Clash of Clans is gearing towards a big update this month. Supercell, despite remaining mum, is rumored to introduce new features and troops, among others. And yes, one of these is the means to acquire gems for free (though there seems to be a time limit). Here's what it's all about.
According to Neurogadget, the studio is poised to unleash the so-called free gem trial period. Think of it as some sort of event where players can obtain these valuable resources -- all with no upfront payment or something. The only catch, as it suggests, it'll only last for up to five days or so.
It's worth noting that in the past few months, Clash of Clans has already been rumored to receive a free gem mining functionality. Of course, most fans were skeptical, as it simply doesn't make sense. Why? That's because gems are considered as Supercell's cash cow. But hey, a trial period of sort actually makes a lot more sense. Players will, at least, have the chance to acquire as much as possible, but only on a certain period of time.
The aforementioned gem event is deemed to arrive in the forthcoming December update, though the developers have yet to confirm a specific date. Among the features are the ability to repair shipwrecks. Moreover, the update is believed to give players a whopping 50,000 gold as reward for every ship they're able to repair. This is definitely the company's way of being generous to the community during the Holiday season.
In related Clash of Clans news, there are talks about a possible VR feature in the future. This rooted from a YouTube video where a supposed Virtual Reality experience is featured. It still remains a mystery if it should come alongside the December update. Or perhaps, it's all but rumors. Because after all, adding such capability in smartphone is close to impossible.
