    Default Trion Unveils Voxel-Based Trove



    After a cryptic tease on the newly created @TroveGame Twitter account Wednesday, Trion Worlds officially revealed their newest project, Trove. The free-to-play game is described as “an open-ended voxel adventure through countless realms filled with quests, chests, and enemies great and small,” the game will offer procedurally generated voxel-based worlds with exploration, combat, crafting, and building.

    It makes sense that Trion would go in this direction. Before returning as Trion’s CEO, Scott Hartsman famously said that the content-development system for online gaming was “broken,” and having something different from the usual “patch every few months” that players quickly tire of is right up their alley.

    It’s also a clear continuation of the trend in gaming started by games like Minecraft and Cube World, and, eventually, EverQuest Next. Voxels and procedurally generated worlds are gaming’s new buzzwords these days, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see more such games in the next few years. Whether that will be a good thing or not remains to be seen.

    Trion is “launching Trove in alpha,” which we suppose means that access will be granted to select players as soon as a reasonably stable build is available. You can sign up for the game at the Trove site.

    What do you think? Does Trove look like something you’re interested in trying?

    Hmmm everyone is taking a shot at the 'make-it-your-own' mmo. I'm okay with this honestly, I'm quite curious as to who will come out on top.

    Since Cube Worlds underwhelming alpha launch and months without even a word about updates, Im actually pretty excited about this.

    Well, so far MineCraft is still on top, although I've never played it.

    Tried Cube World, the enemies attack you fast while you attack them slowly, plus I could never connect to another game, so I ended up playing alone for a few minutes, but the attacking got to me so I haven't touched it again.

    I meant the MMO of the make it your own style, in terms of just pure sandbox minecraft will have the top spot for awhile.

    WoW this looks horrible, a complete rip off of cubeworld and those characters look amazingly rubbish.

    this does look alot like cube world..

    But cube world is just bad..
    You look at the game and go its just like minecraft except no Building/Mining
    Also for how cool the combat Looks its so bland there is like a total of 2 skills per char.. how are you supposed technically LEVEL when all you do is level 2 skills...

    If they added actual mining/building/skills I would probably pick it up again.

    So far Trove looks to be a 10x better version then Cube World

    Interacting with the community. This should be one of the top priorities of ANY MMO developer!!

    It may look like Cube World, but I see something with way more potential than Cube World. This one actually interests me.
