Clash Royale Season 38 Clash From The Past

August 2022 marks the 10-year anniversary of Clash of Clans and a decade-long of Clash history. To celebrate this rare occasion in video game history, Clash Royale will be themed accordingly.

The birthday celebration provides archival footage of what Clash was like in different time periods. As a highlight, the August season of Clash Royale will be launched in the style of arcade video games in the 80s — with all of its 8-bit glory!

Season 38 begins on Monday, August 1st, 2022. Balance Changes will be applied after a scheduled maintenance break on either Monday or Tuesday.

The August season arena will be the Pixel Arena — it’s a completely new arena made with pixel art!

In fact, the arena is so nice that I think that it would be great to look at it from a bird’s eye view, so here it is:

Clash Royale Season 38 Clash From The Past

When arcade games were launched back in the 70s and 80s, developers have to work with very limited hardware. Colors used to be in 4-bit, with 8-bit (256 colors) already a luxury. The Pixel Arena uses the visual design lingo from the yesteryears and recreate the entire arena in the low-res glory, allowing old timers to appreciate this nostalgia.

Tower Skins

Two tower skins are available this season — one using the same visual pixel lingo as the arena, and the other in the form of an arcade machine.

Pixel Tower Skin (Pass Royale)

The lowest-resolution towers ever done in the pixel art style!

The Pixel Tower Skin will be available to Pass Royale owners for the August season, collectible at Tier 10.

Barbarians have temporarily taken over! Place the launcher, and watch barbarians blast into the enemy’s side, and attack! Win the Barbarian Frenzy emote at 10 wins.

Barbarian Launcher is a 5-elixir common card that’s a bit like a mortar except that it shoots Barbarians! Here’s a gameplay video:
