This post will be updated with more information and more details are known and I play through the update!


For dummies book
Howdy tappers, this American game just got more Americanny with a new 4th of July update that hit our games. 4th of July is just round the corner so it makes sense for EA to release the American update that they always have done around this time. No play-store update, just an in-game download that will start a dialogue with Kent Brockman to find a new mayor. Find the basic ins and outs of this new update …


Dialogues and Walkthoughs will be added in a future post


So Gil is back with a new character/decoration combo for our games which is kick-started after the Kent Brockman dialogue where the screen will pan to a begging Gil with the American flag icon above his head. After the dialogue, being covered in a future post, then the Gil Deal screen will pop up:

Teddy Roseavelt Unlock Screen

This deal is 200 donuts and brings …
Teddy Roosevelt character and a mountain/forest area (the national park)

Robobot or I will do a Gil Deal All you need to know post.

Roosevelt comes with a questline and after the mountain/forest area is placed you will see the unlock screen and his exclamation mark prompt.


The update also brings a range of American themed new and returning content …
