Trion Worlds, has revealed the valentine’s day events for both Trove and Defiance. The event named Hellbugs in love crosses Defiance, with the voxel-based MMORPG (Trove). The event will run for two weeks; it begins at 8:00 AM PST (3:00 PM GMT) on Tuesday, February 9th, and runs until 7:00 PM PST (2:00 PM) on Tuesday, February 23rd. During the event, players in both games can complete activities in one game to unlock special rewards in the other.
During the event Defiance, Hellbugs will be all throughout Trove, and you can receive special awards in both games. Players in Trove can unlock two new Hellbug mounts for use in the game, and players in Defiance can unlock the Ground Pounder 3.
In Trove to get the mount, you will need to slay monster throughout the world and collect Skitter Heart Boxes. The boxes have a chance to give you said mount from opening them. If you want to earn the Red Hellbug mount in Trove you will need to log into Defiance and kill 50 Monarch Hellbugs from the Colony Courtship Arkfalls. Doing so will unlock the mount in Trove.
If you are a Defiance player and want to unlock the Ground Pounder 3 then you need to log into Trove and reach Battle Rank 5 in PvP.
This is a very interesting event as it cross promotes both of Trion’s Games and it forces players to work with one another if they want to get the rewarded in their respective game. It looks like this is an ideal event for bringing the communities together and to squash some bugs in the process.
