In a surprising twist, Clash of Clans, the popular mobile strategy game, has introduced Manchester City football sensation Erling Haaland as a new character. Haaland takes on the role of the Barbarian King, marking the first time a real person has been featured as a character in the game.

Developer Supercell made the announcement, revealing that players can now recruit Haaland or raid his village starting Wednesday. The addition of Haaland has stirred excitement among fans, with the football star himself expressing his delight at being part of Clash of Clans. He described the opportunity as “really cool” and shared a trailer on social media, announcing his role as the Barbarian King.

Clash of Clans, known for its fantasy world of building villages and launching raids for power, has amassed over two billion downloads since its launch. Stuart McGaw, the game’s general manager, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership with Haaland, calling it a dream scenario.

For Haaland, this collaboration marks another milestone in his career, following his previous feature on the cover of EA FC 24 (formerly Fifa). The footballer revealed his long-time fandom for Clash of Clans, describing the partnership as “epic.”

This isn’t the first time video games have collaborated with celebrities, with recent tie-ins including Fortnite featuring Lady Gaga and Billie Eilish, and Call of Duty teaming up with Nicki Minaj. Haaland’s inclusion in Clash of Clans adds another layer of excitement to the gaming world, bridging the gap between sports and fantasy realms in an unprecedented manner.
