Even Trove is getting a battle royale mode – it’s called Bomber Royale

Trion’s voxelbox Trove is getting its very own battle royale mode, after a fashion. It’s called Bomber Royale, and its plain aim is to revivify the game’s wilted PvP, complete with destructible terrain and the now-classic playfield shrink as the match wears on.

Trove Bomber Royale brings a new spin on the game’s competitive combat, allowing for throwdowns of up to 20 people in an exciting and chaotic new twist on battle royale gameplay, whipping bombs at each other, collecting power-ups, and wrecking the terrain until only one Trovian is left standing! In Trove Bomber Royale, the gameplay is fast and frenetic, where players are placed onto one of three different maps together, and must throw bombs at each other in order to be the sole survivor of the skirmish. There are several different bomb types at your disposal, including bouncing bombs, sticky bombs, and more. Players can also utilize a variety of moves and power-ups, including a grappling hook to zip away from (or towards) danger and healing-based items.”

Naturally, participants can expect “seasonal currency” to spend on loot, including auras. “Loot tables are refreshed often, and any experience that you gain for your character in the Bomber Royale mode will carry over to your adventures in Trove,” says Trion. The update is slatted for all platforms (PC and console) this summer and should be playable at E3.

At least the “Royale” term lets me know it’s something I can instantly skip and not waste any time on.

I didn’t even think Battle Royale when I read this. I thought of Bomberman in a 3D, Z-axis environment. Dunno if that’s good or bad.

with competitive, free-for-all combat against 19 other players. Hence the “battle royale” title.

Lots of games do last man standing, especially old school multiplayer titles. They’ve just outgrown 4/8/16 player limitations common in local multiplayer ;P

Good gravy, man! What about all the little children!

Just kidding! They have been killing each other’s pokemons for years.

As long as we’re talking about Battle Royale modes, DotA2 added a (temporary) Battle Royale mode called The Underhollow, exclusive to Battle Pass owners, where multiple teams of 3 players duke out in search of cheese while the cave system they are exploring slowly collapses.

Could’ve sworn their initial PvP mode was already a battle royale-ish thing. Though it’s been a few years since I cared to pay attention to what Trove is up to.

Probably not a big shocker to people, another battle royale.

The devs have been teasing a new pvp mode for the past two week or so during the weekly live streams. I think pretty much everyone who watched guessed that it would be a battle royal mode of some description.

I might take a look at it but I am not playing Trove for pvp so at the moment I don’t really see myself playing it much.
