There is a changing of the guard on the Trove team. In a new producer's letter, Andrew "Avarem" Krausnick has announced that he is leaving Trion to pursue a new job with a small studio. He calls it "getting back to basics" that will allow him to work on smaller, more experimental projects. Rick "Din Othar" White will be taking over from Krausnick and has revealed some of his vision for Trove.
PlayStation 4 and XBox One players will be happy to hear that Trove has successfully exited beta testing and is now in full release. To celebrate, Trion has released a Getting Started video to help get newbs started in the game by introducing some of its console features including the new Inventory AI, Loot Collector and more.
Trion Worlds has sent word that Trove for PlayStation 4 and XBox One will officially launch on March 14th and that nearly four million players have taken part in the console open beta. PlayStation 4 players who take part in the currently ongoing beta will receive the Chromatic Cumulus mount, while XBox One players enjoying the beta will receive the Trovian Tumbler mount.
The Trove site has a new post that gives an update about the impending launch of the XBox One version. During a recent PlayStation 4 update to make improvements to console stability, a couple of other bugs were found requiring another small patch. The team is working on an XBox One update that will bring the contents of both patches on board simultaneously. Add in that the game has been submitted for launch and we now know that Trove XBox One version is coming soon!

During the special event players will work to defeat the invading Hellbugs for a chance of scoring a legendary dragon mount and a bashful love bug mount.

Trove players can take part in celebratory events as the Trion Worlds team works to bring the game to both PlayStation 4 and XBox One. The event is ongoing and features Pinata invaders, party animals that are ready to lay the smack-down on players but who can drop Celebratory Pinatas. Each of these can contain Pinata Coins and possibly even a pinata mount.
