The Sims FreePlay: October 2016 Update Features Overview

There’s much more to The Sims FreePlay’s new October 2016 Update than you might think! Beside the return of the Halloween Event, there are a few new features, improvements and quests that yet have to happen…

The SimTown Market

Although not unlocked yet, the Movie Studio profession lot will soon offer a chance to win the Director’s Boom Camera! Although I’m not sure how will this event function, one thing is certain – you’ll need to have both Performers and Directors in your Neighborhood with all the Workstations unlocked and upgraded!

Watch Ads for Prizes Feature

A new opportunity to earn free simoleons, SimCash, Social Points and objects is here! If a Sim shown down below appears on any of your Home lots, that means you’ve been given an opportunity to get a certain item for free in exchange for watching a video advertisement!


To start watching an advertisement, press the play button or the watch button. As soon as you’re done¬†watching an ad your prize will be revealed. Sometimes its an object that you can find in your inventory and sometimes its Simoleons, SimCash or Social Points!

You can watch an advertisement again and be given the same opportunity if there’s a button that says More. For example, I got to play 2 advertisements and the offer was over. Just a few minutes after, the Watch Ads for Prizes opportunity was shown again!

New Free CAS Clothing

There’s a new selection of free clothing in Create A Sim! Simply open up your wardrobe and check out what’s new!

Improved Quests Interface

The Quests Interface has got a minor face lift!


Improved Town Icons

Town Icons have also suffered a minor change!
