Update: The update is available in the app stores…remember it doesn’t start until TOMORROW (Wednesday 4/7).
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Just giving y’all a little reminder that we’re expecting a brand new multi-event to hit our App Stores later today. This update will change the splash screen on your game for the new event, BUT the new event itself won’t start until tomorrow (Wednesday) morning.
Curious what’s in the new update? Well, if you missed it last week you can check out our detailed spoilers video here…
Don’t want to look at spoilers, but want to know who to keep free? Well, you’ll need Bart free to start things off. You’ll also need the following characters free in your Springfield to complete event quests: Homer, Marge, Lisa, Flanders, Skinner, Wiggum, and Frink (if you have him). Now, I’m not 100% certain until the event hits the files, but based on the Act 1 synopsis I would also keep Mr. Burns and Smithers free. And I will update more on who is needed for tasks once the update hits the files.
For now, enjoy the spoilers, look for the update to hit the app store later today, and get ready to have some fun starting tomorrow!
Thoughts? Excitement? Are you ready for it?! Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
Those of you on iOS may have noticed you got an update today for the next TSTO Event, Springfield Jobs. (Android, from what I can tell, hasn’t hit yet…It’s now on Android, same details apply. Nothing will actually happen in game until tomorrow) While you’ve gotten the update NOTHING is different in Springfield. Why? Why can’t you start the new event?! Why?! WHY?! WHYYYYYYY!?
Well, EA is doing something a little different this time around. Maybe to combat those who get the update a day late, maybe for other reasons… But this update won’t officially start (i.e. you won’t see changes in YOUR game, even if you’ve downloaded the update) until TOMORROW March 21st at 10am ET (1400 GMT).
So don’t panic! The new event will be live before you know it. For now, just relax and check out this awesome new Splash Screen! Shoutout to Super Safi for sending it over to me, as my Android doesn’t have the update just yet…
I’ll be back tomorrow once the update goes live with the rundown. So don’t panic if you don’t see our usual 6:30am (ET) post on the site…I’ll have all the content ready to go once the event actually launches.
Feel free to use this post as an Open Thread to speculate…but remember this is still a Spoiler Free site.
P.S. Here’s the current app store description (thanks again to Super Safi)
