Clash of Clan video game has gone live with its new Town Hall 11 update following the maintenance.
Clash of Clan players finally get the Town Hall 11 update today, 10 December, as promised by its developer Supercell, even as the game goes into maintenance.
For over two weeks now, Supercell had been revealing the salient features of this "huge" Town Hall 11 update (also known as the December update) via Sneak Peeks from Clash of Clan YouTube users.
Now that the update will finally dawn on the mobile sets, it has detailed all the features that will be part of the update.
We now know this new update will have two powerful additions that will be strategically important to players — Grand Warden and Eagle Artillery.
It will also see extra defences in the form of an extra Cannon, Archer Tower, Wizard Tower and X-Bow. Players will be able to attack with their Shield on and can make new Clan Spell donations.
The Town Hall 11 update also promises bigger Loot, League Bonuses and Trophy offers. Minion, Witch and Wizard Tower will level up with the update. There will also be a Village Guard who will protect from attacks and let players attack when they want.
The new update will bring several gameplay balances fans have been asking for, including increasing the battle time limit by 30 seconds, reduction in rearming costs for traps, reduction in cost for finding a match and "nexting" in Town Hall 10.
Check out the detailed features provided by Supercell via its official Forum:
