It looks like the wait is finally over. The Sims Mobile official Twitter account tweeted out an announcement today, saying that the Halloween event will be getting underway this week.
Simmers, it's time to stir your cauldrons, raise the dead, and grab your candy corn. The first part of our Halloween Haunt starts later this week. Stay tuned for more info! #TheSimsMobile pic.twitter.com/kk8qONqyMf

Shortly after this announcement, players started receiving the new game update. Here’s what the new update description says in the Google Play Store.
Hey, Sims Mobile players! Spook your Sims this Halloween, where you can:
- Get ready for scary season with a Countdown to Halloween quest, available until 10/23
- Have a screamin’ good time collecting candy corn during the Halloween Haunt from 10/23 – 11/2, with a holiday quest and activities
- Use your candy corn to get ghoulishly-themed furniture and decorations, plus boo-tiful costumes like the Undead Bride and Groom!
We’ve also fixed an issue with venues re-locking. Thanks for playing!
Upon installing the new update, players will notice a new Halloween-themed icon right away when they go to launch their games. Once in the game, there doesn’t appear to be anything new just yet, but check out your heirloom collection: you’ll see a new relationship story called A Spirited Friendship which can be unlocked by obtaining the rare Ghostly Figure family heirloom.
So while it looks like the preliminary quest to the main event hasn’t fully kicked off just yet, our games are definitely being prepped for something new and exciting!
