It’s time to get underground and see what waits within the caverns of a new planet. Today is the Trove – Geode release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, granting everyone who plays Trion’s boxy MMORPG their chance to go spelunking in a totally new setting.
Just like it was described when the new content was first announced, Geode will focus more on exploration as players get to head to the titular planet Geode and weave their way through the labyrinthine tunnels that snake through it. Exploring these tunnels yields eggs that can be hatched into helpful companions, while the update also has new Mastery rewards including weapons, costumes, hats, wings and mounts.
Of course, the update also introduces the battle royale mode of the 20-person Bomber Royale, mixing up the traditional last-person-standing gameplay of the sub-genre with a variety of different types of explosives.
The initial launch of Trove – Geode is just the first step in what’s planned to be a series of additional updates for the new area, with promises of a mission to help save planet Geode to be added later in what sounds like a series of patches to arrive sometime post-launch. For now, the update should be live by the time you’re reading this.
We’re certainly very curious about what this mission to save Geode is all about, but for the time being we’re going to look forward to all of the cave-dwelling and exploration that Trove – Geode is offering at the interim.
