Mobile developer Imangi Studios has announced a large new content update for its popular endless runner Temple Run 2 (our review), bringing both traditional updates and holiday content to the experience.
After updating, players will find water slides in their path while running, in addition to the mines, forests, zip lines and other areas already in the game. Players can control their movement while sliding down the rapids, and must avoid obstacles including water wheels and fallen trees. Coins appear in these slides, challenging players to move to the correct areas to collect them all.
In addition, Santa Claus has been added to the game as a limited time character. He’s available to purchase with premium currency, but additional Christmas content is available for free. Players can collect holiday artifacts as they run, like presents and candy canes, and can unlock matching Santa hats for their characters in the process.
In addition, new masks have been added to the game’s artifact system, giving players more individual items to collect throughout their runs. Finally, new objectives have been added to the game’s quest system.
