App Store Update: The Van Houtens

ALERT: This is currently, as of this posting Tuesday night ET, an APP Store update only.  The event is NOT live in-game.  So please don’t ask why the update hasn’t started for you yet.  It won’t go live in-game, even if you’ve downloaded the update, until Wednesday, August 12th at 11am ET, 1500 UTC. 

Also, if you don’t see this update available in your app store try hard closing the store and reopening.  Then do a search for Tapped Out.  It may not appear in your “update” list right away.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it looks like while I was busy feeding, bathing, putting my kids to bed, and handling the constant “Mommy I need to go pee!” or “Mommy I need water!” or “Mommy I’m not tired!” calls coming from a certain 4-year-olds bedroom…it seems EA has released the next update in TSTO. Right on time, for a change.

This is currently an APP STORE update, and not live in games.

So who had a Milhouse family reunion in the TSTO update pool?

The Van Houten Event will start on Wednesday August 12th and 11am ET (1500 UTC).

Here’s some quick info about the update…

So let’s take a trip down memory lane via the sound effects of TSTO…
