Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Some exciting news…
EA must know we’re all getting antsy at home because, for the first time in a very long while, we’ve received the content package for the next event from EA…BEFORE the event hit! 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). And/or the event hits the game files. 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, as we all thought, the next event will start tomorrow, April 8th
So be prepared on Wednesday, April 8th 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 already know the theme as that was teased out on The Simpsons Instagram this past weekend…
So, yes, this event will be all about Simpsons Wrestling! With a very disturbing splash screen:
And for the theme of this, our old friend Aristotle Amadopolis makes a return. You can imagine the twists the story will take knowing Mr. Burns and Aristotle are involved.
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, the usual suspects will be needed to earn event currency. So make sure you keep your characters free Wednesday morning…don’t send anyone on long tasks until AFTER the event hits and you know who you need.
Here’s a little more…
-This is another multi-event. 4 Acts. However, at least according to the info we’ve been given, this will be like the Black History Event and run for 5 weeks not 4. So be on the lookout for funky start dates for each Act.
-This event is slated to end on May 13th.
-I have no idea of the item limits will be increased, and we won’t know until it actually hits and those who are at their limit can check.
-Despite the multi-event format, this actually looks like a very FUN event. Lots of characters and buildings. 4 of the 5 prizes on the prize track are original, new content. 1 of the 5 prizes is a Mystery Box token for a box of returning content (or, I assume, donuts).
-1 new premium combo per Act. Like the Black History Event, you’ll need 600 donuts to unlock it all.
-Gil we be making a return, in the very same manner he appeared during the Black History Event.
Overall this is very similar to the Black History Event, just Wrestling. Dialogue should be excellent, prizes are good, but yes, the same format. So those wishing for things to squish or additional challenges will be out of luck this time around! But, the content looks great (event Patric said so)!
Once the update hits the files I’ll post some spoiler images for those who wish to see them, until then this will have to do. So, be ready, tomorrow (April 8th) for things to get a little wild in Springfield!
Thoughts about the next event? Pumped for what might be coming? What do you think we’ll see? Will you be ready? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
