A holiday-themed update is also on its way, which will bring a big new Christmas event (and various goodies, naturally) to the island. The update will also add group chat to the game, but that’s not particularly Christmas-y.

You can download Castaway Paradise form the App Store for free, and take advantage of the VIP subscription sale right now. The holiday update will being “in December.”
