Q1 Newsletter + TGIF! Game Updates for January 5th 2024

Happy Friday, players and Happy New Year!


We want to start off by saying thank you to the over 220,000 brand new players who have joined since the last few months (and all the players who have supported us since the launch of our games)! We’ve started posting our newsletter here as part of our Kanoplay Blog ~ Think of it like an expansion of our regular TGIF posts and a perfect way to stay in-the-loop. We've introduced a whole bunch of new features in 2023 and we've got lots in store for 2024.

First things first, we want to show our gratitude to all of our players! Here's an Exclusive Item with a Boost of your choice as a small token of our thanks for being a part of the community.

In-Game Updates

Zombie Slayer Raid Boss Banner The Drowned

Many have hoped and prayed that the ocean was the final sanctuary against the undead horde, but how wrong they were. From down in the depths comes a terrifying threat to the fighters of Zombie Slayer, The Drowned Raid Boss! Keep your eyes sharp and your aim steady as you go to battle in this Raid event to claim your rewards. 

Alongside this Raid Boss comes the Winter Raid Games Event! Join a team and go for Gold in this prize filled competition. Any actions (attacks/heals) taken against The Drowned Raid Boss will count towards your team's total actions. As checkpoints are reached you’ll earn bonus rewards with even more prizes to win based on your team’s final placement! 

If you wanted a refresher on how the event works please see our FAQ here - https://kano.helpshift.com/hc/en/7-zombie-slayer/faq/356-raid-games-2-0-updated-jan-2023/ 

Good luck and have fun!
