That’s right folks, it’s back! From Thursday the 21st May, Gleambow Racing will be back in operation for two weeks (until the 4th June).
Gleambow Racing is a limited-time event which rewards speed and skill as Citizens chase down special Gleambow Meteorites made up of colourful natural blocks. Some of these will be in shades never before seen in the Known Worlds! You’ll need a special Gleambow Totem to destroy these Blocks - craftable in a Workbench. It’s a great chance to gather completely unique rewards with which to decorate your Build.
Prep for your Gleambow adventures with 3 brand new consumables, each bestowing a different Buff with exciting results
Once you’re done chasing Gleambows, kick back in your Beacon and Craft two new decorative props, just for this event. Don’t forget to head over to the Exchange, where you can pick up a Gleambow wearable or two. We’ll be revealing all the new goodies next week on our social media feeds and the forum, so look out for those!
Gleambow Racing - How to Play
For those of you who weren’t around the last time, let’s run through how Gleambow works.
On Rugged and Inhospitable Lush worlds, all Meteorites are replaced by Gleambow Meteorites. A Gleambow is a unique type of meteorite made from natural Blocks in a variety of colours. They can be identified by their spectacular multicoloured trails. If you’re lucky, you may even find a pure Gleam or Glass Gleambow. Fancy!
Once a Gleambow touches down, you’ll only have a short time before its Blocks adopt the natural colours of the World. Sprint, Grapple, Warp, slide, leap, swim and Buff your way across the landscape before it’s too late.
You’ll need specialised Tools to break your way through those super-tough Gleambow Blocks. A Gleambow Totem will do the trick, so make sure to get hold of one (or more). While you’re at it, keep an eye out for some strangely colourful Cuttletrunks, aptly known as Gleamtrunks, who’ll try to make life difficult. Don’t ignore them! You might find their pickings useful for your next race and more.
