Hey Howdy Hey Alien Squishing Tappers!
Well….unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that Halloween has arrived in Springfield! A dark haze has over taken the streets of Springfield and Aliens are on the attack! By now we’re all busy squishing and stopping those aliens dead in their tracks….and earning as many probes as we can!
With this event EA is trying something new (for them) and releasing items/prizes in phases. Two prizes each phase, three phases, for a total of 6 prizes all together. For the first phase, which lasts 12 days and ends 10/20, you can win 2 prizes by collecting Probes. The first prize awarded at 3,250 Probes is the Mutant Peacock.
Let’s take a closed look at this showoff peacock, and just what happens when it enters your town…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 3,250 Probes the Mutant Peacock will automatically be awarded to you and you’ll see this popup:
Much like Friendship Prizes, if you’re visiting a neighbor when you hit the 3,250 Probe mark this message will still popup and your Peacock will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
The Mutant Peacock will be placed in your inventory, so you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve him. (remember to check your entire inventory, characters tend to be at the end) Just tap on the “use” icon to place it in your Springfield:
Once in Springfield some minor dialogue with Lisa will popup (it won’t trigger until Lisa is free…so in between Trick Or Treating) with a simple task (don’t worry Lisa is NOT needed for the task)….
So here’s the deal with the Peacock:
-None Playable Character (NPC). Will just roam around Springfield.
-If you don’t unlock him in the probe box you’ll have a chance to craft after the timer runs out.
-Animated. When tapped he’ll display his Mutant tail
-Part of the THOH XXV Character Set
-Plays sound when tapped (hissing/screeching sound)
-When walking around your town he’ll look like just another peacock…no tail displayed.
So that about covers all the details on this Freakish Peacock!
