New Star Soccer turns 2 and offers in-game rewards

Massively successful mobile footy game, New Star Soccer turns 2 this weekend and the New Star team are celebrating in a big way.

Anyone who logs into the game this weekend will be gifted with undisclosed in-game prizes. Presumably Star Bux and NRG drinks, but who can say?

The game has been an absolute smash worldwide, has been downloaded over 6 million times, reached the number one on the UK App Store in 2012 and won a BAFTA in 2013. To say the New Star team are flying high would be an understatement. On a daily basis, the game attracts over 2 million sessions. It’s pretty addictive.

An update to the game in 2013 changed some of the core gameplay. Instead of trying to deflect a cross in-shot from mid-field, blocking the ball from being passed between opposing players, now you have to dribble the ball through four opposing team players in order to get a chance at goal.

All you need to do to claim your free gift is log into the game from 14th March and be connected to the internet and you’ll be gifted it through your career. If you have multiple careers, you can also sign in through those and get your free gift that way. Not bad, huh?

Creator, Simon Read is still humbled by the support and has a message for fans of the game.

“I am still amazed by the success of the game and I really want to thank the fans for their continued support. Their passion is what keeps me motivated and determined to keep improving New Star Soccer.”

2014 promises to be a big, exciting year for New Star Games and we can’t wait to hear what’s next. If you’ve not tried the game yet, go to the Apple App Store for iOS devices, andthe Google Play Store for Android devices. You’ll probably be addicted, but that’s totally not our fault.
