    Hey hey,

    Today we've released an update to Bed Wars which adds a new time-limited 40v40 Dream mode, replacing the recently introduced Ultimate Dream mode. Don't worry: as we release new dream modes we plan to put previous modes into rotation again in the future! So if you missed a mode you will have a chance to play again.

    Continue reading for all the details on the new 40v40 Dream mode!


    ▶ Map
    Bed Wars Castle features a huge map with two castles and four towers. The red and blue team are separated by a large wall in the center, which can be evaded with the underground tunnel system. There is plenty of space for both empires.

    [​IMG]

    Both teams have one castle and two towers (to the left and right of the castle), and each of these structures hold one bed. You choose your position: rush towards your enemies and destroy their empire, or protect one of your team's beds with your life!


    [​IMG]

    You can easily reach the different structures with the launch pads located at each side of the castle and back of the towers. You can not use your enemy's launch pads.


    [​IMG]

    There are four resource generators per team - two in the castle, and one in each tower. The platforms are big enough for everyone, and if you're running short on any resource, you can use the banker to help you out with purchases, more on that later.

    The Streak NPC, Banker NPC, Item Shop NPC, and Team Upgrades NPC are located at each of the 8 team resource generators.

    [​IMG]

    Your team's empire will be very well decorated with 10 island toppers from the top 10 players of your team.

    ▶ Beds

    [​IMG]

    Each team has three beds - one on top of their castle and one on top of their two towers. The enemy's task is to destroy all three beds. Once all beds have been broken, it's your task to eliminate the remaining players!


    [​IMG]

    In Castle mode, every bed will have it's own name and symbol so you can easily recognize which bed is under attack. The scoreboard and trap announcements will show the bed names and symbols, and the structures holding the beds will have symbols on their walls.

    Beacons indicate which team beds are still alive and ready to be attacked. The beacon will turn off when the nearby bed is destroyed, and the wool will turn gray. You will be able to see the beacons from the center of the map for easy and quick path decisions. If not, try turning up your view-distance!

    ▶ Streak Powers
    The new Streak Powers are meant to be a reward for the most valuable players. Once you have earned enough streak points to use a streak power, you will be notified in chat.

    You can earn streak points through various ways:
    • Killing enemies
    • Collecting Diamonds & Emeralds from resource spawners
    • Sharing Resources with the Banker (Better resources = more points)
    • Destroying an enemy bed
    Most of these will increase progressively.

    If you have collected enough streak points, you will be able to choose from a variety of streak powers:
    • Golden Knight (Tier 1, 30 Streak Points, Time Limit: 5 Minutes)
      You will be given a trusty horse with golden armor. You can spawn the horse by right clicking anywhere with your "Sword of Justice" which will also heal you (1 heart) every time you hit a player. The streak will end when you die, or once the time runs out.
    • Lone Wolf (Tier 1, 30 Streak Points, Time Limit: 5 Minutes)
      A bunch of wolves will accompany you on your way to your enemy's empire. The wolves will attack anyone that attacks you, and they can not be hurt. The streak will end when you die, or once the time runs out.
    • Wither Rider (Tier 2, 60 Streak Points, Time Limit: 3 Minutes)
      You will be mounted on a wither which will breathe fireballs repeatedly. The fireballs will destroy player-placed blocks but not attack players. The streak will end when the wither (10 hit points) dies, or once the time runs out.
    • We're planning to add many more streak powers in the future! You can suggest your ideas in this thread.
    [​IMG]
    Golden Knight Streak Power

    To activate a streak power, interact with a Streak NPC at your team's empire or right-click the compass and click the fireball icon.

    ▶ Banker (Team Resources)
    With this update we're introducing a Castle-only feature: Team Resources! You can store resources in the Banker's inventory by dragging them onto the icons, shift-clicking them into the inventory, or by dropping them on the Banker. You will receive streak points for sharing resources.

    If you're running short on any resource while purchasing an item from the Item Shop or Team Upgrades, the Banker will help you out with stored resouces.

    [​IMG]

    When any of the resource generators have hit their maximum amount of items to drop at a time, your Banker will collect some of the resources for your team's resource bank.

    ▶ Traps
    Both teams receive 3 free Alarm Traps at the start of the game. Traps in Castle mode last for 5 uses. They will also announce which one of your beds is being attacked!

    ▶ New Weekly Quest: Sleep Tight
    We have also added a new weekly quest for dream mode players.

    [​IMG]

    We hope you enjoy the new 40v40 Dream mode! As always, report all bugs here so we can fix them soon.

    Development Progress Summary

    Last week we gave you an insight into Guild Update and Cops & Crims which you can READ HERE Thank you for the great response to the first summary I thought I would share some more highlights this week (this doesn't include everything we are working on):

    Why another Skywars/Bedwars update?: When we move to a new project we often set goals of what we would like to achieve with the update in SW/BW one of these was to try micro updating which allows us to release more regular content to rather than a big single update.

    We currently only have 1/2 developers assigned to SW/BW as their primary focus so most of the team are actually working on other content updates so don't worry the Guild Update or other updates are not being slowed down because of these updates. This style of updating doesn't work on every update such as guild update due to it's integration across the network although you may see this style of updating with other mini games in the future.

    Mega Walls: Following the Reclaim Update, we've been listening to your feedback and making its of appropriate balance changes and bug fixes. This week we released a balance patch based on this community feedback which you can see HERE

    Prototype:
    Throughout June we have content updates for the Bridge, Pit and KOTH so players who are wondering what is next for prototype there will be news on these this month. We are currently working on plans for both Zombies and Hide n Seek to become permanent features in arcade with more news to come out about this.

    Although this is a small insight to our current development plans, we are excited to share more progress updates moving forward.
