Some huge news has been released today regarding a PC & Mac version of Club Penguin Island which has been confirmed to be coming next month, and there will also be an open beta for everyone to help discover bugs!
This is some huge news. Some other details released are that it will be a downloadable app (not a browser game) and that both mobile and desktop players will be able to play together! Also, your accounts will be linked so it does not matter which device you use!
From the image above, we can get a small feel as to how the desktop version will be like! We will be able to use our mouse or keys to move our penguin! However, not much else is known about desktop so far. We did get this picture though and it looks like the Desktop “Welcome Screen”.
Desktop is a huge addition to the game! Whilst my computer is unlikely to support it and I will still be playing on mobile, it means that there will be hopefully a lot more players to play with! That’s not all coming in the 1.8 update though.
The team have promised that the Winter Holiday Party will be even better than the Halloween Party! Also, there will be some new Frozen-related items in the Disney Shop. It also seems that “Island Live” will be a new revamp of the current CPI Phone.
There is, however, one huge thing I’d like to mention that isn’t specifically related to the 1.8 update and that is this concept wall here!
There’s a ton of different drawings, including a new shirt on the right and a huge sketch too! On the left, it seems that there are some designs for some epic furniture and for buildings! In fact, one of them even looks like a puffle, and I’ve got a whole post on the Puffle Wilds which you can read here.
There’s also a mysterious sketch of a pylon and what looks to be a new area! The Coffee Shop chair looks to be some new furniture, as well as there being some igloo location sketches!
The team mentioned a newsletter at the end of the video, but this isn’t available to all countries unfortunately. I’ve signed up for it and if I do receive any newsletters, I’ll be sure to post it here though! In the meantime, I’m really hyped for the 1.8 update next month!
Thank you very much for reading, waddle on!
