“Draw Something 2” was first revealed in March, when Ryan Seacrest decided to share some early screenshots with his Twitter followers. Now the sequel to Zynga’s breakaway doodle game has officially launched, introducing a slew of new drawing tools and some interesting social features.
While updated drawing tools that introduce new textures, colors and patterns are sure to please longtime Draw Something fans, it’s the social features that really bring change to the game. In “Draw Something 2″ players will have access to a live social feed where they can follow friends and celebrities, and discover new artists. You’ll also be able to like and comment on drawings, and watch instant replays of how they were created.
“Draw Something 2 is a new kind of experience that blurs the line between games and social apps, yet it builds on the magic that made the original one of the most popular mobile game franchises in the world,” said Travis Boatman, senior vice president of mobile at Zynga. “Draw Something 2 gives people a creative way to connect with friends by drawing, sharing and checking out the feed. We couldn’t be more proud of the New York mobile team that crafted the game.”
Other new features in “Draw Something 2″ include free play, where players can doodle to their heart’s content, and player galleries that store your previous drawings to share with friends and the rest of the Draw Something community.
“Draw Something 2″ is available now for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and is coming soon to Google Play for Android devices.
