Club Penguin Rewritten: Public HTML5 Beta Test Launched (#CPR2020)
For a while now, the Club Penguin Rewritten team have been slowly revealing details about the upcoming HTML5 public beta test. This has now been officially released in a blog post, but I just wanted to give you a run down of what’s going on!
In case you’re unaware, the team are currently migrating the game to a more modern technology. There’s two primary reasons for this:
- In December, Flash (the current technology used) will begin to be retired by browsers. It’s also significantly outdated as it is.
- HTML5 (the more modern technology) will provide the team with more options. This includes mobile support, but they have also confirmed that features such as igloos improvements will be made for the more modern technology. Read more.
Without further ado, here’s how you can test it! You can sign in at the following link on any device, including mobile: https://play.cprewritten.net/2020/
This is really just a test, so a lot of things such as sitting and emotes don’t work yet, and it may feel a bit odd. You can also currently access the following rooms:
- Outdoor: Town, Dock, Snow Forts, Plaza
- Indoor: Coffee Shop, Dance Club, Gift Shop
By testing, you’ll receive an exclusive background! It’ll be added to your inventory automatically as long as you’re not logged in on both the HTML5 version and the Flash version at the same time.
Of course, a lot is being updated and there’s still a while to go! However, it’s pretty amazing to see the rapid progress which the team has made, and the game does play relatively well. It’s also really cool to be able to play on mobile devices!
Above are some more links with more information regarding the HTML5 change, in case you’re interested. I will keep you updated with more information as it’s released, but it’s amazing to be able to finally test it out!
Thank you very much for reading, be sure to check back for more of the latest Club Penguin Rewritten news and guides!
Is everything on our old cpr account going to transfer over to the HTML5 version of the game. Like stamps, clothing items and igloo items?
My understanding is that yes, it will be.
So do we get the background just by clicking that link and playing the game? Looks very smooth btw!
Correct, it’ll be automatically added to your inventory! 🙂
Long time since I’ve seen your name around – hi! 🙂
My guess is that since the game works on mobile once the get it finished they will make some sort of app which will take you to the website but that is just me
It’s possible, but the chance of an app for a private server being approved on either the App Store or the Google Play Store seems very unlikely, and it probably would be pretty pointless anyway.
its a little laggy and friend list amnd map and news an igloo dont work
Those are all known issues! 🙂
Is Rockhopper still coming. Its been a while since his last visit
Yeah, it surprises me too. He probably will, but I’m not entirely sure.
The last visit was July 13. Has been 5 days, thats unusual.
Yep…not sure what’s up with that, in all honesty.
Looks like he’s begun visiting again! He’s on now on Marshmallow. https://clubpenguinmountains.com/mascot-trackers/medium/rockhopper-tracker/
And i missed it ;-;
Aw, good luck with the next one!

I got the free background by testing, but honestly I don’t think we will get the same club penguin feel again. It looked so different in graphics, interface and the features were very different. So that’s why I don’t want flash to end.
My name is rockhopeer0 btw, I thought the brackets don’t come lol
I understand why you feel that way, but I suspect there’s a lot of improvements to come, and definitely so in regards to features! Flash being retired is unfortunately out of Club Penguin Rewritten’s control.
This question has nothing to fo eith this post but I missed out on Rockhopper again. Was this last visit today?
The last visit was yesterday on Marshmallow!
Aww! 😭😭😭💔💔💔 well thanks again for replying! 🤗.
Don’t worry, it’s definitely possible that there could be more! And no problem, I try to respond to all comments and emails. 🙂
are patios coming back?
Igloo things will be added eventually to HTML5, yep.
I hope this dosent sound rude but in KERA1995 reply she said a innaprpite word and im pretty sure that little kids read this blog so next time will you please filter those words out?
I wasn’t aware that others deemed that word to be inappropriate, but I’ve removed it now. Thank you for letting me know, and just to re-assure you, I moderate all comments before they’re published so nothing (in this case, overtly) inappropriate will ever be displayed.
I am sorry but what was the inappropriate word then? I only asked if RH had his last visit and that I missed out on him? And English is not my first language so I am sorry. I know very well not to use bad language..
It’s not a problem at all, I didn’t think too much of it either and I think it’d be allowed on CPR, but perhaps others are sensitive to it too.
my club penguin wont load every time I open it how do I make it work?
Hi! Is there any error that occurs when you try loading it – what usually happens? Clearing cache is often a good first step: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/32050
