This week, EA and developer Firemonkeys rolled out the latest update for The Sims FreePlay. Dubbed “Baby Steps,” the update is, as the name suggests, all about babies and toddlers.
There’s lots new in this update, including giving little Sims the ability to crawl, the potential to fall as they take their first wobbly baby steps, and the opportunity to create mischief at the dining table. As a result, parents now have more responsibility than ever before.
“Play as the parents learning how to care for little ones on the fly or control the infants themselves as you cry out for mommy and daddy’s love and affect!” EA teased of the new update, which will more than likely convince quite a bit of players to hold off on having children.
The update will also bring two new hobbies (Musical Expression and Toddler Finger Painting), as well as two new quests (“Nanny Knows Best” and “Super Toddler Secret Mission Quest”). Check out the details below:
- Nanny Knows Best Quest – Simmers can get to know their bundles of joy when the babies begin crying out to be carried, bounced, fed and much more! (Full walkthrough here)
- Musical Expression Hobby – Find out how clever your Sims’ babies are by helping them express their inner musician.
- Toddler Finger Painting Hobby – Complete the Finger Painting hobby as a toddler, unlock the new Greatest Pop-Up book so and fillSims’ homes with works of art created by their little genius.
- Super Toddler Secret Mission Quest – Toddlers can take their imaginary friends on an adventure as they explore their hero side in the Super Toddler Secret Mission quest, blasting off on August 13.
The Sims FreePlay Baby Steps update is now live in the Apple App Store , Google Play, and Amazon App Store, and Windows Phone Store.
