Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Yesterday, saw a very minor in-game update to our games which launched a little teaser for our next event! According to the files, the next event is tentatively called The Springfield Jobs. We’ll see what actually happens when it hits…
And today, just a little while ago, saw a new episode tie-in to work our way through for Sunday’s new episode of The Simpsons….”Homer is Where the Art Isn’t”. So let’s take a look at both updates and what changes they’ve made to Springfield…
First, here’s one thing that didn’t update…the current rollback glitch many of you are experiencing. That was not corrected with the updates. Hopefully, it’ll be fixed soon, but it’s not as of yet. I encourage you to continue to reach out to EA (even if you get an awful customer service rep who doesn’t know their rear-end from their elbow…try again or request one in the US). You can find more info on this post & in the comments on that post.
Now on with the updates….
Yesterday’s update was a very small update. Complete with some teaser dialogue & 1 free item to place…
The Car Pillar.
Here’s a look at the dialogue it came with…
A Taste of Little Italy
KentBrockman: Today marks the re-opening of Springfield’s “Little Italy”, newly restored after a giant cannoli cheese flood wiped out the previous ethnic enclave. We go now to Arnie Pye, live over the opening. What do you see, Arnie?
Arnie Pye: Little Italy has everything you could want, Kent. Food, music, culture, and the cheap liquor you need to forget the massive failure that is your career.
Kent Brockman: Well, keep a sharp lookout. We have word that “Little Italy” is the new home of the Italian gigolo your wife left you for.
Build the Car Pillar- Free, Instant Build
Arnie Pye: Hold on a second, I just had to dodge what appears to be an expensive exotic car on top of a statue. More when the meds I just took settle in.
Kent Brockman: As always, parking continues to be hard to find in the downtown area. But “Little Italy” isn’t the only little land we’ll soon be covering on Channel 6. What else is coming? Find out soon!
This one ends on March 20th…when we may see the next event launch!
As a reminder, here’s what the App Store had down for a “teaser” with the Bart Royale removal….
My guess is we’ll be seeing something along the lines of the Hilarious heist…what do you think?
Now onto the Episode Tie-In….
As is typical with Episode Tie-Ins, we’re given a couple of premium items and a new freemium item achieved via the questline…
Via the questline you’ll unlock….
And the premium item this time is…
After you build the Auction House (part 1), for 4hrs you’ll then be tasked with a 6hr task for both Homer and 5 Springfielders.
And that’s it for the episode tie-in. A couple of questlines, Premium Character, Free Building…..pretty typical tie-in.
The tie-in ends March 19th (Monday)
I’ll be back later with the full walkthrough for the tie-in.
What are your thoughts on the Italian Job and/or the Episode Tie-in? Excited about what the next event might bring? Thinking about buying the new premium character? Just in the mood for a nap? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
