A big Clash Royale update is coming in April that will remove features and add a boat to the game, and here’s what we know so far. Every few months the developers at Supercell release updates, but rumors suggest some major changes are coming next. From a permanent mute button, Clash Royale Clan Wars, new troops, and they’re even removing the clan chest.
The last major update for Clash Royale came in February, and it mainly delivered balance changes and a new troop. However, it sounds like the developers are going to shake things up here in 2018. In fact, on April 19th Supercell started teasing a boat on Twitter, and added that same boat and an island inside Clash Royale.
If you think the game is getting a little stale, you’re not alone. YouTubers have slowly stopped playing, and updates are slowing down too. That said, this next update might finally shake things up and make Clash Royale exciting and fun again. Here’s everything we know so far, and we’ll update once we learn more.
Clan Chest Is Going Away
First things first, Supercell is getting rid of the clan chest in Clash Royale. The clan chest was a way for entire clans and groups of friends to work towards a chest full of awards, gold, and new cards to progress in the game. It’s a group effort to unlock higher Clan Chest rewards.
For whatever reason, Supercell is taking it out with the April update. Don’t worry though, they promise all of the rewards players received from the Clan Chest aren’t going anywhere. In fact, they’ll reintroduce them back into the game through other features. We’re not sure what those are yet, but we have a pretty good idea.
Clan Wars in Clash Royale
No, you’re not confused and we’re not talking about Clash of Clans. It looks like Supercell is taking a hint out of Clash of Clan’s book, and will soon release Clan Wars for Clash Royale too.
We have no clue how Clan Wars in Clash Royale will work, but they’re coming in the next update. The developers mentioned it back in February, and then again on Twitter. Followed by a huge teaser this week.

Furthermore, there’s a big thread on Twitter full of potential spoilers. Basically, we’re not sure what’s coming in April but it will be a big update once it arrives. We can only assume this boat will take you to an island similar to what’s shown above. At that island we can play in Clan Wars, similar to Clash of Clans, but for Clash Royale. Who knows, maybe this is a massive rework for tournaments, with a bracket-style Clan War. Here’s a video explaining this teaser, along with a few hints at what could be coming.
It’s all a mystery right now, but we’ll know more soon enough. Personally, I think it’s either Clan Wars, or some sort of single-player campaign mode. A single-player mode similar to the Clash of Clans map that players can work through and slowly beat each arena. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
Permanent Mute Button for Emotes
One of the most controversial aspects of Clash Royale is the emojis, or emotes. Players can say thanks or “good game” to other players. However, they can also laugh, cry, and make angry faces back and forth. And while this is a fun way to communicate, some people spam the emotes over and over again. Or continuously tap the crying face when they win a battle. Rumors suggest Supercell is finally getting rid of them.
This turns a fun way to chat with players into what many see as poor sports, bad manners, and just overall bad behavior. It’s something that a large part of the Clash Royale community is completely against. So, after nearly two years, it looks like Supercell will give players the option to permanently mute these emotes.
Other Clash Royale April Update Details
In closing, we wanted to go over a few other potential changes coming to Clash Royale in April. Supercell will make big changes to the game as a whole, including balance changes to keep things fresh and fun. Balance changes are a very important part of updates, and we’ve been waiting nearly two months for another round of tweaks.
We’re also hearing Supercell will fix the Golden Chest glitch, Supercell ID problems, add a new Monkey card of some sort, change some user interface things, and more. Sadly, it doesn’t look like the update will be here until near the end of April. Additionally, rumors believe Supercell will not be making changes to challenges, or the Tournaments in this update either.
Basically, a big April Clash Royale update is coming soon. The developer team already delayed it from March to April, so clearly something important is in the works. Is it the boat and island? Again, we’ll update this post as we learn more.
