Update 2.2 will be the 12th major update of Geometry Dash with no set release date.

Gameplay was first shown with the arrival of Geometry Dash SubZero. It will introduce at least one new level, a new game-mode (the mechanics are speculated to be similar to the Swing Copter from the arcade game of the same name), more unlockable icons, the ability to place the level ending (possible), new triggers, extended camera panning and controls, a new vault, new designs in the level editor, moving backwards, a Challenge or Multiplayer Mode (which includes a chatroom), the ability to use two buttons to move the player both left and right in a more RPG platformer style, and new abilities for in-game moderators (along with some changes). Due to the new triggers, an increase in the maximum level length is also possible.

It is possible to either copy a level into Geometry Dash World or use a hacked APK of Geometry Dash SubZero to gain access to the 2.2 version of the level editor, which does not contain all of the features, but gives a preview into what Free Fly, Reverse and Camera will look like in custom levels.
