It’s spooky season! As usual, The Sims Freeplay has gone all-in with this theme!
Trick or treat, Simmers! It’s time to experience the most mysterious Halloween party ever thrown – if you dare! Set the scene for a scare with outdoor objects to get guests in the Halloween spirit before they even walk through the door. How about greeting them by wearing the frighteningly-fun Funko Pop! Masks, or light the way with ghoulishly cute glow-in-the-dark ghost or pumpkin collectibles. When guests enter your haunted-ish house, they can dine on regal furniture, admire a spooky portrait with eyes that definitely don’t follow you around, or disappear behind a secret door in the wall! Let us carve out the rest of the ways you’ll enjoy our Mysterious Masquerade update.
Base Game Improvements
Daily ‘Check-In’ Rewards
Play The Sims FreePlay every day and you’ll be rewarded for simply playing the game! We’ve created a daily rewards system so if you play daily, you’ll earn prizes! Maintain your play streak to earn larger rewards. Or, if you’d rather play at your own pace, earn ‘Cumulative Rewards’ by playing a set number of days at any time! The more you play the more you’ll earn.
Daily rewards refresh daily at 6PM your local time. Don’t worry if you forget to claim your prizes the last time you logged in, they’ll be waiting there for you the next time you play. Prizes include premium currency, Simoleons, VIP points, décor, outfits and more!
Click on your Sim’s mailbox on their home lot to open the new screen – click on the mailbox icon again to claim everything from both the ‘Daily Rewards and Check-In Rewards’ tabs automatically.
We know so many of you have hundreds of items in your Sim’s inventory from accumulating almost 10 years of rewards from our events, quests, hobbies and more! We are so excited to reveal our newly designed inventory filtering system to help you find your décor and Home Store items much quicker when redesigning, renovating and remodeling, so you can spend less time scrolling through dozens of categories trying to find that ONE thing!
In the Home Store, click on the new ‘filtering’ icon with three lines to choose your filter settings and find what you want faster! Try it out now!
Funko ‘Funkoween’ Fun Pack
Funko, the biggest toy company in the world, has arrived in The Sims FreePlay at the spookiest time of year. Invite your Sims over for an eerie, ghastly ‘Funkoween’ party in SimTown to scare family and friends and have fun at the same time. Get creative with your Halloween costumes! Sims can put a giant Funko pumpkin, ghost or witch Pop! mask on their heads! Just beware – who is hiding under that mask? Plus, add some spooky shinanigans to your home with the irresistible glow-in-the-dark pumpkin and ghost collectibles to be the life (and ghoul) of the party!
Head to the online store to redeem the exclusive free pack, available for a limited time for the duration of the update!
‘Mysterious Masquerade’ Live Event
Starting 28 October, the ‘Mysterious Masquerade’ live event begins! The aim of this event is to collect enough resources from the Arts and Crafts Stations (found in the ‘Event’ tab of the Home Store or your inventory) to unlock all the items in this event but be quick – this event is only live for 10 days.
Be our guest – invite Sims over for a Halloween party in the luxurious enchanted castle grand prize house lot, black and gold regal wallpaper, red velvet drape curtains, skull décor, ambient candle lighting, floor to ceiling bookcases with ladders, giant dining table with matching chairs and much more. Watch out for the painting with eyeballs that follow you as you walk by! Will your guests spot the hidden door in the wall as you trick or treat them throughout the night?
Play dress up with new costumes and masks. Watch as Sims attend in ballgowns, vests and dapper ensembles – will you be able to tell who is who, in their masquerade masks as you dance the night away in the ballroom?
We’re bringing a Nordic flair to your Sim’s homes with our latest SimChase and Influence Island events!
