Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
One thing is for sure with this Around the World update…EA is going to keep the Addicts staff BUSY with posts! Loads of content coming and going nearly every single day…so please be patient as we try to parse through what’s hitting each day and have the time to write up posts about what’s changed/what’s been added.
Early this morning new content hit our stores (some was related to the Around the World Event) to celebrate Superbowl Sunday (which is this Sunday on FOX). So let’s breakdown all the items, new and old, to celebrate Football!
And yes for those wondering…this does mean EA has “events” inside this event planned. You can expect to see Valentine’s Day items in a few days as well. So brace yourself for the craziness!
So when you first log into Springfield today (aside from the regular Around the World Stuff), you should have noticed some dialogue popup with Mayor Quimby:
Quimby: We need to goose our tourism industry. We’re being eaten alive by Branson, MI (Note from Alissa, I think it’s supposed to be MO (for Missouri). MI is the appreviation for Michigan) and Punxsutawney, PA (Note from Alissa, Fitting since today is Groundhog Day..and yes, Phil saw his shaddow). Even the Santa’s Village in Shelbyville is beating us, and they’ve been closed since Christmas.
Rich Texan: I have the answer. We build a football stadium and host a bowl game.
Quimby: Who’s going to come to our football game when the big one is happening?
Rich Texan: Everyone who just needs a cheap excuse to get drunk outdoors.
Quimby: We are going to be rich!
Get Cleatus and Place the Football Field
Cleatus is the FOX Football mascot…
He is a free character, and does come with a few tasks.
Once you’ve grabbed Cleatus from the store (he’ll be listed as Free), you’ll also get a Football Field to place immediately. Placing the field is what will also unlock Cleatus. So don’t store it.
Cleatus will come with a questline, here’s a quick look at it now:
