SkyBox Labs Monthly – March 2017 | The Guns & Gladiators Tournament is Coming!

We’ve got a great update this month: a new TASTEE tournament, Age of Empires II HD updates, and we’re on Instagram!

The TASTEE ROYALE: Guns & Gladiators – Sign Up for our Next Tournament!

We are excited to announce our next tournament, The TASTEE ROYALE: Guns & Gladiators. The tournament will be an asynchronous PvP single-elimination bracket tournament. Signups will be open for the next 3 weeks, and we’ll be announcing the tournament bracket on Monday, April 17th.

The TASTEE ROYALE: Guns & Gladiators: The tournament begins and ends in our newest map, the Backyard Colosseum – a makeshift arena built for both long-range combat and close-quarter skirmishes. The new map will be added to the game in our next update, and will be available as DLC. If you’d like to test it out, the beta-version is available for free to everyone in the TASTEE Elite.
