Skylanders: Trap Team

Activision has announced a new Skylanders Trap Team gameplay mode dedicated to Emperor Kaos. This is known as “Kaos Doom Challenge”.

In Kaos Doom Challenge, players can create defensive towers and take on waves of foes using any of their Skylanders in their collection – not to mention Trapped Villains as well. The mode also includes the “Mystery Box of Doom”, which will bring out even bigger villains.

Activision is debuting a new element of Skylanders Trap Team at Gamescom 2014 this week. Those attending the expo can go hands-on with a new line of cute, pocket-sized Skylanders characters called Skylanders Minis.

Sixteen of these Skylanders are joining the fight and will be playable in Trap Team. While they’re diminutive in stature, they’re mighty in battle and will come with upgrades and abilities, just like any other Skylanders.

Five of the new Minis are playable at Gamescom: Spry, Mini Jini, Drobit, Trigger Snappy and Hijinx.
