What's all this then?

Earthlock released today on Xbox One and is free for anybody (cutting out the current £19.19 price tag) who claimed Earthlock: Festival of Magic when it was available as part of Games with Gold waaaay back in September 2016.

The Xbox Hub are saying that...

"Earthlock Shouldhavebeen Edition if you prefer, does what it says on the tin. This version of the game contains everything that the developers believed ‘shouldhavebeen’ in the original release, but for whatever reason were not.

This means gamers will be able to experience a re-thought, developed story with more depth, character and humour, as well as new scenes, new characters, improved cutscenes and much more. As well as this, side quests have also been added to the game for added content, whilst mini-games (think treasure hunting!) will also crop up."






Desert scavenger Amon soon finds himself in his life's adventure 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; a mysterious, beautiful but harsh planet that stopped spinning thousands of cycles ago.

With a unique set of customizable characters, all with their own personalities and journeys of self-discovery, you will scavenge, explore and fight your way from the everlasting day-side and into the darkness of perpetual night. To save Umbra you must unlock its secrets, expose the shadows, and defeat a growing evil beyond your wildest imagination!

It's not coming up for free to me yet I got the original GwG one
Just click install rather than buy. I thought the same as you.
It's still showing at £19.19 for me and I got it with gwg way back when. It's still installed as a matter of fact.

Yeah, it's still showing £19.19 for me too, as imaged. Just click install.
It doesn't say that I already own it but it did have an install button and BTO options like Game pass titles do.
Right okay. Think it's working now. Cheers. It's installing anyway and the old one is still there too. The new one is EARTHLOCK in capitals to differentiate from the first version I guess. It's a bit sneaky though since it will clearly accept payment of £19.19 for no reason...

Important to note: Anyone who owns Earthlock: Festival of Magic will get the new game for free (Steam/GOG/PS4/XboxOne).

Well you don't own Xbox One Games with Gold titles. It states to 'buy to own' for £19.19

Yes mate. It's just an update to the previous entry in 2016. BUT, if you've actually purchased it with coin on Xbox One, PS4, Steam or Gog, then the same applies.

It released on Steam, PS4 and Gog in March.
Man i got my Xbox a month after this was on games with gold
Cheers Buzz I read an article about this last week but forgot about it.

I couldn't get earthlock to start on my Xbox, just stuck on title screen. Hopefully this works
Just to note - The achievements are yet to show up on xbox live. (and there are meant to be achievements).
So to avoid having to potentially replay a portion of the game, I'd hold off starting this until they arrive.
If you care about that sort of thing obviously.

Thanks for the heads up OP.

EDIT - Achievements are live now.

Is this a completely different game to what was offered on GwG a while back or what? I don't think I'm understanding what's going on here.
Worked on the browser with the ready to install.
Why does it say 14 days remaining? I think its a timed trial. Because once I install it on the xbox, it doesnt show up under my already purchased list.

You are joking right? That is 14 days remaining of the discounted price if you were to purchase it.
