King Digital Entertainment plc Key Developments

King Digital Entertainment Announces Launch of Farm Heroes Super Saga

King Digital Entertainment announced the launch of Farm Heroes Super Saga, the second installment in the Farm Heroes game franchise. The new sister title from King reintroduces players to the beautiful farm lands, where the quest to maintain peace continues as they switch and match their way through a range of exciting new features, game modes and social mechanics. Now available to download for free from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Facebook, Farm Heroes Super Saga will offer players new dimensions of gameplay in order to beat Rancid the Raccoon and win the Country Show. Players can look forward to an exciting new feature, the 'Super Cropsie', which is made when four 'Cropsies' are matched in a square. When in their 'super' state the 'Cropsies' are worth more points and regardless of the matches made after this, the 'Super Cropsies' never lose their value, allowing players to reach their goal faster. The new game will also launch with more animated 'Cropsies' including a jolly but awkward tomato, an excitable banana, a cute and innocent plum, a sassy pear, as well as the return of the much-loved carrot and water drop. The game also has new characters including Fidget, the hyperactive (and at times forgetful) squirrel, and Darwin, the chatty and helpful goat. Other new elements include a lenticular map, new characters and four challenging new game modes including: Growth, Wind, Nut and Hay. Farm Heroes Super Saga also launches with a brand new social feature that will enable players to compete against their friends by earning more points and climbing the leaderboard. The 'Country Show' is a timed event where players must try to grow their own 'Cropsies'. The more stars gamers earn while playing the game, the more 'growth formula' they have to feed their 'Cropsies'. At the end of every event there will be a Country Show and the bigger the 'Cropsie', the more coins players win to spend on boosters.
