The biggest cosmetic addition in the Summer update is the Battle Banners. These brand-new cosmetics are shown at the start of each Battle and allow you to represent your style within Clash Royale. Additionally, these banners are completely customizable, making it very easy to represent yourself in whichever manner you want.

However, you will have to unlock various design elements to customize your banner with them. You can unlock these elements from the newly introduced Banner Box. The Banner Box is unlockable with the help of Gems or Banner Tokens. Collecting this new form of currency is a fairly simple task and you can do so using these two methods:

  • Special Challenges
  • Mastery Rewards

Apart from Battle Banners, the Summer update has also introduced a bunch of new badges for you to choose from for your banners. Additionally, you should also note that new badges will be released every season to further expand your choices for the perfect banner. Having said that, here’s a list of all the new badges that were released in Clash Royale:

New modes in Clash Royale Summer update

With the release of the Summer update, the Duels game mode is now available even without Clan Wars. You can now play the Duels mode in the following setups:

  • Challenges
  • Friendly Clan Battles
  • Clan Wars

Additionally, a new version of the Duels mode has also been introduced with the new update. This new mode has been named Ban Pick Duels and here are the points that you need to note about it:

  • Players BAN two of their opponent’s decks at the start of the Duel
  • Players PICK one of their remaining decks
  • One Battle is then played to determine the winner

Apart from this, the regular Duels mode is also available in case you are more suitable with that. It is also important to note that you will have to set up your individual Duel Decks for any Duels that you participate in outside Clan Wars.

Duel Decks are made up of four decks, using 32 unique cards. You can’t use the same card in more than one deck. From the Battle Deck tab, you can toggle between Battle Decks and Duels Decks to create or edit your Duel Deck. However, you should remember that Duel Decks and War Decks are different and should be set accordingly.

Volume Sliders

These sliders can be used to set exactly how loud the volume of the “Music” or “SFX” should be.

Simply head on over to “Settings” and tap on “Audio”.

The Trader

The Trader now has his wares available in the Shop!

As well as being in a new location, we’ve also made changes to how the Trader works. In addition to re-rolling which Cards players want to “GIVE” players can now also re-roll the Cards they want to “GET”.

There is now no limit to how many times a player can re-roll or how many times a player can Trade each day (this is now only limited by how many Trade Tokens players have available).

New Mastery Tasks

10 character cards have received the third tier of Mastery Tasks that will allow you to further enhance their performance in the game. Additionally, you will also receive Banner Token for completing these tasks in Clash Royale. Here’s a list of all the cards that received the third tier of Mastery Tasks with the Summer update:

  • Arrows
  • Electro Spirit
  • The Log
  • Wizard
