Nintendo has announced that Splatoon will be receiving a new ranked mode called Tower Control in which the player’s objective is to ride a single floating tower into the enemy’s base. Both teams rush toward the tower, which is initially placed in the center of the map, and the tower will start moving automatically once a player climbs aboard. Riding the tower will increase the chances of being splatted, however, as every player has his or her target on the tower.
You can check out the new game mode at 3:00 p.m. PT / 6:00 p.m. ET today during a special “Treehouse: Live with Splatoon Tower Control”. You can watch it through Twich here.
