Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Fifteen days into 2020 and we have our first update of the roaring 20s! To, what should be, no one’s surprise…it’s a mini-event! What are we covering this time? The future! (insert loud groan from Patric)
Holidays of Future Past is officially live in our towns…and with it FINALLY arrives future Homer and Marge. Two characters I was incredibly annoyed weren’t included with the previous future updates.
Remember, if you haven’t downloaded the update from the app store (it hit last night), you’ll need to do so in order to see the new content. This update will remove the snow from your Springfield, so be prepared for that. And if you don’t see the update available try these steps: Hard close your App store, clear your cache, restart your device. When it reboots, open your app store and search Tapped Out.
What’s included with this event? Let’s take a look….
Note: You’ll need the Simpson family free for a 6s task to kick things off.
Holidays of Future Past Mini-Event Ends January 29th
Things kick off for Holidays of Future Past with a trigger from Marge, and some dialogue between the “present-day” Simpsons family…
Marge: 3…2…1…Happy New Year!
Homer: Okay, now let’s open the next year’s champagne!
Bart: Quiet! I’m Facetiming my friends on vacation in Hawaii and I don’t want to spoil New Year’s for them!
Lisa: Ugh, this family never changes. Mom went overboard decorating, Dad’s drunk, and Bart’s a jerk.
Marge: Lisa’s right. A little bit of a try-hard, but right. This year we’re all making New Year’s resolutions!
This is followed by 6s tasks for the family to “Make New Year’s Resolutions”.
After you complete the tasks, the event will kick off…
I should warn you. The dialogue for this event is…weird. Even for Simpsons standards. It gets a little confusing and strange…but stick with it. It makes sense in the end, in a weird way.
Remember, this is a mini-event. So it’ll run for 2 weeks (ends Jan. 29th), and there’s only 1 prize track/questline. Once you’ve completed that you’ve finished this mini-event. Nothing to do after that but wait for the next update…
Now onto the content…
We’ll start with the prizes:
Here’s a list of who earns the Holiday Decoration Event Currency…
Retired Homer (New Premium)
Empty-Nest Marge (New Premium)
Now onto the Premium content…
Martian Vacation w/ Retired Homer & Empty-Nest Marge- 175 Donuts. Retired Homer and Empty-Nest Marge are two separate FULL characters, and they each come with their own questline. The Martian Vacation does NOT earn a bonus %.
Guys, I’m pretty excited about this update. Aside from the fact that it’s something to do in TSTO, it fills in a LOT of missing content from previous updates with future content. Time to finish my Springfield of the Future area!
Now if we could just get Hugh, we’ll be all set….
Thoughts on the update? Excited for the content? Do you like the future episodes as much as I do? Or are you, like Patric, not a fan of multiple versions of the same character in Springfield? Plans for content locations? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
