Skylanders: Trap Team getting new tower-defense horde mode

A new mode coming to Skylanders: Trap Team, titled “The Kaos Doom Challenge”, will pit players against 100 waves of enemies in a tower-defense style gameplay.

As legions of Kaos’s minions swarm the player’s base, the player must use placeable turrets and their own Skylanders character’s abilities to defeat each wave’s enemies and keep victory out of Kaos’s clutches. Periodic “Mystery boxes of Doom” will also show up at certain wave milestones, containing a particularly tough boss monster which must be taken down. Any available characters or trapped villains the player has unlocked will be usable in The Kaos Doom Challenge.

The Kaos Doom Challenge will be fully playable when Skylanders: Trap Team launches on October 5 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii, Wii U, 3DS, and mobile devices. To see The Kaos Doom Challenge in action, check out the below trailer.
