Following last night’s end to the traditional Club Penguin experience, today Disney is launching the new Club Penguin experience, Club Penguin Island, for mobile devices. The new app features an updated, modern take on Club Penguin, which had been a desktop experience for the past 11 years. According to Disney, Club Penguin Island brings together many of the best elements from the legacy Club Penguin product with new design and features.
“Club Penguin has been a favorite online destination for millions of kids for more than a decade, and Club Penguin Island was designed for the next generation of players who have grown up on mobile devices,” said Kyle Laughlin, SVP, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media, Apps and Games. “The new experience offers players the fun and social elements we know kids love, while maintaining the safety features parents have come to trust.”
Club Penguin Island is a subscription-based app where players can join a thriving community, embark on island quests, earn special rewards, and take on daily challenges to level up their penguins.
In addition, Club Penguin Island maintains Club Penguin and Disney’s strong commitment to providing a secure environment for kids, with a new safety moderation system that includes a chat filter. The updated chat function features unique emojis and 3D animations, and personal expression is easier than ever with a fashion-forward penguin customization system. Players will also have access to familiar reporting tools, which lets them self-moderate the community.
Club Penguin Island is available now for free download, with an option to purchase a $4.99 monthly recurring membership subscription, starting today on the Apple App Store and Google Play. Users can try Club Penguin Island with a seven-day free trial. Look for a full review on LaughingPlace.com soon.
