EXCLUSIVE: ‘Clash of Clans’ Update Introduces The Hog Rider!

Supercell has been teasing a “Clash of Clans” update this week that will introduce new Dark Elixir units, the Minion and the Valkyrie. Today, we’re happy to reveal that a third character will also be joining the fight… Behold, the dreaded Hog Rider!

“Having tamed the fierce leaping hog, the Hog Rider punishes those who hide behind their puny walls! Fueled by Dark Elixir, these warriors have never known defeat!”

It looks the Hog Rider will be able to leap over walls, beginning the assault as soon as he enters the battlefield. Like the new Minion and Valkyrie units also being introduced in the update, it seems players who want to add the Hog Rider to their army will have to do so by tapping into their Dark Elixir reserves. Considering how rare this in-game resource has proven to be, players may want to invest in that Dark Elixir Drill, if they haven’t already.

Though we’re still waiting to learn when exactly the update will arrive, there’s no denying it’s shaping up to be a big one. What do you think of the new Minion, Valkyrie and Hog Rider units?
