"Boom Beach," the strategy video game from developer Supercell, has let players get a sneak peek into the upcoming June update that promises to add new troop unit, additional features like Troop Loadouts, Friendly Battles, Ranks and more.
Supercell shared its details about the new June update via a post on its official forum.
The Cryoneer – June update would bring a new troop unit called The Cryoneer, who can freeze his enemies, buildings. The troop is able to slow down the enemy and is able to deal a low level of damage. When deployed, the troop moves with moderate speed and has a medium range.
This troop unit is unlockable at HQ level 20. Good companion for Zookas and Heavies. But the Cryoneer's attack can cause friendly fire issues too.
Legend Ranks – Players will be motivated to reach the highest levels in order to unlock Legendary ranks that would earn big rewards on a daily basis.
Troop Loadouts – Players would not only be able to save their favourite troop combinations but would also be able to switch troops and hasten the loading up of Landing Crafts. Players can do this by tapping on their Gunboat and selecting the blue troop icon.
This feature starts from Gunboat level 10. It is expected to have two slots initially and additional slots would unlock at Gunboat levels 13, 16, 19 and 21.
Friendly Battles – Supercell recently introduced this feature for its popular video game, "Clash of Clans" and now teases the feature for "Boom Beach" too. Players would be able to challenge their friends at their Task Force via the blue "Challenge" button on top of the chat window. Pressing it will send a message asking players if they are ready for the challenge. The battle can be replayed.
