What Changed with the Level 56 Update? (August 6th)

Level 56 has been rolled out to all platforms and brings with it a little exciting daredevil content. As most of you know by now, every update not only brings new content but also changes to many other aspects of the game. From prices to appearance, task lengths to requirements, any part of the game is subject to change and many changes affect every player. Follow us right after the jump for the list of all of the changes.

Apu, Ruth Powers, Wolfcastle, Sideshow Bob and Francesca Terwilligers were added to the Parents characters group. Characters groups are set within the game’s files and are a way to classify multiple characters for those big tasks that require 5, 10, 15 characters to be sent.

A new building group, Religious Places, was added which includes the Kwik-E-Mart, First Church of Springfield and Springfield Buddhist Temple. While a Kwik E Mart appears far from a religious building, it is where you send Apu to “Pray to Ganesh.”

The audio file for the Truckasaurus that plays when tapped has been replaced with a new sound.

  1. Darn. This means I can’t move my ice cream truck. :/ I’m not sure why they felt the need to change that.


  2. Hi there!

    Thanks for all the info – you are a great team that makes this game more interesting even when nothing new is being realesed.

    You have not mentioned that EA gave us free donuts (15!) for all the glitches that needed to be fixed..
