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:
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.
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.

Three cards will be boosted for the entire season — all of them related to Barbarians.
Sixteen brand new banner items will be available this season. Some will be basic banners featuring basic cards, and some will be specifically about this season — e.g. the Barbarians and pixel theme.
Challenges and Global Tournaments
There are lots of challenges this season — it’s another great season to get the pass for the unlimited retries!!! 🤯
August 1-5 - Barbarian Launcher Challenge
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:
August 6-10 - CRL 20-win Challenge
Beat the challenge to qualify for a chance to play in the Clash Royale World Finals! This is Phase 1 of the CRL Summer Qualifiers — see our blog post for details about the entire event.

As with previous years, getting 17 wins or more in the CRL 20-win Challenge will earn you a special badge. But that’s not all — unique to this year, there are two more special badges for CRL:
