Original article, September 26 at 1:46 p.m. ET: With five years of existence under its belt, it was only a matter of time until Trivia Crack would get a sequel. Developer Etermax did just that today and announced Trivia Crack 2, the sequel to 2013’s popular quiz game.
According to the app listing, Trivia Crack 2 supports over 20 languages and hundreds of thousands of questions that cover subjects like art, science, history, entertainment, sports, and geography. The game also features refreshed visuals with brighter colors and larger UI elements relative to the original Trivia Crack.
To go along with the overhauled visuals are new character-collecting and leveling mechanics, along with the ability to create and join teams, though details are light on how the mechanics work. We also do not know how Trivia Crack 2 tackles monetization, though the game will likely be a free download with in-app purchases.
At its core, Trivia Crack 2 looks to retain the same trivia-based multiplayer gameplay of the original. You spin a wheel that includes the six aforementioned subjects. Once the wheel lands on a subject, you have a certain amount of time to answer the question. You might even land on a “Crown” subject that nets you a character if you answer the question correctly.
If you answer correctly, you go again. If you answer incorrectly, the next player goes. It’s a simple mechanic that proved successful for the original Trivia Crack, seeing how it garnered over 500 million users over five years.
If you want to see how Trivia Crack 2 fares, you can pre-register at the link below. Those who pre-register now will get a Tiny Gold Chest once the game goes live October 25. If the game hits its other pre-registration milestones, players could get additional Gold Chests and an Adept Pack.
