AWESOME AUGUST UPDATE

Hello Hot Lava fans! August is here and we’re bringing the heat for the final days of summer with a scorching new update!

DAILY CHALLENGES

New ‘Daily Challenges’ give you even more reason to jump into Hot Lava on the regular. New rewards are up for grabs - Every. Single. Day. Complete the challenges for some fantastic daily rewards. If you get doubles, don’t fret, we’ve got an exciting new system that addresses that... 

NEW WAYS TO EARN ACCESSORIES

With this update we’ve given our items system a major upgrade - an amazing new feature to ‘recycle’ doubles, or items you don’t want, for tickets you can use to get gear. Instead of just winning items at the completion of level challenges, you can now earn them through this new tickets system. Some super special items will only be available this way! It’s never been easier to get the accessories you want. 

NEW CHALLENGES 

Speaking of items we’ve also added a lot of new challenges to every ‘Curated by Klei’ Map so it’s even easier to pick up some new accessories. Over 99 new challenges to complete, which not only gives you more chances at in-game swag, but also means that Max Player Rank has gone up by a-lot! Jump in to outrank your friends before they beat you to it!

MARVELOUS NEW MAP

As if all that wasn’t enough, we’ve also added a brand new, Klei-curated Community Map ‘Journey’! Travel through 6 different locations from City to Farm, Harbor to Forest, all with their own unique challenges. Explore these all new Levels and pick up some new items along the way. 

As always, stay cool, stay safe and stay off the floor!
