The Sims FreePlay gains holiday features in latest update on Windows Phone 8

The Sims FreePlay is getting into the holiday spirit on Windows Phone. We reviewed The Sims FreePlay back in early October and walked away impressed with the amount of Sims content you can pack into a mobile game. The game has just received an update that brings a set of new features and items just in time for the holidays.

Head to the Windows Phone Store and you’ll see a new update for The Sims FreePlay. That puts the game at version and brings a ton of new content that is all holiday specific. Here are some of the features you can look forward to in the latest update to the game:

  • Help Santa find his elves
  • Make presents
  • Get rid of the grouch
  • Unlock reindeers
  • Celebrate New Year’s Eve with a bang

We'll be installing the game/update and taking a look at it soon. In the meantime, tell us what you think below of the latest festive additions. 

The game is free (various in-app purchases) in the Windows Phone Store and works on devices with both Windows Phone 8 and 1GB of RAM. Download clocks in at 555 MB. Grab it from the Windows Phone Store today. 

Thanks, David B., for the tip!

  • I wish I had Space for this game on my 820. :/// Fuck.
  • I too. :(
  • You could update XBL games?
  • 556mb wtf
  • Seems faster
  • Agreed.
  • And still isn't available here...
  • Almost wish I hadn't uninstalled it, but I needed more breathing room in storage.
  • No 512 RAM support! Fuck you ea ;(
  • had more than 2GB free space before I started downloading this update. Dowload is still in progress and I got a warning indicating low storage. Its high time EA learnt how to do delta updates.
  • Mustang, I had the same problem. I just deleted the whole app.
  • did the free space become normal after uninstalling sims? this failed download attempt grew my 'system' space to 5.18 GB.
  • Really hope Sims Freeplay goes to Windows 8 store because I am using L 720. :/
