EA has released the next event spoiler packet to us…and then promptly put the splash screen on Facebook.
Saf and I are planning on recording a spoiler video ASAP on this…but obviously, we’ve both been at work all day and haven’t had the chance to do much with the spoilers. So look for the spoiler video to go up tomorrow (Saturday) for a preview of what’s to come with the next event.
In the meantime, as I’ve mentioned over and over again the last week, be prepared for this new event to start on Wednesday, August 10th. We will not see the typical one week break this time around. This is EA’s way of catching up in the schedule to be sure the rest of the year’s events launch in a timely fashion. (expect this event to end on Sept 14th, the next mini-event to start either on the 14th or 21st, and Halloween to start on October 5th. No, I don’t know that for certain…I’ve just been doing this long enough to have a pretty good guesstimation of when things may start up next)
Anywho…for those that want to know, I’ll post the splash screen below the fold, and remember to look for more details with our spoiler video tomorrow.
It is update time in Springfield my friends! It’s summertime in our pocket-sized towns, and what better way to beat the heat than a waterpark?! But will Bart be tall enough to ride Devil’s Deluge? How will it work out with the waterpark cop? You’ve got to play the update to find out.
Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes. For each of the parts of The Devil and the Deep Blue Slide questline, you’ll have to earn via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.
It’s now time to take a look at the rest of the prizes, after Swimsuit Homer, on the Splash and Burn prize track and see how you can build your very own pocket-sized waterpark…
This post (the one you’re reading now) is meant to give you further details about the box that will appear in your game once you’ve completed the Splash and Burn mini-event. So let’s get to it, shall we?
Note: This box is slated to leave games on August 10th…that’s the same day the Splash and Burn event ends. Keep that in mind as you’re planning what you may/may not do with this box.
