Pride Month 2015 & Gil’s New Deal – Complete Overview

As fast as Bruce Jenner can whip on a skirt and become Caitlyn the beauty queen, so does the rush of rainbow to our tiny little Simpson world’s. In what is truly a first of its kind update, Pride Week 2015 has kicked off to celebrate Pride Month or LGBT Pride Month, which is celebrated every June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan, NY. Hopefully, for everyone’s sake, this update is accepted with a warm welcome rather a cold shoulder. As with every update no matter how hot the topic we are here to give you the hard facts, from a neutral stance and as objectively as possible.

1Call me paranoid but this isn’t my first day behind this screen with a controversial update and I have seen first hand how ugly it can get. I want to warn anyone with less than appropriate intentions, keep the comments to the update at hand and the actual facts regarding the new content, leave your personal beef at the door, if applicable. 

For those of you who are ready to boogie down for Pride Month, come get some sweaty, hot Overview, right this way!

As the title of this post implies there is a little bit more than Pride Month going on here. EA has dealt their surprisingly consistent “one-two” punch with a dual release of Pride Month and a new Gil Deal. We’re going to cover all of it right here the same way he handle all Overviews. Here is the basic release info with enough detail to get you going but not too much that you don’t need to come back to us until the next update. Leggo!

Your game will remain the same as far as progression once the update is removed. Should you decide not to complete the quests you will only have missed the specific content listed above.

  • Springfield Over the Rainbow – Parts 1-6. The last day to complete this quest is July 10, 2015 @ 8:00 am BST.
  • Mothusiasm – Parts 1-3 – Available upon purchase of Roscoe and the Ajax Steel Mill
  • Dance Off – Available if you are Level 25, if you have Smithers and have completed Mothusiasm Pt. 3. An additional job is also unlocked for Duffman if you have him. The same job will unlock for Smithers and Roscoe too.

That about covers the Pride Month 2015 mini-event. Some colorful additions in decoration and character. I sincerely hope you all play the update and enjoy it. Stay tuned for more coverage as you know we always do. Thanks for reading!

  1. And again no new land …grrrr… it’s so annoying. .. or EA could more items make peaceable in krustyland

  2. Oh man I love this episode. I really like to buy the steel mill but I’m waiting since The Homer for Herb. Tough decision to buy it or waiting for Herb.

    Like

    1. I’ve been waiting for Herb for close to three months now. It’s starting to feel more like waiting for Godot.

      Even more than Herb himself, I need a building related to him, either his mansion or his office. And the only reason I need or care about that is so I can have some place to put the Homer that would make sense. It’s just been sticking out like a sore thumb all this time.

      1. The herb powell building with him has been in the quest files since The Homer update, just as text though, no image other then Herb’s head for the questline. He can be released anytime, though the thing is, the jobs at powell motors are premium pay so probably he and PM are premium.

    As much as I love this update, I feel the content is quite limited. I would of love to of seen characters like Julio and his boyfriend and maybe buildings like hairy sheers of whatever it’s called. Much better than Roscoe who I’ve never heard of in the simpsons. And maybe some costumes of when Bart and Mil house dressed as girls! So much better ideas, I’m just hoping maybe there saving them for a level update????

    1. Roscoe and the mill was part of the episode Homers fobia with John Waters, Id rather see John than Roscoe but I dont make the calls.

      1. I was hoping for John too. Great character, and I prominent one in the history of LGBT acceptance in the Simpsons! Will still be buying the steel mill. The ending of that episode cracked me up when I saw it.

  7. I was really hoping Julio would be a character addition. He would fit right in to this theme.

  8. Could a list of the new characters jobs/duration/visual or non visual be included. That’s my number one way to decide whether or not to buy a character.

    Definatley considering the Steel Mill, but holding off just until I can see the pros/cons. So long as Rosoe has some fabulous dance moves as a visual task then we have a sale!

      1. Even though I sent almost all of Springfield to boogie down at the steel Mill I thought it would be fun and appropriate to have wiggum go undercover , chalmers break character, the boys celebrate Wod Fir and Martin allow it to go away in his ice princess outfit- any other themed activities you can think of with visible tasks? Thanks 🙂
