Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Happy New Year!
It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Week 4 of Abe’s in Toyland is live in Springfield!
Things kick off for week 4 with some more dialogue between Grampa and Death…
Death: Great! So that’s how you saved Christmas.
Grampa: What are you talking about? That story was about the FBI and Communists.
Death: Close enough. Off we go to the afterlife. Come on, come on!
Grampa: I’m not going through pearly gate one until I tell you how I saved Christmas.
Death: Okay, fine! I’m an emotionless specter, but, boy, I am so going to enjoy killing you.
Grampa: It all started right after my wife Mona ran away. I was bussing tables at Spiro’s Jazz Den when I met a lovely lady named Rita Lafleur. She had legs that went all the way to the place next door… Gunther’s Polka Hole.
This triggers the week 4 questline, A Jazzy Xmas Special, and is followed by 4hr task for Grampa, as well as a task to collect Week 4 Currency (50). A Jazzy Xmas Special is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Week 4 prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during week 4…
Here’s EA’s synopsis for Act 4/Week 4:
Death impatiently tries to take Abe away, but he refuses to go until he tells the story of how he saved Christmas. Abe starts off recounting how he met Rita LaFleur at Spiro’s. The two hit it off and Abe does the minimum amount of parenting before getting cleaned up for a date with Rita. Abe struggles for things to talk about during the first date, so recounts all the stories that he just told Death within his story about Rita. Death gets annoyed and keeps steering Abe back on track with the story. Abe gets a ring to propose to Rita but Homer swallows it. In a rush to get a new ring, Abe crashes into Santa’s sleigh with his car. Abe and Santa strike a deal – if Abe and Rita deliver all the presents to the kids, Santa will give Abe a new ring. Abe ends up dumping most of the presents into the lake. As he finishes his story, the sun comes up. Abe has missed his chance to die. Death, fed up and bored, starts to leave, but Abe is sad because he wants to die and hates living in the retirement castle.
As I stated above, you’ll basically go right into the A Jazzy Xmas Special questline, which is what the week 4 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Week 4 (Act 4) prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Week 4/Act 4….
