Did You Enjoy The Spring Challenge?
If you were around at the time of the March 22 game patch, you may have participated in the new live event for The Sims 4 called the Spring Challenge. It was an epic new activity with competition, gardening and everything else our sims just love doing. Here’s a snippet of the original leak of the activity before it actually hit your game on the 22nd of last month.
When we think of spring, one thing comes to mind: biting into a delicious Growfruit. You know about Growfruit, right? Green with yellow and blue stripes – delicious. Surely you’ve eaten a thousand of them. No? Well, starting on March 22, you’ll be able to grow them in The Sims 4 as part of a new in-game challenge!
You might notice a new Sim in The Sims 4 named Jasmine Holiday. She’s not some random townie – she’s carrying Growfruit seeds, and if your Sim talks to her, she’ll hand one over.
After you get a Growfruit, you’ll need to have your Sim use their green thumb to plant it to make a Growfruit tree. This tree will – you guessed it – grow more Growfruit. Once you get 20, bring them back to Jasmine Holiday to unlock a reward: a new planter. If you’re able to grow a perfectGrowfruit, then she’ll unlock an even cooler, bedazzled planter for you. Not bad, right?
But this isn’t the only challenge in this update. If you were playing The Sims 4 this time last year, you might remember seeing fanciful eggs scattered around the world. They’re back, kicking off the second annual Bunny Egg Hunt. There are 12 Eggs to collect (up from 10 last year), and if your Sim gathers them all, they’ll unlock an adorable stuffed bunny.
But, just as the season itself, these in-game challenges won’t last forever. They’re only going to be available for the next month – so if you want to get the planters or the stuffed bunny, get ready to start hunting for eggs and growing Growfruit on March 22!
