After days of speculation, the Sims Mobile Game Changers finally revealed the newest update: a new type of treasure hunting live event.
This new event does not give players a new area to explore, but it offers players levels five and over to earn CAS and Build mode prizes in a new way. Alternating with Sweet Treats events, Treasure Hunting events will send players hunting for clues and then leading both investigations and excavations in various areas of the existing map.
Here’s a quick run-down of the way this new event works:
👉🏽There is NO new area.
💰When the treasure hunt begins, your Sim will complete a 4-hour event at their home, searching for “clues.” 📜
💰 The “clues” earned at the home event unlock other events at Downtown, Waterfront, and Market square.
💰Using special tokens called “Walkie Talkies,” Simmers get to “dig” for “relics.” Players can purchase clues about which relics you’ll find with simoleons and SimCash. They can also purchase extra dig opportunities with SimCash, simoleons, or cupcakes.
👉🏽PLAYERS USE THE RELICS TO PURCHASE PRIZES IN THE ORDER THEY LIKE.
👉🏽 You must unlock an entire row of prizes to unlock all the color swatches of those prizes, however.
👉🏽Participate in Small Frye’s side quest for extra relics
👉🏽The grand prizes for this particular dig are: a ping pong table, a female braided up-do, and a unisex mascot outfit. BUT PLAYERS MUST HAVE ENOUGH RELICS TO UNLOCK THE GRAND PRIZE.
Game Changers also dropped news about a Wumples quest which will surface October 5th, and a set of purchasable packs which will trigger in-game after the September 28th update.
(Many thanks to Simmerdown Mal for all her images!)
What are you most excited to dig up in this university-themed treasure hunt?
Stay safe, never stop digging, and happy Simming!
