Clash of Clans introduces Winter update.Supercell Forum

Supercell's strategy mobile game, Clash of Clans gets a new Winter update in tune with the Christmas holidays. The new update will bring loads of new features and goodies into the game.

The new update will provide players with the ability to save multiple layouts in both Village and War Base. Players will be able to "switch, copy and edit" the layouts any time they want so that they can complete it later. The new update will add Level 7 Giants, Level 12 Gold Mines and Elixir Collectors at Town Hall 8.

The update will also boost some of the features already existing in the Clash of Clans.

Supercell also posted on its Facebook page that the game is back online after a maintenance break for the update.

Clash of Clans is a free mobile game that was released on 2 August 2012 for iOS and Android platforms.
