With the 1.5 release of Temple Run 2 comes the Artifacts challenge! Immediately after getting this update, I proceeded to make a run to find out – “how do I ‘discover’ these artifacts?”. After a couple of runs under 10,000 meters, I didn’t find anything. I then made a third attempt and found my first ‘treasure chest’ at around the 11,500 meter mark. The treasure chest was in the same position as any power up would be. The right timing allows you to pick it up just the same. The screenshots below show the discovery after I died. Sorry – I was not able to get a screenshot of the treasure chest before I picked it up – maybe next time!
From the looks of the Artifacts section in the game, it looks like Imangi has a full artifact release schedule setup. And, as you can see from the screenshots, new objectives come with the Artifact challenges. Great job Imangi!
Update: Uh-oh…. I just ran over 22,000 meters with Usain Bolt and NO ARTIFACTS available… I have a feeling only the “real treasure hunters” can uncover artifacts. More to follow…
Update 2: Second run with Guy Dangerous, 13,300 meters, no artifacts. Could it be that each character has to find one each before the same character can find a second? More to follow…..
Update 3: Just discovered a new artifact with Scarlett Fox.
