Splatoon is about to get another massive update, and yes, this one is free as well. The Splatoon Tumblr page has revealed that the newest Ranked Battle mode, called Tower Control, will release tomorrow at 7pm PT.
“Tomorrow, on 7/1 at 7 PM PT, a new Ranked Battle will be added to the game! This new mode is called Tower Control. Hop aboard the tower placed in the middle of the map, and ride it to your opponent’s goal. stay sharp—you’ll have to protect whoever’s riding the tower from enemy attacks!
Once someone jumps onto the tower, it starts moving along a set path toward the other team’s goal. If the tower doesn’t arrive at either goal before time runs out, the team that’s moved it closest toward their opponent’s goal wins. Ride the tower all the way into the other team’s goal though, and you’ll get a decisive knockout victory.”
This is but the latest in a long line of updates Splatoon has received since launching just over a month ago. From free weapons and gear, to new stages, and now another gameplay mode, Splatoon is not lacking for content.
