Release Date Announced for Clash of Clans Follow-Up

The App Store’s Twitter account has spilled the beans on the official release date of Supercell’s first game since Clash of Clans. It’s called Boom Beach, and it’s launching worldwide on Thursday.

The free-to-play game actually soft launched in Canada back in November, so it’s been a long time coming. In Boom Beach, like in Clash of Clans, you build a town and defend it, but this time the game takes place on a tropical archipelago.

Interestingly, iOS 7 is required to play Boom Beach, so you might want to upgrade if you’re looking forward to giving it a try. For more information, check out the game’s forums and watch the trailer below.
