  • Geode - How Stories Light Up a World

    There is so much more to Trove than meets the eye. Beyond the bold colors, voxel aesthetics and churning content constantly updated to keep us occupied is also story. Albeit, scattered story that mainly came to life when a new biome did, as well as via items in the game. Until Now with Trove Geode.

  • The Best MMOs of 2018 So Far

    It’s not been a good year for brand spanking new games in the MMORPG realm. Heck, when was the last time it was? But that doesn’t mean the games we already have haven’t been making a strong showing. In fact, some of the most popular games in the world right now are those that have been out for years already. Here is our list of the Best MMOs of 2018 So Far (in no particular order).

  • Geode & Bomber Royale Preview

    I never thought voxel MMO Trove could get anymore brighter or cuter but Trion Worlds has proven me wrong announcing Trove Geode and Bomber Royale last month, releasing both updates on the Public Test Shard shortly after. Yours truly has been on there taking it all in and this is what I have discovered.

  • Heroes Expansion Brings Superhero-Sized Fun

    Trion Worlds is getting ready to bring Trove players superhero-sized fun with the Heroes content expansion coming on March 27th. Last week, I had the chance to check out Heroes with Senior Producer James Karras and Animator Ted Sanger and I have to say, it's shaping up to bring some very cool features and more to players. Let's take a look.

  • Trove is the Most Original MMO Right Now

    Often in the MMO world, we get a little tired of seeing the same game released by different companies and called something new. There are gems that try to break the mold, but few really just go for it. Perhaps it’s the general freedom afforded by the IP and visual stylings, but the bravest MMO on the market right now is none other than Trion Worlds’ Trove.

  • Adventures Developer Tour & Preview

    A massive Trove: Adventures update arrives on November 14th so today we had the opportunity to sit down with Trion Worlds developers Robin “Twixler” Luera (Trove Lead Art/Animator) and Ted “Dopesheet” Sanger (Trove Senior Animator) to find out what all the voxel fuss was about!

  • PAX West 2017 - Hands On with Eclipse

    The voxel art styled MMO action adventure world of Trove just recently got a brand new update in the Eclipse expansion. But the team is already hard at work at improving the player experience even more. I got my first hands-on session with the game while on the at PAX this year.

  • Today’s Eclipse Update is a Doozy

    TROVE is the colorful, carefree, but feature-packed MMORPG that keeps on getting bigger. Trion Worlds today launches the Eclipse update, a day later than that other Eclipse. We were fortunate enough to run through a demo of the content on deck, and bring you this report today as the patch goes live on servers.

  • Megalithic Update Interview

    This week we spoke to the Trove team about the Megalithic update’s launch on consoles. With PC players already in sync, the great news is from now on Trion will be launching all future updates across all platforms. So no more waiting and out of sync events. The Megalithic update has some great features and the Dino Tamer class who fits right along the Jurassic Jungle new zone. We spoke to the team on how the game has been ported over to console play and what players can expect from the update.

  • Of Leaderboards and Shadow Worlds

    As we near closer and closer to the launch date of Trove’s Mantle of Power update, we’ve been talking with Trion’s Andrew Krausnick about all the different features coming to the game. Now, sneakily, the Trion folks put in the Leaderboards’ first incarnation just this week. We got a look at how those will work, plus a sneak peek at the never before seen Shadow Worlds – Trove’s hardest content yet.

  • New Stellar Loot and a Tease of Gems to Come

    We’re counting down the weeks until Trove’s big Mantle of Power update by taking quick looks at each of the new features coming with the expansion when it drops. Today, it’s all about the new tier of gear known simply as Stellar.

  • The New Worlds of Mantle of Power

    Trove's Mantle of Power update is weeks away, but that doesn't mean Trion Worlds is feeling shy about letting us know what to expect. Read on for our exclusive first look at the new worlds coming in Trove's big update.

  • The Mantle of Power Changes the Game Forever

    Listen up Trove fans: your game is about to get its biggest update ever in the coming weeks when the Mantle of Power expansion lands on the live servers. Focused intensely on progression, there are 10 new levels per class, and a brand new Gem System that augments each of the game’s 14 classes with dozens of new abilities. Read on for the full details on this and more.

  • Fish, Ships, and Corgis at PAX East

    Trion hasn’t released tools for content creation in Trove, instead, resourceful players have basically developed their own tools and mod loaders to work with the game’s assets and come up with their own creations. One player even created a pair of Corgi guns.

  • A Cubed MMORPG

    Trion is taking on Minecraft and SoE’s Landmark with their own brand of sandbox cuteness with Trove, a voxel building multiplayer, online sandbox MMORPG. Graphically more akin to Minecraft than Landmark, Trove provides a different color of sandbox for players that enjoy the building game with some fighting, collecting and crafting thrown in for the fun of it. We got some time with the title at PAX to discuss the recent additions and upcoming closed beta.

  • Player-Generated Awesomeness

    In keeping with the relatively new notion of transparent development, the makers of sandbox game Trove have let players in since the game hit alpha. Continuing the tradition, last week, the game's publisher Trion Worlds invited me to see the game in its current state during an in-office Community Day event. Fortunate timing that, since it allowed me to see lots of cool player-made content before it gets swept away by the end-of-alpha apocalypse.

  • GDC 2014 Preview: Cute but Complex

    Although ArcheAge was very much my game of show at GDC last week, another of Trion Worlds’ games took a close second: the delightfully cute and complex Trove. It’s silly, it’s visually appealing, and it’s seemingly chock full of collaborative adventure.

