Good morning and welcome to a great day! Why is it a great day you ask? Well aside from the normal reasons, you know, birds chirping, sun shining and all that, we have just been gifted Update 2…well sort of. While the Update is installed and some of the new stuff is there and waiting for us, The Incredibles Event hasn’t actually started just yet. So, for now, we’ll go over what is new and amazing and then I’ll do a new post on the event once it opens! Let’s jump right in.
THE OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE FOR THE INCREDIBLES EVENT IS JUNE 16 FOR IOS AND ANDROID. WINDOWS TO FOLLOW SOON AFTER!
From the Devs
When the evil Omnidroid raids the park, The Incredibles arrive to save the day! Mrs. Incredible kicks off the multi-week event…when Syndrome reveals himself and his diabolical plan to take control of the Kingdom! Hurry to stop the Omnidroid and defeat Syndrome!
- 6 New Characters
- 50 New Quests
- 7 New Attractions
- 5 New Decorations
- New Parade Float
- Bug Fixes and Minor Improvements
Obviously this is reference to The Incredibles. I’m a little sad as part of me was sure we were going to get some Aladdin characters this round, BUT we did get some cool buildings which I’ll get to later. I find it interesting that these characters are located above all the others. This is most likely to make them more accessible during this special timed event. All are grayed out for now except for Mrs. Incredible who we know will be the first character we add to our roster when we start the event.
While the characters remained locked, we did get some fancy new buildings to build. Two were gem accessed, while the last was potion accessed. The prices for these can be seen below.
– Builds Instantly with 80 gems
– 8 Hour Time
– Yields 34 experience and 175 potions
The Magic Lamp Theater
– Builds Instantly with 95 gems
– 6 Hour Time
– Yields 27 experience and 140 potions
The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
– Builds in 12 Hours for 45,000 potions
– 12 Hour Time
– Yields 30 experience and 180 potions
Obviously we have more attractions coming with The Incredibles event but as of now they are all marked with “Coming Soon.”
I’ll put up more about these as they become available.
Decorations are about the last thing I spend gems or potions on BUT some folks love dolling up their park so next up we have the new decor you’ll be showing off in your stylish park.
We have a lovely new Tron Mickey Light, which I will say is pretty awesome. We also have a Tron Lamp which is, well, there? You can buy it? I guess?
Of course, we will also see plenty of Incredibles statues and such, but those are still under strict lock and key.
New Parade Float
Just a quick mention of this one as we can’t actually use it yet, but it IS there!
New Building on Main Street
Okay, now with all that mumbo jumbo out of the way, we can get to the really juicy bits. The things that make us go hmmm? Sitting on Main Street at the end is a building which looks to be a bit of a theater.
The speculation is that this will be a place to watch ads or maybe old cinematics from the game, in order to earn some extra gems. As of now, it does nothing. Well, not NOTHING. It does look pretty sitting there. We’ll have to see if this opens up in the coming weeks.
This one is very interesting. Upon checking out Bo Peep, I noticed a 3 minute quest.
I know that many fans have been clamoring for more variety in quest length, you know, since we go from 60 seconds to 12 hours in many characters. This is really great to see especially knowing how hard it is to achieve the top tier when doing the Granting Wishes mini-event. So far this is the only character I’ve found with this, but I’m sure more are bound to pop up.
Confirmation for Gem Spending
In what might be the most exciting change for fans this update, you will now be asked if you are sure you want to spend gems. This should cut down majorly on the amount of gems lost due to accidental clicking. People rejoice, for Gameloft has heard our call. Now for all of you who fought so hard for this, take note. Your next goal is to get us Mini-Games. Say it with me now. Mini. Games.
New Load Screen
No more blue magical load screen with all the characters you know and love. The game now welcomes you in and let’s you know that action is on the way with the Incredibles cast gearing up on an orange background.
New Game Icon
New load screens mean new everything apparently. Get ready to have no idea what you’re clicking on for a while as the icon for the game has also changed. I love the orange color scheme and it’s a really great way to be eye catching on the phone screen.
So far, these are my findings. I’m sure more will pop up, but for now there you have it. I’ll do another post focused solely on the event once it starts. Until then, how are you guys feeling? Ready to get some Incredibles characters? Ready to not lose gems? Will you be buying Aladdin buildings with your gems? Let me know in the comments below!
