Trion did something this year that a lot of MMO studios don’t bother to do: brought existing MMOs to Gamescom. The studio unleashed information on all four of its existing MMOs, including Trove, which is due for a big update this fall. Says Trion,

Trove, Trion Worlds’ recently launched voxel MMO adventure game, has been a big hit amongst fans since it launched July 9. The upcoming Fall update, The Shadow Tower, will introduce an all-new class, the Lunar Lancer and endgame content as the game prepares to launch on Mac.

Check out the new screenies and lore video below.

Siphaed Enikuo They’re adding more uber worlds and I’ve read more than one comment from players wanting rewards exclusive rewards from it, like mounts and recipes. That’s what I’m worried about. I’m happy with how things are now.

Siphaed Enikuo Mine has been creating mounts, boats, fishing rods, and wings to experience the world with.  I’m pushing mastery level 30 and still haven’t touched a Shadow Arena.  I’ve unlocked six classes and none of them are at level 20.  Whee!

To each their own on the whole “end-game”, although I’m sure what you’re meaning is gear progression and obtainment.  Mine is gathering as many block recipes and materials as possible for expansion of my club world.  The club leader and many others are under the same mindset of gear progression and the likes, but I’m in it for the architecture and building.  They enjoy the fruits of my labor of a sweet club world while providing blocks and resources (excess to gear crafting, of course) that are obtained during those challenges.

I hope they don’t get too focused on endgame. I’d like to have just one game that doesn’t get tied up with the never-ending chore of trying to cater to the vertically-minded, hardcore prestige players. Trove is so good at horizontal progression – I wish they’d keep that as their focus. Although, if this shadow tower thing replaced the hourly challenges that are always lagging the servers, it would definitely be a welcomed addition.

A spear class! Saving my class coin for this!

That new class will be interesting to play.  Apparently one of the early reveals is that it is a anamorphic fox species.  That’s cool.
