Candy Crush Saga Paired with Windows 10 at Launch

Posted by | News | 2 Comments

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you’ve probably heard of Candy Crush Saga. And now it’s coming to Windows 10.

Candy Crush Saga is developed by King. It was originally released on Facebook and mobile devices. It’s a free-to-play game with the option to spend money on more turns or power-ups. The game follows the basic match-3 gameplay that was made popular by Bejeweled nearly 15 years ago. However, in Candy Crush Saga, you need to match three (or more) candies together in order to obtain specific goals or solve puzzles.

According to an announcement on Xbox Wire, “all Windows 10 owners will be able to experience the hit game that’s swept the mobile world like wildfire.” The announcement mentions the game will come pre-installed on copies of Windows 10 for a limited time. The Windows 10 version of the game will also have cross-play options between iOS and Android devices.

In addition, the announcement said more games from King will be coming to Windows 10 as well. No specific games were mentioned, but some of King’s other titles include Candy Crush Soda, Bubble Witch Saga, and Farm Heroes Saga.

Windows 10 was announced earlier this year. It will include a variety of features geared toward gaming. One of these is the ability to stream games between multiple Windows devices. This gives you the option of starting a game on one platform and then moving that game to other platforms to fit your current needs. Microsoft hasn’t announced a specific release date for Windows 10, but the full version is expected sometime this year.
