Three New Features in The Sims FreePlay

The latest update from The Sims FreePlay hits mobile devices today! Download the game on the App Store and Google Play to live out your dreams, move on to the afterlife and pass on legacies for generations to come.

Life Orbs Keep Your Legacy Going!

As the Bingo boards run dry and your Senior Sims head to the afterlife, make sure they leave a memorable legacy to pass onto future generations! Life Orbs can be passed through generations to level up, and you can use that energy to unlock new community lots and hobbies.

Cleats or a Calculator?

In The Sims FreePlay update, you’ll need to make one epic decision: do you want your Sim to be Geeky or Sporty? You’ll be able to fulfill unique Life Dreams based on which personality you choose, so think it through.

Beachside Bliss and King of the Arcade

Depending on which personality you choose, new communities will become your playground. Head for some Beachside Bliss or become King of the Arcade. Explore the coral reef and collect shells on the sand, or become the next Pinball Wizard and Skill Tester at the Arcade.


The Sims FreePlay is available now. Stay in the conversation: Like us on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter.

    WORST UPDATE EVER!! No longer have control over your sims lives & aging. Life cycle is 42 days then they die. You lose paid for sims, any special hair, clothes, etc. 1st Quest kills a sim without your consent. You have to kill several sims to unlock the new lots, then many more to unlock the hobbies within, or pay an exorbitant amount of Life Points to do so. Backing up the clock takes LPs. Pausing req's 4 consecutive deaths of sims actively played with OR left 100% IDLE. Morbid. Not fun.

      I am utterly disappointed in this update. I was forced to kill off one of my Sims and now they want to charge me an additional 110 LP to replace him. I already paid LP points to have the 32 Sims that I had and now you are forcing me to pay again. Not right. I also can't play with the rest of my Sims for fear they will age and be killed off as well. I have not been able to play in about 2 weeks now and I am very disappointed. I would like the option to turn off aging so I can again play my game. Otherwise I will no longer play this or any other EA game I am currently playing.

    Whats the deal with " still" only being allowed 1 sim teen idol??? There isn't enough hobbies for teens to do anyways, so why can we not have more that one teen idol?

    There needs to be an option to turn off aging as there is in The Sims. If not, then I will stop playing Freeplay.

    I stopped playing because I don't want to kill my Sims off! I like that aging is a part of the game, I love the new venue options, but as in the regular Sims 3 games you should have a FREE option to turn aging off! Who are the developers talking to when these changes are made? You have to PAY LPs for them not to die. I saw a tip where you can leave your Sims idle and they won't age, so far that's working. Lots of complaints on other forums, this was the worst update by far.

      Yes, it doesn't make sense to do nothing with your Sims...that isn't really a game anymore.

    Been playing daily for going on 2 years... Spent real $ and countless hours to build my town. I'm done with this game. Maybe I'll check back when I find out EA makes changes for the better. Auto aging stinks!

    I'm agreeing with everyone above... And going to add that the auto ageing is way too quick. Just like Tapped Out and Plants vs Zombies, EA just keeps getting greedier.

    Hello, yes? I am the owner of a Nokia Lumia 822. We got this update on March 29th, and EVERY. SINGLE. PERSON. who downloaded it said that the app crashes before opening. It is COMPLETELY UNPLAYABLE. No one has fixed it in five days. If this was a minor bug, I'd understand, but me along with countless other people CANNOT PLAY YOUR GAME and are trying to contact someone through the reviews of the app but, as far as I can tell, no one has seen or cared. From what I've seen of your company, (con't)

      -- alright obviously there is a character limit here and I doubt anyone could fix it anyway. I'm going to find customer support... or something. >.>

    THIS UPDATE IS REALLY ANNOYING ME BECAUSE PRITICALLY ALL OF MY SIMS WANT TO GROW UP BUT I CANT AFFORD TO KEEP THEM THE SAME AGE SO THERE JUST STANDING THERE WAITING. I like not having to wait for a cake to be baked but to be honest I prefer waiting for the cake even though you still have to pay 5lp its easier and I can choose when they grow up.

    PLEASE...Pardon our sims, they don't deserve to die! The folks who dreamed up this nightmare however?...My little corner of the sim universe is sadly becoming and will remain a ghost town. You guys made this game way too much like reality....and we all know how much fun that is!
