The newest, biggest feature is the Builder Base. You can get all the details here — but put simply, this is a new base on a new landmass with tons of new buildings that are built with different resources than the structures at your home base. You can head there and get building once your town hall hits level four.

It also includes several new troops, including the boxer giant and bomber. A new versus mode lets you take on other players directly; win three versus matches in one day and you'll get some hot loot. The press release calls this the biggest Clash of Clans update ever, so make sure your app is up to date and get building.
