Studio Aurum Releases New Monster Crown Update, Adds Online Trading

Monster Crown adds trading, random hatches, and more in its first big content update.

Monster Crown entered the wilds of Early Access at the end of July, and now, Studio Aurum has released the game's first big update with changes to breeding and move learning.

The Net Egg adds a random element to the breeding system. Tamers add monster genes to the egg, which then mixes the species and moves around. Should players choose to breed with the Net Egg as one of the parents, they get a complete surprise when their monster hatches.

Tamers can now trade monsters online with other trainers, including random monsters hatched from Net Eggs, making it easier to obtain specific monsters or types to stack a team with.

Finally is the Move Learner. When Monster Crown first launched, monsters could learn six moves total, but couldn't re-learn moves. Move Learner lets tamers pick what moves their monsters know at any given time.

Even though Monster Crown is still in the early days of Early Access, we found a lot to love with this dark take on the monster-catching genre. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Monster Crown news as it develops.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
