Teens Arrive in The Sims Freeplay

Throw Birthday Parties, Study at Sim Town High or Even Become a Teen Idol

By popular demand from players and community around the world, our fans can now unleash Teens upon Sim Town in the latest update for The Sims FreePlay. The “Teen” update allows fans to grow their Sims into a teenager, make the grade and even become famous.

Osiris, the little green alien, is back and ready to use his extra-spectacularly technological skills to give birthday cakes the ability to turn Preteens into Teens! Let your Teens have their first awkward kiss, find a serious date or hang out in the park. Since launch there has been over 16 million cakes baked to grow Babies into Toddlers and then on to Preteens – now that’s a lot of cake!

Now you can hit the books at Sim Town High and earn rewards on the way to becoming an A+++ student. Plus, coming Mid-November Simmers will also be able to live a life of fame and fortune by becoming a Teen Idol where you can compose songs on the new keyboard, bass guitar, drum, electric guitar and microphone. Sign autographs, take photos and make other Teens swoon – all perks of being famous.

Celebrate a famous Teen by building the Sim Town sign to receive extra bonuses when collecting Town Map rewards. Finish its’ construction to receive the Teen Idol Mansion, the perfect pad for your Teen.

To get players in the Halloween spirit, six new ghosts have also invaded Sim Town in the “Teen” update. Simmers so far have become expert ghost hunters with over 80 million gruesome ghosts caught to date.  Fans who catch them all extra ghosts by Halloween have the opportunity to receive spooky new items and costumes.

Get the update now on the Apple App Store, Google Play and Amazon AppStore

    Im very upset!! It is too difficult to contact the support staff! Ever since the update my sims freeplay app keeps crashing and when it does it resets all my sims actions. So i can only play for a very short time before my sims start over again. I paid twice for a birthday cake (ten life points) so that i can create a teen sim but right when my sim had only a few hours to go the game crashed and reset all my sims. I had sims that i just sent to work that got reset as well. Please fix this soon!

    I'm also experiencing issues in my sims game, where it's freezing up so bad it's unplayable or it will go black then send me back to my home screen, or it will lose any progress I have on a task I will come back later and every sim is just standing there doing nothing. It's really frustrating. Please fix these bugs.

      The firemonkeys are not responding to tickets. I created mine on oct 7 and posted 4 follows ups. No response. Their FB pag s full f similar complaints. Can someone at EA call them and see if the building burned down or something? Surely there must be logical explanation, otherwise it just seems like they are ignoring their customers.

    Love the update love the game. But since the update my game like the others freezes. Not only that when I go to browse the closet I notice some of the items are missing. Some hairstyles are missing some clothes are missing and some shoes that I had before the update are missing. The selection I had of clothing that I had for the Sims before are no longer there. O and I would like to suggest more clothing options for the preteens.

    My game has also reset 3 times and I have lost lp for two birthday cakes so far. I don't know if I should attempt again?! I'd like to be reimbursed for the two b-day cakes at least.

    I am on level 31, I have completed the coming of age quest, built the high school and baked birthday cakes. I still cannot age any of my preteens. It says I must complete the coming of age quest which is attained at level 23 but I have passed level 23 and completed the quest. I am getting very frustrated now. Please help!

    @ Frenchdreamer It is the alien quest line (coming of age) If you haven't gotten it yet, then you need to go to the app store and re-download the game so it installs the update.

    Ever since the new teenager update, most of the wardrobe options have disappeared, shirts, pants, shoes and outfits, have all disappeared and has probably been cut down to about half. I also have the same problem with the salon, more then half of the hairstyle options are gone, there are only two of the styles with limited colour ranges. It is extremely annoying and I would like this problem fixed.

    I just went on my sims freeplay app after over a week. I noticed that the ten life points I had spent were there again and I thought "wow EA games actually made a solution and fixed the game!" So I spent 5 life points AGAIN to create another birthday cake. Once again the game crashed and everyone started their actions over. And my sims are always dressed in their work clothes even if I change them. This update sucks and despite how many people complain you wont change anything or fix it!!

    As an apology, when you FINALLY fix the game, you should at least restore the life points players lost or give players a package of life points!!

    I added a baby to my town and when I came back later, the baby was gone and the bubble was there flashing to add a child, so I clicked it, added it again and now I have one baby in the crib and another baby floating around in the house in different locations every time I come back to the house.

      Same thing happened to me but I ended up with twins who have the same name. They have different hair so I can tell them apart. It's all good.

      I had this problem, the way I done it was click the baby on the floor and delete the sim by clicking on the wardrobe. it's iust a game glitch and the original baby will be in the crib. :)
