EA Creator Network in Coral

Presented by EA Creator Network. Early Access to The Sims FreePlay update was provided by EA/FireMonkeys.


The Sims FreePlay team never take a moments rest it seems, as another game update has arrived just in time to kick off Autumn!

This game update, Falling for Fall, is focused around getting your Sims’ homes ready for autumn and getting your hands on harvest decor! There’s new live events, event re-runs, SimChase events, and more!

A survey appeared in-game earlier this year and the community voted for glamour and luxury as a theme they wanted in a future update. The team have delivered and your Sims can also look forward to living the VIP lifestyle in the latest live event and influence island!

Let’s dig into some of the key things that are in this update! If you’re looking for a breakdown and dates/times of all events, you can read this blog post!


Base Game Improvements

New Inbox Notifications – a new inbox system has arrived, which is displayed as an envelope icon in the bottom right navigation. It will notify you when Sims finish actions, work shifts, construction finishes and more.

Active Tasks Menu Refresh – The Active Tasks menu is now more like a calendar so it’s easier to navigate and you can see what live events are coming up next and what you can look forward to! There’s two tabs now: active and upcoming and this will turn into a countdown when there’s less than 24 hours until the event.

SimChase Seasons 47 and 48

If you are craving an autumnal palette to pumpkin spice-ify your home, you’ll want to pay attention to SimChase Season 47: fall Feud and Season 48: Autumn Aversion.

In Season 47, you’ll unlock rewards perfect for creating an outdoor harvest display including textured rugs, trays of pumpkins, cornstalks with flowers, a wreath, rocking chairs and outfits!

With Season 48, you can add notes of colour detail including giant wall wreaths, collections of kitchen clutter, a farmhouse kitchen sink, retro fridges and casual outfits. This particular season certainly feels a lot more geared for interior decorations!

Halloween Chocolatier Hobby Event

The Halloween Chocolatier Hobby Event is being re-run so you have a chance to prepare for a ghostly party in-game! You can earn a range of costumes and gingerbread furniture packs.
