Clash of Clans isn’t the only popular game from the developers at Supercell getting updated, as today the company unleashed a huge winter update for Hay Day. The game is a popular free farming title available on iOS, Android, Facebook and more, and today’s update introduces the Champions league, new leaderboards and much more. Read on for everything Hay Day players need to know.
Back in September Hay Day received a large but optional update, with lots of new changes. And now today many of those are mandatory, as a huge update is rolling out this morning for all players, on all platforms, around the globe.
This morning the popular freemium farming game was offline, and many players confirmed multiple issues with misplaced animals, trophies showing up wrong, and other issues, but most of those have been resolved. The game is now back online ready for farmers to enjoy all the major changes that arrived just in time for the winter season.
In September a fall theme arrived, new pets, Derby improvements and more, but that’s nothing compared to what was released this morning. This is officially the Hay Day 2015 Winter update, bringing snowfall and more to villages around the globe. That isn’t all either, with the update Supercell has added a slew of “community requested features” that will surely make many long-time players extremely happy.
Hay Day was once one of the most popular games around, and still in 2015 is inside the top 20 highest grossing games on iOS and Android, and with good reason. The developers constantly add more features, additional pets, new village options and more to keep players invested in farming.
Those who’ve abandoned the farm will be happy to know that now is a better time than ever to give Hay Day another try, or revive an old village. The update is available as we speak, and here’s everything that’s new. It’s a big one.
