Extended In-App Language Features Are Here!

Hello! Ahoj! Hej! Szia! Hallo! Hei! Munzee is an international game complete with an incredible variety of players from all over the world. One aspect of the newest version of the app that we have been prioritizing is the extended language feature, and today we are happy to announce the inclusion of six additional languages in the Munzee app! 

As of the publication of this blog, we are thrilled to announce the addition of the following language options:

  • Czech
  • Danish
  • Hungarian
  • German
  • Dutch
  • Finnish

In addition to our latest language options, we also have a number of other languages being worked on as well. We hope to release these languages as soon as possible!

Ready to change your language? This very simple process can be done through the Munzee app! Since the update is over-the-air, as long as you have the latest version of the Munzee app, then the language options should automatically appear without needing to download any updates. You will need to force close the app to see the OTA update be installed.

Once you’ve logged into the app, go to your Settings option from the dropdown menu. In Settings you will see the option for languages, where you will be able to select from the seven current languages offered. Be sure to confirm your language switch by pressing “Reload” to apply the change. If you’re more of a visual learner, we put together this Help Guide article to walk you through the process!

Currently we are seeking player translation assistance for the following languages:

  • Lithuanian
  • Afrikaans
  • Portuguese
  • Malay
  • Russian
  • Italian
  • Spanish
  • Swedish
  • French
  • Polish

If you would like to help us translate any of these language options, please email tamara@freezetag.com with the title “Translation Help.” Don’t see your language on the list, send us an email if you’re willing to start the translation project. A huge thank you to all the players who volunteered their time to help us translate the current language options so far!

We hope these language updates will show our international fanbase some love! We appreciate each and every player who helps make Munzee great!

Premium Munzee Membership Changes (New Rewards!)

Have you been enjoying Munzee with the many added benefits of your Munzee Premium Membership? Purchasing a Premium Membership provides players with many advantages from advanced filters to multi-user login, we’re happy to announce an updated set of included items going live on September 13 at 00:01 MHQ time!

Starting on Friday, players will have different game pieces to deploy for purchasing a Premium Membership from the Freeze Tag Online Store. These updated items will be available as of 00:01 MHQ time on September 13, so be sure to time your purchase for after this date if you’d like to receive them! Premium Members will now be awarded 1 Premium Munzee, 1 Blast Cap, 2 Virtuals with 2 Virtual Color credits, 1 Flat Rob, and 1 Butterfly Evolution credit at the time of purchase! These changes will not be retroactive.

In addition, ALL Premium Members will now receive an additional 100 PinPoints per month on the 15th of each month. This bonus goes out to all Premium Members, regardless of whether or not they purchased their Premium Membership before or after the new update. The PinPoints per month will be replacing the previous Premium Membership bonus of 10 monthly ZeeCred credits. That means that all Premium Members will be receiving 100 PinPoints in place of the previous 10 ZeeCred on the 15th of each month moving forward.

Keep in mind that players can purchase more than one Premium Membership for their account at a time. Each Premium Membership purchase will add 365 days to your Premium account status, so multiple purchases will simply stack over time.

New Global Grub Hits the Map with Spain Addition!

Who’s ready to dig into another bowl of Global Grub? If you’ve given a hearty affirmative answer, then you’re in for a real treat! The Spanish Global Grub will be hitting the map today at 15:00 MHQ time for a physical addition to the tastiest specials on the map!

In honor of today’s date (9/9), 9 Spanish Global Grub specials will be deployed. They will join other physical Global Grub specials such as Pakistan, Korea, Greece, and more! They will bounce to Greenies every 12 hours or when captured.

Points

  • Cap: 200
  • CapOn (Host): 100

Each time you capture a Global Grub special, you will earn a badge containing a dish of food that is unique to the flag pin country. Capturing the Spain Global Grub will earn you the following delicious badge:

Paella is a traditional Spanish dish unlike any other! We’re not exaggerating when we say this mouthwatering mixture is unforgettable. Traditional Spanish paella includes jumbo shrimp, broth, chicken thighs, chorizo sausage, prosciutto, mussels, yellow rice, peas, plenty of spices and flavoring, and of course, saffron! There are many different variations and takes on this dish, with ingredients added and substituted at will. In the end, you’re left with a delicious bowl of grains, protein, and veggies coated in a beautiful blend of spices and flavors!

