Shelter 2 is similar to the original Shelter but here the player is in control of a lynx and not a badger. The aim of the game is still to protect four cubs but the environments are more open allowing the player to explore the world more freely. As the player moves through the world the seasons and weather change, from cold winters to rainy autumns.

The game starts with the mother being pregnant and having to run away from a group of chasing wolves. Once having reached the safety of the den the cubs are born and the player can name each of them. From then on the player's main task is to hunt down food such as rabbits, birds and deer and bring it to the den. As they grow larger they will start following their mother out in the wilderness and start catching their own prey until they are large enough to move on on their own. Most animals are hunted by simply running after them while some like the deer require jumping onto. The lynx has a stamina meter and when its emptied it can not run until it recharges. To make it easier to find food there is a smell function which when used shows the animals in red against a grey background.

In the world there are also some predators that the player has to watch out for or the cubs might get killed. This include wolves, bears, eagles and foxes. Wolves for example appear on the tundra and when they do the player has to find a plateau that the wolves can't reach and jump onto it. If not the player gets knocked out and when waking up again one of the cubs will be gone. In addition to the predators there are also some environmental dangers to watch out for, such as fog and fires.
