Trion released a dev blog introducing sandvox Trove’s cornerstone system to new players last night. Cornerstones are houses akin to a personal home base, a plot that you can build up and drag around with you from map to map, planting it anywhere there’s an unclaimed plot out in the world.
“Your Cornerstone is just for you; customize it to your heart’s content without any fear of losing what you’ve created! However, while the 16 x 16 space of your Cornerstone will always be with you, remember that the rest of the Trovian world is procedurally generated and changes over time. Anything built in the open world can be lost or modified by other players. With just a little bit of exploring, you’ll find amazing Cornerstone creations that have been assembled, piece by piece, by your fellow players.”
The studio is plotting a stream this Thursday to demo the Steam version and the new Tomb Raider Pack. Trove formally launches next week.
