Clash of Clans, one of the most popular mobile games in the world, turns 10. Over the past decade, the Supercell franchise has expanded to include games such as Clash Royale, Clash Quest, Clash Mini, and Clash Heroes. In that time, the entire Clash series has achieved over 3 billion installs.
“We could only have dreamed of a community as passionate, loyal and vibrant as the Clash community has become,” Clash of Clans Community Manager Darian Vorlick said in a statement to GamesBeat. “Our goal has always been to make games loved by many, played for years and remembered forever, so we want to thank all our players who made this possible with this epic celebration and tons of rewards.”
In honor of a decade of life, Supercell hosts a number of in-game events and offers unique rewards. Kicking off the festivities is the 10-day Clash Boss campaign. The anniversary campaign will feature the units and strategies that dominated each specific year of the game.
There will also be an event with a time-traveling barbarian. In the story, the unit travels back to the 1980s to observe forty fictional years of Clash history. A fresh new minigame gives players access to a documentary about those 40 years, as well as partnerships with several real-life brands.
Those brands include Supercell which partners with both General Mills and Topps. Hungry gamers can head to Walmart’s website to order General Mills’ limited edition ’90s Barb’s Choco Boom Booms. Topps, meanwhile, is selling an 80s-themed Clash of Clans brand Garbage can Kids maps on his site.
There is certainly a lot to do during the 10-day event, and apparently more reveals will come as it goes on.
