In addition to the 3 puzzles presently available, and their various difficulty settings, 4 new landmarks will be presented monthly, so that the players can choose which one will be adapted into an augmented reality puzzle in the next update. The first four options, available at launch, are the Brandenburg Gate, Forbidden City, Palace of Westminster and Himeji Castle.
