Tower Control Mode Coming to Splatoon Tomorrow

Splatoon Tower Control

The official Splatoon blog has just announced that tomorrow, July 1st at 7pm PT/ 10pm ET,  the Tower Control battle mode will be headed to the game. In Tower Control, the main objective is to hop on a platform in the middle of the map and ride it to the opposing team’s base (pretty much mission impossible). Here’s what was said.

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!

If the platform doesn’t make it to the opposing team’s base before the time runs out, this is what happens.

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.

Finally, if you don’t own Splatoon (seriously, pick it up) you’ll be able to catch the Nintendo Treehouse playing the Tower Control mode on starting at 3pm PT / 6pm ET today.
