Publisher King has announced the launch of the 2,000th level for its hit free-to-play puzzle game Candy Crush Saga, which is available for Windows Phone and Windows 10 on PC and Mobile. The good news is that players who have not yet reached level 1,999 will still be able to play that new milestone.
In a press release, King stated:
This very special 2000th level will not only be available for those who've passed level 1999, but is also accessible to all players above level 10 as an in-game live event. Available on iOS, Google Android, Amazon and Windows devices for seven days from today, fans will get a sweet peek into the future of the game. In this fun-filled 2000th level, players will join Candy Crush characters Tiffi and Yeti as they travel to the Bubblegum Bazaar to meet a fortune teller who will predict the future of the Candy Kingdom. Players will be challenged to collect sweets and will enjoy Colour Bombs galore which spell out '2K' on the game board. Those who complete the level will be rewarded with two Colour Bombs and one of each booster.
King also revealed some interesting trivia about Candy Crush Saga, including the fact that the game has now been played over 1 trillion times since it first launched as a Facebook-based title in 2012. Also players swipe 41,197,500km playing Candy Crush Saga each year on their mobile devices and 18 billion game rounds are played every month.