  • The Gunslinger is About to Fire

    We caught up with Trove’s Andrew Krausnick to talk about some of the new and upcoming additions to Trion’s world-building, destroying, raptor riding, sword swinging, soon to be pistol-wielding adventure MMO. The small, but growing team has been hard at work since returning from the holidays, and in just a few short weeks since our last update a slew of new additions have gone live in the alpha. Read on to find out what’s new and what’s coming soon to the voxel-based adventure.

  • Digging and Destroying in Trove Alpha

    Trove is one of those games that doesn't quite fit into any preconceived mold. Yes, it looks a lot like Cube World of Minecraft, but that's merely a result of the voxel-based graphics. What lies inside is an open RPG world with potential for serious creativity an adventures with friends. We recently took the game for a spin, and have a few thoughts on Trove's early alpha build.

  • Trion's Next Big Thing

    What if you could play a game where the sense of newness and awe never went away, because the worlds you explored were different each time you played? That's the fundamental concept behind Trion's Trove, a game the company is calling a "Massive Multiverse Adventure". Read on for what exactly that is, and why Trion's so excited for this new project.

  • Scott Hartsman: Atlas Reactor, Lootboxes, Rift and the Changing Economy of Games

    Scott Hartsman of Trion Worlds is one of gaming’s most open and candid CEO’s. During PAX West 2016, he and I sat down to discuss Trion Worlds’ games, past, present, and future. When I found him, he was sitting at the front desk, handing out codes for free items, talking with fans, and telling people about Atlas Reactor. We found two chairs, and went off the rails into all manner of uncharted discussions.

  • Making the Move to PS4

    Trion’s voxel MMO Trove has been a huge success on the PC. Now the team is working on the port to consoles and giving players an even bigger world to enjoy. We sat down with Andrew Krausnick to go over what it is like to transfer an MMO to the PS4. Andrew also gave us some insight on the game’s upcoming content, so jump in and read as we continue our Trove coverage with their big move!

  • Harnessing the Power of Elemental Gems

    When Trion Worlds releases the Trove expansion called Mantle of Power, one new system is going to give players some awesome reasons to chase down and access the power of the elements: Gems. With the new gem system, players will be able to get hold of powerful jewels to socket that will create some amazing (and interesting!) new class abilities.

  • Battle Arena - New PvP Action with a Trovian Touch

    PvP will be entering Trove in a big way with the arrival of the 5v5 Battle Arena. We had the opportunity to speak with Executive Producer Andrew Krausnick about all of the special Trovian touches that are being brought to bear in the Battle Arena and about the possibility of even more PvP being added over time.

  • Trion’s Glyph Aims to Make You Not Hate Launchers

    The first thing I thought when Trion announced its Glyph game launcher and sales platform was admittedly, “God, not another one.” Then, after talking to Scott Hartsman and Anais Grueb from the developer and publishing parent, my reservation has moved to bright optimism. Trion’s goal isn’t to compete with Steam or shove their cash shop purchases down your throat. They plan on carefully curating and hand-picking the titles they partner with to be featured on Glyph.

  • So Update. Much Fastness.

    Yes, we just used the tired Doge meme. Deal with it. Late last week, I sat down to chat with Trove’s Creative Director, Andrew Krausnick about all the work their small team’s done on the game since opening it up to an NDA-less Alpha. Before the nice long deserved break at Trion’s San Francisco offices, Andrew and I went over everything the team’s added in the past couple of weeks since we last took a look at Trove.

  • Millions of Voxels, Millions of Players

    Trove, since launching last month officially on Steam and Glyph, has quickly become the #4 title on Valve’s store, and Trion just today is announcing that 1 million active monthly users log into the voxel-based MMORPG. In short, Trove is a certified hit, and even Trion was caught off guard with its success.

  • Five Games to Watch in the Second Half of 2015

    It’s hard to believe that it’s July, and we’ve already seen a number of highly-anticipated titles release in the first half of the year. Pillars of Eternity, The Witcher 3, and Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward are all out, The Elder Scrolls Online has launched on consoles, and there have been open beta or “live” releases for Trove, Heroes of the Storm, and Skyforge.

  • Trove Builds on Cube World’s Legacy

    It would be easy to take one look at Trove and dismiss it as a cutesy entry into the MMORPG genre that is increasingly hanging its hat on the term “voxel.” To do so, however, would be a mistake. It is no secret that Trove is inspired by Cube World from Picroma but instead of blatantly ripping off that indie flash in the pan Trion has spent the past two years developing Trove and has iterated it into something more.

  • The Top 7 Best MMOs of 2015…So Far

    I’m not going to lie to you: 2015 hasn’t exactly been full of big moments of big announcements. Maybe it’s because all of the best ideas are already taken, maybe it’s because everyone likes different things, or maybe it’s because developers and publishers are getting lazy, but there’s no denying the fact that the MMO genre has seen better years. From a lack of real excitement or hype around releases, to a lack of innovation, it’s not like it used to be.

  • Five Reasons Why You Should Be Playing Trove

    On a whim, I downloaded and started playing Trove a few days ago, oblivious to its launch this week. I had previewed it a little during the alpha and kept one eye on it while playing other things, but hadn’t paid close attention to any of the game’s updates through beta and leading up to release.

  • 9 of The Cutest NPCs in MMORPGs

    Ah, NPCs. They are such a staple in our MMOs that we not only take them for granted, but we can also ignore them. I always make an attempt to appreciate an MMO’s details, and NPCs are often some of most well-designed aspects of many of our favorite titles.
