Publisher and developer Pathea Games's well-received farming sim RPG My Time At Portia is getting a follow-up this year in the shape of My Time At Sandrock, whose release date happens to be relatively close.
With a successful Kickstarter campaign behind it, the new year brings us closer to the My Time At Sandrock release date, which is currently slated to occur in the first part of 2021. Set in a post-apocalyptic world and taking place 300 years after an event called the Day of Calamity, the follow-up looks to build on what Portia offered.
"For now, we aim to release the Early Access version in March 2021, but that isn't 100% confirmed. If not March, soon after." reads the game's Steam description. The page lists My Time At Sandrock's release date as March 31, although that doesn't seem to have been officially locked down by the developer. Nevertheless, this gives us a better idea of when we can expect the farming sim to launch.
My Time At Sandrock will first be available on PC, through Steam, where it will launch in Early Access. Later in 2021, it will make its way to the Epic Games Store, Gog.com and WeGame. It will then arrive on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and Nintendo Switch in 2022.
The developer plans on spending one year in Early Access, working on the game alongside its community. Initially, "players will be able to play some of the first act of the game’s story and have access to romance and friendship missions as we implement them."
Aside from the different setting – which from the screenshots has a western vibe –, Sandrock will feature a "vastly enriched storyline, hundreds of side-quests boasting over 30 completely new characters, each getting more attention than before" as well as a revamped combat system.
You'll still have to rebuild and maintain a workshop, craft resources, grow and sell crops, so there should be plenty that feels familiar. You can follow the game on Steam where it can also be wishlisted. The latter contributes to adding certain features to the roadmap.
