Splinterlands reveals Tower Defense Game
Splinterlands Tower Defense will have players use 2D towers, spells and heroes to take down waves of enemies, with the option to withdraw after the end of every wave in order collect the rewards or continue going for more rewards while risking losing all of it.
The developers of the well-known blockchain card game have announced a new title called Splinterlands Tower Defense (SPLTD).
Taking on the role of an underworld guardian, players will use various resources to set up defenses and fend off the dark army of the Nightmare Queen. As with the auto-battler card title, players will have a preparation phase in which they set up towers, heroes and spells on a 2D map, after which they watch the defending unfold either in normal or faster speeds, or simply choose to skip watching entirely and go straight to the results of the battle. After the end of a wave, the option to retreat and collect the earned rewards will be available, but so will the option to continue going for more waves in an effort to gain even more and risk losing all rewards.
There will be a variety of different upgradeable towers for players to use, some of which apply poison damage, slow down enemies and more. Spells will be upgradeable as well and can prove highly useful in successfully defending a wave, with some adding buffs to towers and heroes while others doing something specific, such as teleporting enemies back to the beginning of the path. Every hero will be unique and stand in the path of incoming hordes, using their own abilities to take down as many as they can and leaving the battle once they run out of health.

According to the roadmap, a closed beta is planned to launch either by the end of this year or in early 2023. An in-person event called Splinterfest 2022 was recently announced.
