Earlier today, King released the latest entry in their hugely successful Candy Crush Series, and it's called Candy Crush Friends Saga.

This new game offers a series first – 3D visuals. Alongside the game's updated look, there are also five new gameplay modes for players to try out. You've got Free the Octopuses, Free the Animals, Spread the Jam, Dunk the Cookies, and Collect the Hearts.

Players also now have the option to dress their characters up in some sweet new outfits, with many being related to seasonal events – starting with Halloween. In an interesting touch, the look and feel of the game world will apparently change alongside these seasonal updates.

For those not in the know, Candy Crush is a free to play series that rose to mass popularity back in 2012. It's a match three puzzler, with a focus on light-hearted fun and colourful visuals.

We reviewed this latest entry earlier today, mostly praising it for bringing the series up to date, even if it's still the same game at heart.

Whether you're a returning vet or a first time player, Candy Crush Friends Saga looks like it has you covered. And so now's the time to head on over to the App Store or Google Play where you can nab it for free.