The Global Grub specials will be bouncing around the globe for the remainder of the year before leaving the map on 12/31/2019 at 23:59 MHQ time. You will have until then to try your luck capturing these very rare specials. Don’t forget that our overall Global Grub capture line allows you more opportunities than ever to earn Global Grub badges!

Stay tuned for more Global Grub releases in the future!

Weapons Weekend Means Worldwide Fun for All!

Who’s ready for some excitement?! We’re happy to announce that MHQ Bash Weekend will also kick off Weapons Weekend worldwide! If you find yourself wondering what is Weapons Weekend?!, we’re happy to share that it won’t disappoint. Weapons Weekend means double points on all Clan Weapon activity from Friday 9/27 at 00:01 MHQ time through Sunday 9/29 at 23:59 MHQ time! That means it’s a weekend of fun that all players can partake in, regardless of whether or not you’ll be joining us in North Texas!

Weapons Weekend

This month is all about MedZEEval Times, so be sure to stock up on as many Clan Weapons as you can before the big weekend! You can earn Clan Weapons by competing in Clan Wars, but for those who didn’t join a Clan in time for September Clan Wars, you can pick up a handful of Clan Weapon Munzees in each of our September MunzPaks! PLUS something special will be going on with all Unicorn and Dragon Mythological Munzee Variants during Bash weekend, so be sure to stay tuned! 

We want everybody around the world to showcase their warrior prowess, so expect some more announcements as the month goes on. Although we’ll have a handful of warriors with us in person at MHQ Bash, the rest of the world should prepare for battle, too! And, of course, even though our event packages are no longer for sale, you can RSVP on the event calendar anytime to join in on the fun in person!

And while all of this might be getting you excited, we do have one final bit of news to share…

Clan Wars Update!

The development team has been hard at work on a brand new update to the Munzee app that will take the Clan Wars experience to a whole new level! While we’re not revealing all of the fun details just yet, we will begin beta testing very soon. So if you’re part of the beta testing group, stay tuned for more info!

Stay tuned for Clan Wars updates!

The fun is just getting started!

Zodiac Updates and NEW Munzee Credits!

Ready for some fun updates?! Today we’re happy to announce Western Zodiac point updates, as well as brand new Chinese Zodiac and Mystery Munzee credits!

Point Updates

As Clan Wars Battle #78 commenced on September 3 at 00:01 MHQ time, the point values for Western Zodiac Munzees all made a permanent change. Like the Chinese Zodiac Munzees, the Western Zodiacs are now all worth 20 points for Deploy, Capture, and CapOn. Their permanent point change is now as follows:

  • Capture: 20
  • Deploy: 20
  • CapOn: 20

Keep in mind that these values will double based on the Zodiac’s specified monthly timeframe. For example, it’s currently Virgo season (August 23- September 22), so all Virgo Western Zodiac Munzee’s will now be worth 40 points during this timeframe. For players focused on earning Zodiac points for Clan Wars, the remainder of the month will see double points action on Libra (September 23- October 22).

New Credits

In addition to the Western Zodiac point updates, the Chinese Zodiac and Mystery Munzees will now be available as credits for the first time! Since there are multiple “active” Chinese Zodiacs at any time, the credit will randomly convert to one of the active types when it is used. Remember that the Chinese Zodiac Munzees are worth double points based on the Zodiac’s specified day of the week. If you need help converting a munzee using credits, be sure to check out our Help Guide article!

For the time being, these credits have been launched in the PinPoints store. Yesterday we gave players a heads up that PinPoints store items would be shifting, so you can now find these brand new credits available for PinPoints purchase! For a full selection of the current PinPoints store items, you can check out the PinPoints catalogue. Keep in mind that these products change on a rotating basis, so if you see something you like, don’t hesitate to use your points!

Whether or not you engage in Clan Wars, we hope these updates will add more fun to the game!

Munzee on!
