New Year Update: An Overview
After a show-stopping update that brought not only fresh playable events and purchasable packs but also highly-anticipated base game updates, the Sims Mobile team delivered news of the second half of this astonishing update December 28th. This portion of the update comes stuffed with the usual: a brand new Treasure Hunt, a fresh Sweet Treats Showdown, three new Wumples Wishlists, and an avalanche of new purchasable packs.
Treasure Hunt: Winter Wonderland
Sims Mobile will kick off January with a new winter-themed Treasure Hunt. On January 11th, players will dig, dust, and excavate to earn relics and golden bunnies. These in-game tokens purchase a variety of fresh new items that Simmers can use to decorate their homes or jazz up their Sims' wardrobes.
Players can look forward to earning the following common prizes:
If a player successfully excavates all the aforementioned prizes, they can unlock the grand prize chest for 1,000 relics and 320 gold bunnies.
Inside the grand prize box, players will find:
Sweet Treats: Charming Crafts
Sims Mobile will round out January with the Sweet Treat: Charming Crafts event. On January 25th, players will bake, mix, and sprinkle their way through a reality-show baking contest. Players who successfully out-bake the game's "rival" chef will earn two kinds of tokens for their efforts: sweet tokens and royal tokens. Sweet Tokens purchase common prizes. Royal tokens purchase rare prizes. After collecting all the common and rare prizes, players immediately unlock the grand prize.
For Sweet Treat: Charming Crafts, cute and kitschy worthy of even the most discerning of knitting enthusiasts are on the menu.
Players can look forward to the following prizes:
Incoming Wumples Quests
Three new Wumples Wishlist events will hop into game January 9th, January 20th, and January 31st. Players complete a laundry list of energy-expending activities in return for decor or Create-a-Sim wardrobe items.
Wumples WIshlist #46 offers hanging holiday cards, standing holiday cards, and 10 fashion gems.
Wumples Wishlist #47 offers a lovable lion hat, handsome hamster hat, and 10 fashion gems.
Wumples Wishlist #48 offers Orange you Glad and Apple of the Eye Wall art alongside 10 fashion gems.
This update is brimming with brand new packs for purchase. To ring in the new year, the Sims Mobile team has compiled a series of glittering, luxurious build and CAS packs from which Simmers can choose.
The Bronze, Silver, and Gold Luxe Living packs, for $4.99, $7.99, and $17.99 USD respectively, will trigger in-game on January 6th. If players purchase all three packs, they will unlock the fourth pack, Boutique Bedroom, for free. Essentially, Boutique Bedroom awards the player with an enormous, king-sized four-poster bed which comes with two floating end tables. Sleek and elegant, this Art-Deco inspired bed is a unique asset that many Simmers will find difficult to pass up. Similarly, the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Living packs boast a variety of swanky, eye-pleasing furniture for the early 20th-century connoisseur.
The Sims Mobile will also offer several "boost" packs to help players through the notorious grind that is Treasure Hunt and Sweet Treat Showdown.
In addition, three more purchasable packs: Wintery Retreat, Wonderful and Warm, and Collection of Crafts will also populate in-game on January 11th, January 19th, and January 25th respectively. Wintery Retreat offers comfortable, cabin-worthy decor, while "Wonderful and Warm" dresses the Sim man in your life in cozy style. Collection of Crafts compliments the Charming Crafts Sweet Treat event with adorable knitted decor, pastel-colored storage, and hand woven rugs.
