Publisher PM Studios has announced that the Pathea Games-developed My Time at Sandrock will launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch on September 26, 2023. Steam owners will also get to enjoy the full release. The PlayStation 4 version will launch at an unspecified time later in the year.
Further, the multiplayer cooperative mode will launch for PC first, with console owners set to receive it later in the year freely. Lastly, players of the game on Steam will gain a special gift item as thanks for playing the early access state, though the item itself has not been specified yet.
My Time at Sandrock was supposed to be DLC for My Time at Portia, but the project became much bigger, and they decided to make it a full sequel. The game is still inspired by Dark Cloud 2 and the Harvest Moon series, but this time they aim to focus on the narrative and build out each NPC of the town. This entry will feature a single-player-focused campaign, but one can invite other players to their game with multiplayer elements.
During gameplay, players assume the role of a Builder that has just arrived at Sandrock, which is currently in a lamentable state. Players will aim to make it a thriving village by completing tasks, and the game will feature an ending.
Additional gameplay tweaks have been added from My Time at Portia, so returning players will find gameplay implemented from feedback. The title will feature an action battle system and the option to romance some NPCs. Further, a playtime of roughly 60 hours is expected.
