Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Some exciting news…
We’ve received the content package for the next event from EA! Which means…we can share some details in advance with you guys! Remember, we’re all under NDA, so please bear with us as we can’t share EVERYTHING we know until EA tells us we can (which is usually how we operate anyway). But we have the green light to release some basic info about the next event.
So no more guessing, we now know WHEN the next event will start and WHAT the next event will cover! Pretty exciting stuff huh?
So I know there are a bunch of you who like to remain spoiler free (and this, to me, will not violate our spoiler-free policy as this is information provided to us directly from EA. They’re giving us the go-ahead to share…) I’ll post the WHAT below the fold. However, I will say the next event will start (as we predicted earlier this week) on Wednesday, August 1st.
So be prepared on Wednesday, August 1st for the event launch
Now on with the spoilers…
WARNING SPOILERS BELOW
While we can’t give away too much of the what with this event, we can tell you the next event will be focused around (as many of you guessed)…..
THE SPRINGFIELD ZOO!
With a few Simpsons twists and turns along the way!
We can also tell you that it will have an auto start prompt, so no worries about keeping anyone free to get the event going. HOWEVER, you will need THREE members of The Simpson Family for the first task. So make sure you keep those Simpsons free on Wednesday!
Here’s a little more…
-Like all events, this one will be broken into 3 Acts, with each Act running 2 weeks. So this will be a 6-week total event, running until Sept 12th.
-Loads of animals and zoo decorations will be coming to Springfield. As well as several new characters (including some from the Bracket battles).
-Premium content will be plenty…old and new. There will be Mystery Boxes to tempt you, as well as returning content to buy directly with donuts.
-Another spend cash for donuts item will appear..although I don’t think you’ll be happy with the price point.
-Gil will likely make an appearance (he always does). This time around I have a feeling he’ll be bringing a popularly requested character. So farm/buy those donuts you’ll need a lot to get that character (less than 400 but more than 200).
-There will be land tokens.
-Oh and there’s nothing you need to do to really prep for this one…i.e. you don’t need to buy all available land like the last event.
Overall it will be a pretty standard 6-week event, especially one for the end of the summer. A few element changes will be added, but it’s still 3 Acts and 6 weeks. If you like the Zoo and animals, this is the event for you.
I’ve got to be honest though, I’m not big into animals so this one really isn’t grabbing my attention all that much. I’m excited for some of the characters/content but the overall theme of the event just isn’t doing anything for me. BUT that’s me. Some of you may absolutely love animals and this may be the event you’ve been waiting for …and that’s awesome! Not to be a downer, I’m just not in that group. Canon characters excite me, animals do not.
In any event, be ready, Wednesday, August 1st for things to get a little wild in Springfield! (as wild as they can get in a zoo)
