We’re beyond excited to share the new competitive multiplayer mode coming to Trove this summer: Trove Bomber Royale!
Trove Bomber Royale mode?
We’re glad you asked! Trove Bomber Royale is a frenetic new competitive combat mode coming to Trove in our next big expansion later this summer. Your mission? To be the last Trovian standing.
Up to 20 Trovians can hop into a Bomber Royale match but once 15 players join up the countdown begins to kick off the match. You’ll find yourself on a glass platform where you can position yourself on the map in whatever way suits your play style.
Once the start timer runs out the platform begins to quickly disintegrate allowing players to fall down onto the arena map below.
How’s it different from the Battle Arena?
Another great question! Bomber Royale achieves a completely balanced competitive environment by giving all Trovians the same two core abilities: Rubber Bombs and Climbing Claw.
Rubber Bombs are thrown explosives that bounce off the first surface they hit and explode on the second surface.
Climbing Claw is a grappling hook that sticks into the terrain and pulls you to the point of contact. This is great for saving yourself from falling off the arena map, escaping incoming attacks, or getting up close and personal with other players who look like they could use a bouncing bomb to the kidneys.
What else can we look forward to in Bomber Royale?
Bomber Royale maps come littered with power ups. Run through a power up block on the map to claim that powerup as your own. These power ups can reduce the cooldown of your attacks, empower your other attacks with devastating modifications, and much more!
We have to warn you that the Bomber Royale maps are completely destructible and literally everyone has an unlimited collection of bombs. If that’s not scary enough, the map will disintegrate over time so players are going to struggle to find sure footing by the time the match is down to the last few players.
After you’re victorious, or if you’re somehow defeated, you can queue up for the next match or jump back into the Hub. If you’re new to Trove, or just looking to level up a new class, Trove Bomber Royale gives XP so you can level up while kicking cubic butt!
In addition to the sweet, sweet XP you can also look forward to an all-new reward system for Trove Bomber Royale.* More news on that to come down the road.
You’ll be able to test Trove Bomber Royale mode very soon and we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback. Look forward to more power ups and new maps being added in the future!
Trove Bomber Royale mode will launch with our big summer expansion, but it’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Be sure to follow us on Twitter @TroveGame to stay up to date on all the latest news coming in the weeks ahead.
*Rewards for the original Battle Arena can still be earned by joining Team Death Match or Capture the Flag maps found in Club Worlds.
