The Sims Mobile Update - October 16th, 2018 Patch Notes

[ Edited ]

Hey Simmers,

This update is absolutely spooktacular! The Halloween Haunt event will begin on October 23rd, giving YOU the chance to earn a motley assortment of costumes and spooky items.

Note: If you are not seeing the Update in the iOS App Store, please try going to your Updates tab and pull to refresh the page.

Key Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue with venues periodically re-locking for some players
  • Fixed an issue with Helping Hand purchases not always completing correctly
  • Fixed an issue with the language toggle not saving preference after switching to English
  • Sims should no longer want to hang out in the bathroom quite as frequently (seriously, what are they doing in there)

Thanks for reading, and all your continued support of The Sims Mobile!

Hi thank you for updating! I'm just making sure after we updated the game that we shouldn't see any difference on Halloween until 10/23 is that correct?

I can’t get the new update. It says it downloaded and the icon pic changed. But no update when I open it.

Im pretty sure you guys did receive the update, its just that the Halloween event hasn't started yet so not much has changed. When you look on your device, does the sims mobile app icon have a witch on it? If yes, you have updated successfully. 

 

Also, within game you can find a new heirloom that will be available in a few days. Just check your heirloom collection.

Ok, so yes! I do have the icon. Other than that nothing. What I've read made it seem like somethings should already be themed, but I get it now. Now we just wait.

Some of you have had questions about Halloween in this update. The Countdown to Halloween quest will start within a few days. The quest offers several spooky items that will boost your progress through the Halloween Haunt. Enjoy!

So,  sounds like another Loot Box Event with chances to win Halloween themed items and a probable Heirloom ??  

 

I didn’t need to sleep for a few days anyway 😂

Hey Standard smile, just a question. Did we get the date right? It's October the 23rd 11 a.m. in Europe and the event hasn't started yet. 

Players around the world are waiting for the event to start Standard smile

I think the events usually begin at around 12pm Eastern Time, i could be wrong Frown which you can convert to your local time zone depending on which part of Europe you're located.
