edition of the game. Including a "massively changed" story, side quests, mini games, new scenes, new characters, better animation, improved cut scenes, and crafting, the changes to the title are so large and numerous that developer Snowcastle Games decided to release this version as a completely new title, meaning that it will arrive with a new achievement list. Players won't have to wait long for this new edition, though, as the developer has announced that it will be arriving next month.
As well as the above changes, the game will launch in English, Norwegian and Japanese, the latter courtesy of new publisher CrossFunction. At some point after the Extended Edition has been released, hopefully "within the first 4-6 weeks", the following languages will be patched in:
Earthlock Extended Edition
- Chinese (Complete re-translation as original was poor)
- [NEW] Russian
- [NEW] Brazilian Portuguese
will be released on March 8th for US$29.99 or regional equivalent. Players who own Earthlock: Festival of Magic
, or who purchase the title before March 8th, will receive a copy of the Extended Edition for free. Once the Extended Edition of the game has been released, Earthlock: Festival of Magic
will be delisted from the Steam Store. If you wish to stack the versions and have yet to purchase the original version of the title, it's best to do this sooner rather than later.
