The long-lasting desert is yours to explore. Encounter unique creatures, dive into unique biomes such as canyons and dungeons, loot essential materials, but beware of a challenge that awaits: the King’s Royal Army, commanded by the Supreme Commander Zeu, is coming… No respite allowed!

The end is only the beginning, as beyond the dunes lies an unknown lush world to explore, populated by even more unique and dangerous enemies to overcome. Be ready to dive into an epic adventure!

Raise your fists to join the battle!

In combat, Beelzebub is a ferocious fighter that has access to light and heavy attacks, which can be executed both on the ground as well as in the air. In addition to offense, don't forget that you can also employ defensive skills such as dodging, which you can do in midair and sideways! And that is not all… Approach enemies without a sound, then launch a surprise assault, that will paralyze them with fear.

As you progress in your journey and defeat harder and harder enemies, you will level up and gain points that can be spent to power-up Beelzebub's skills, such as stronger combos, the ability to turn your body to metal or even an exclusive demonic skill… the Dark Release.  

Still, never leave your friends behind! You can spend points to power up and unlock skills for Rao and Thief as well. Rao will support you during fights by riding on the tank temporarily and attacking enemies, while Thief's talents will be evident outside of combats, as he helps you get additional items or hunt for rarer loot.

Even the strongest heroes need a power up, so don’t forget to anticipate and manage your supplies! Consumable items can increase your strengths and defence, so make sure you stock up. Also, water is an important resource that you can restock in Water Supply Points, and will be consumed to heal you, in case you are about to be defeated…

Soon enough, you will have to trade Rao’s car for bigger and better vehicles, that your new mate Ann will help you build, upgrade, and equip.

All vehicles in Sand Land have unique features! The Jump Bot will bounce over high cliffs, the Battle Armor can move heavy obstacles, and the Hover Car can float over water to cross the most dangerous rivers. Remember that you can carry up to five capsules each containing a vehicle, so plan ahead!

Vehicles can also be used in combat! Equipped with powerful and different weapons such as Rocket Launchers, Lasers, Machines or Shotguns, you can be sure to always have the right tool for the occasion!

New engines, suspensions and unique accessories will also improve the driving and boosting performances, while option parts will unlock special new features. Remember that every part changes the statistics of the vehicle.

Want to kick things up a notch? Once your vehicle is fully equipped as you like, pay a visit to the Paint Shop to color it the way it reflects your style! A lot of pretty decals are also available for you to create the ideal vehicle!

During your quest, you will need a place to call home. Welcome to Spino, the perfect place to rest between two intense battles!


Even though it may look ravaged and decadent, this settlement is the perfect place to set camp in: it has a garage to build and upgrade your vehicles, as well as merchants to purchase items to.

At the back of the garage, you can create the ideal room that can be extended up to three times and arranged with a wide selection of furniture, including walls, ceilings, and much furniture, whether in a modern, hideout, cyber, or woods style.

When starting out, Spino may not have many citizens, but it has the potential to grow. All it needs is… a heroic misfit to rebuild it! As you complete side quests, recover items, or defeat enemies, the town will evolve to the next stage with rarer components to purchase, new services to hire, and new opportunities for adventures!
