Since its launch in 2012, Clash of Clans has seen continuous updates introducing new elements like buildings, units, and improvements for players. In recent times there have been hints and teasers suggesting the arrival of Town Hall 16, building excitement and anticipation among players for what Supercell might unveil in the December update. Recently, the developers released a video on social media officially introducing the new Town Hall.

For Clash of Clans, major updates usually revolve around the addition of a new Town Hall level. This building holds immense significance, unlocking new structures and enhancing overall gameplay. In a surprising move, Supercell revealed details about the new Clash of Clans TH16 upgrade, including its upgrade costs, balance changes, and the release window. So, here's a comprehensive breakdown.

Clash of Clans TH16 Release Date

December will see the release of the Clash of Clans TH16 update. The developers officially verified this with a tweet that included a brief preview of the new Town Hall's design.

This implies that, at most, the latest Town Hall update will be available in the following three weeks!

The Clash of Clans TH16 trailer only showed the appearance of the new Town Hall and what the maximum base would look like following the game's December update, which disappointed users who had been hoping for a little more information.

However, well-known Clash of Clans content producer Judo Sloth talked a lot about the previews of the upcoming version. Additionally, one of Supercell's developers revealed a ton of fascinating information about the new Clash of Clans TH16 in a post on the /r/ClashofClans subreddit. This information included the various upgrade costs, giga inferno, and upgrade levels that would be accessible with this update.

Clash of Clans TH16 Upgrade Cost & Details

Town Hall 16 exhibits a nature-themed design with a tree-inspired aesthetic. The Giga Inferno at TH16 emanates a solar blast-like beam, continuing the nature theme throughout the update cycle. Upgrading to TH16 involves the following details:

  • Upgrade Cost: 20M Gold
  • Upgrade Time: 14 days
  • Gold, Elixir, and Dark Elixir Capacity: 2M Gold, 2M Elixir, 20K DE
  • Hit Points: 10K

Upon reaching TH16, your Giga Inferno weapon is limited to just one level! Because it will continue to try to burn attacking units, the Giga Inferno is still a formidable rival. A Poison effect is also still active even after the Town Hall is demolished!

Apart from Giga Inferno, the TH16 update includes enhancements for various buildings, defenses, units, and spells. Notable upgrades encompass improvements to defenses like Air Defense, X-Bow, Wizard Tower, Mortar, and Bomb Tower. Buildings like Laboratories, Barracks, Pet House, and resource storage also see upgrades. Additionally, unit upgrades for heroes like Barbarian King, Archer Queen, Grand Warden, and Royal Champion, along with troop and spell upgrades, are part of the TH16 update.
