We have prepared ourself, Winter is coming, snow started falling on Topix, a new banner has appeared (with the 2012 Christmas event splashscreen), EA has too with a touch of preview of the winter event. We haven’t got any indication yet of an event starting right now but we got some piece of information on the last store update description. Join us right after the jump for our thoughts.
Winter is right behind the corner, but we’ve no date yet.
In the store update description, something interesting is pointed out: A recount of the presidential election. Could EA be thinking of adding Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the game?
Trump appeared recently 3 times in Youtube specials regarding the election: in Trumptastic Voyage,
in The Debateful Eight with Hillary
and last in 3 a.m..
In Bart to the Future, The Simpsons (16 years before it happened) predicted Trump being elected.
We saw President Lisa recently in the SciFi event,
is it possible a small mini-event is coming next right before the Winter big event?
Update: I have been informed this could take place after the winter event with the inauguration for Trump.
Previous years have been quite random on the days Christmas/Winter hit:
- 2012: Wednesday 5th
- 2013: Tuesday 10th
- 2014: Wednesday 3rd
- 2015: Tuesday 8th
The Winter preview has no set limited time end yet, and the preview new item is the Gnome Box. Will it have something to do with the event, or is it just an item from “The Nigthmare After Krustmas“?
We’re all waiting for a teaser released by EA, as usual in the latest events, on Facebook to know what’s next. Hopefully that’ll give us more hints.
Is it possible it’ll hit next week on Tuesday or Wednesday, unless EA has other plans to start it tomorrow. We’ll just have to wait and see. As soon as we have any indication of something starting you’ll see a post popup on the site and on your email.
Check back soon for all the infos on what’s next. In the meantime, happy tapping folks!
