As many of you might know, Supercell is likely preparing a special update to their most popular game Clash of Clans for Halloween. Hints have shown that this will be no minor update, such as a 30 minute maintenance break, but will include major changes to the landscape and how the game is played.
The update is confirmed to be Halloween themed. It will change the looks of a lot of things including settings and the GUI (Graphical User Interface) of a lot of buildings. Rumors have been going around that Supercell will introduce nighttime game play into the game, and I don’t know about you but that sounds awesome to me. I am very curious as to how this will change game play such as farming or even raiding in a clan war.
It has been reported that as night falls, buildings will glow from the inside with torches as well as gems will glow up the battlefield or your base. This will obviously looks extremely cool, but how will this affect people attacks? Visibility will obviously be a lot worse, so I think attacks will be a lot more challenging. But this adds nothing but a new challenge which in turn raises the interests of players. A lot of people think that Clash of Clans is just a casual game that people play and don’t really care about, but that is simply not the case. There is an extremely competitive side to the game where people compete to see who can gain the most trophies and stay in the highest league. This new feature that is being implemented into the game either has a lot of people curious and excited as to how this will effect attacks or worried and nervous that they won’t like it.
As for the people who do NOT like the idea of attacking while its ‘Nighttime’ in Clash of Clans, I have good news. This will be a SWITCHABLE option, so you can turn it off and on as you please. Though I think it is kind of weird that something that could have such a possible huge impact on the way people go about attacking and defending could just easily be switched off and on. But we will see how Supercell has managed to keep its balance in the game soon enough.
People who want more information about this upcoming update should definitely be looking forward to going to ClashCon. This year’s ClashCon will be the very first major convention for the game Clash of Clans. Expectations are high for ClashCon as it is expected that Supercell will be releasing a lot of information on future updated to the game as well as information on how the game will look and feel and function in the future. No one knows if developers are going to be dropping any major hints or spoilers just yet, we will just have to wait and find out! Some say that Clash of Clans is one of the fastest developing games the app store has ever seen so far. The numbers of people that have downloaded the game have grown exponentially in such a short amount of time it is crazy.
Sneak peaks about the upcoming update will also becoming out on this blog as they are posted on Supercells official forum. We will make sure to keep you guys updated, but as for now.. Clash on!
