'Trove' Sunrise Update Will Add New Class, New Biome And Much More Next Week - Trailer

by Rainier on June 22, 2022 @ 5:46 p.m. PDT

Trove is an open-ended voxel adventure through countless realms filled with quests, chests, and enemies great and small.

An MMO unlike any other, Trove is charming, quirky, full of exciting content and constantly evolving. Players can experience voxel-packed adventures in vast and colourful cubic worlds or brave the darkest of dungeons to deck themselves out in fancy armour and mighty skills. They can also hop in for a short burst of fun, participating in fiendish mini games and puzzles, or battling it out in the action-packed Bomber Royale mode, making the game perfectly suitable for a portable experience. Whether they prefer to fight, craft, trade, explore, build, or just simply hang out with friends, Trove’s got something for everyone.

While every world is newly generated and different from the last, characters can also join their friends’ private worlds at any time. Here, imagination runs free as they design their own playscapes, landmasses and structures, or even a boat racing course. The best ideas can even be submitted for implementation into the game itself - to date, over 5,000 player entries have been added to Trove by gamigo.

The game’s RPG aspect with a growing range of classes accommodates the most diverse playstyles. Players can switch between them on the fly, allowing them to take the fight up close and personal as a Candy Barbarian or just hang back and pester enemies from afar with powerful ranged attacks as a Fae Trickster. Steering a flamethrower-equipped dragon into battle is also a popular option.

gamigo is announcing a new day will dawn in Trove!

Starting one June 28, 2022, Trovians playing on PC can begin exploring the “Sunrise” update, which includes the new Solarion class, the new Sundered Uplands biome, Ultimate Bosses in new 5 Star Dungeons, and much more!

The new Solarion class works as a servant of the Sun Goddess to smite enemies through a combination of their bow for long-range attacks and a pet phoenix that rushes in with fast and fierce melee attacks. This fired-up class uses their Phoenix Radiance passive ability to increase their attack rate and gain energy to summon a pet phoenix to aid in battle. When the phoenix is slain, a self-healing egg will spawn and explode once its max health is reached. And from the egg’s ashes, the Solarion’s phoenix will rise again to aid their master once more!

Additional abilities for the Solarion include Solar Flare – a charged explosive shot that damages enemies over time – and Guiding Light – summoned pillars that damage enemies and heals friendly targets within their area. Their Ultimate Prismatic Blast deals damage to enemies surrounding the Solarion while stacking damage buffs up to 5 times. Once their energy is depleted, their Ultimate will stop.

Now that we’re well acquainted with the Solarion, it’s time to introduce players to Trove’s newest biome, Sundered Uplands. Trovians that reach Uber-1 Adventure Worlds can explore this biome’s unique upper and lower levels, but it’ll primarily be found in Uber-7 Adventure Worlds and will certainly give them more of a challenge than neighboring biomes. Be mindful that both levels aren’t created equal as the Irradiant Sky Giants build and expand land stolen from down below. This tips the balance of power in their favor, resulting in a biome filled with many challenges:

  • Don’t Look Down: The Cloud Layer is filled with rich resources the Irradiant Sky Giants have stolen from below, which Trovians will want to mine. The Ashen Wastes, on the other hand, are not as pleasant seeing how the fallout of the group’s reckless deeds festers and grows in strength down there.
  • Clipped Wings: Don’t expect to fly around as you please as the Sundered Uplands is covered in a Flight Suppression Field to deliver a permanent NO FLY ZONE. Although, there’s a rumor that Fungi Scrollpeddler may have something to help free Trovians from this debuff. You did not hear that from us, though!
  • Dangerous Dungeons: Dungeons will appear in both the top and bottom layers of Sundered Uplands. Special 5-star dungeons will spawn to offer more of a challenge as Trovians face off against one of the new Ultimate Bosses in addition to other new enemies.

With so many dangers ahead, Trovians will not be fighting with their backs against the wall as they can head to Fungal Outposts to gain access to Personal Chests, Flask Refillers, Loot Collectors, Fungi Adventures, and a variety of merchants. The new Crystal Gems can also be used to improve a Trovians’ gear to help them fight off the numerous monsters lurking in the Sundered Uplands.

Trove’s Sunrise update will be available on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch this summer.

Trove brings players into a universe of endless possibilities where role-playing and crafting collide, opening the development cycle and allowing everything in the game to be made by the community. Trove pushes the boundaries of community-created content, giving players the power to explore, craft and create adventures in procedurally generated worlds that are fully buildable and destructible. Traverse through unlimited dungeon variations, discover a limitless supply of loot, or harvest resources to craft a variety of useful and powerful items - Trove combines adventure, creation, and destruction in an endless universe of voxel worlds.

Trove is available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
